Raising Rabbits in Paris

A young American chef trying to make his way in France decided that the French would enjoy eating rabbit. So he decided to raise the rabbits by himself and sell them to the finer restaurants in the city.

He searched all over Paris looking for a suitable location to build a warren and raise his rabbits, but none could be found. At long last, an old priest at the cathedral said he could have a small area behind the rectory to house his rabbits.

He successfully raised a number of them and went around Paris selling them to the finer restaurants in the city. Upon his second or third visit to one such establishment, the owner asked him what his secret was; where had he gotten so many fresh rabbits?

"I raise them myself," the young man answered, "in a warren near the cathedral. You could say I have a hutch back of Notre Dame."

Thought for the Day

When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

Pun Liner of the Day

Support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.
