Hunters unable to tell which season
Mass confusion has struck every major hunting association across the
world, with none of them able to tell whether it's duckseason, or rabbitseason.
The whole thing is being called absurd by the press, and Warner Brothers
has already threatened to sue. Meanwhile, the hunters are merely trying
to figure out what to shoot, and waiting for deerseason to start.
It all started when the hunters were out looking for ducks, when the suspicion
that maybe it was rabbit season started. Unable to resolve the issue,
the hunting team went to ask the organization, who sent it into an enormous
maze of bureaucracy to come up with the result that yes, ducks were indeed
real creatures, and there was indeed a season to hunt them, assuming you
filled out form 54678A for hunting animals that begin with the letter
D and form 90497q for animals ending with a k. Which, of course, didn't
help at all, but it was the best they could do at such short notice.
Similarly, posters scattered around never say the same thing after being
left unseen for more than 5 minutes, adding much confusion. Someone even
suggested this was the work of the rabbits and the ducks, but was quickly
mocked by everyone else, who claimed animals are pretty, but also pretty
dumb. He might still be right though, as nobody seems quite sane in this
whole mess. They've even decided that whichever animal is seen gets shot,
and the mess is to be sorted out later. Of course, this is illegal, meaning
the government can claim lots of fines. The problem being that most government
employees are the ones causing this ruckus (the world only has so many
loonies to go around), and that the way to manage these fines is actually
costlier than just letting them slide. Either way, the animals are most
likely not enjoying the situation, both the rabbits and the ducks, as
they are now the target of governmental stupidity, meaning they are now
