      Hi Smoosher 🙂

      Was it to show the chicken how it was done?! I don’t know why did the platypus cross the road?

      I love platypus’ they are such cool animals for so many reasons. They are the only poisonous mammal, they can detect changes in electrical signals, the females don’t have nipple they secrete milk for their young like sweat and they lay eggs!! they are fab creatures!

      A platypus walks into a bar and tells the bartender,”Got any grapes?” The bartender says ,”No, now go away!.” The platypus walks int othe bar again and says, “Got any grapes?” The bartender says,”No and if you ask me that one more time I’ll staple your webbed feet into the floor!” The platypus walks into the bar again and says,”Do you have any staples?” And the bartender says,”No.” Then the platypus says,”Got any grapes?” 😀

      To beat the chicken?

      Not that he needed to. Platypuses (platypi?) are fascinating anyway. Classed as mammals, but they lay eggs, and have a bill like a duck, and a tail like a beaver. They’re also one of the few venemous mammals.

      One thing I like about the internet is that you can find the answers to anything on it. Of course, the answers you find might not always be true or accurate and you should probably take them with a large handful of salt, but here’s a page of platypus based jokes for your amusement:
