Rib ticklers

A light hearted look at the meat industry.

A woman storms into a butcher's shop carrying a cooked leg of lamb. "Look here," she says. "This leg of lamb has shrunk to half its original size."

"That's like my jumper," says the butcher,

"I bought a new one the other day and when I washed it it was tiny!"

"Ooh," replies the woman, "Maybe they were from the same lamb."
