A biologist from the North Pole was showing a new recruit the ropes of a polar bear radio tracking program.
The new recruit said, "I know how the transmitters work, but I have one question--how do you catch the polar bears in the first place?" "I bet you use high-powered tranquilizer dart guns, right?" "Oh no!" the experienced biologist replied, "we use an ancient Eskimo technique, developed centuries ago.
First, we dig a huge hole in the ice.
Next, we place a circle of green peas all the way around the hole.
Then, we go hide behind some ice blocks and wait.
Finally, when a polar bear comes up to take a pea, we kick him in the ice-hole !!!"
