Agent Llearson got a call from a frantic farmer early in the morning. One of his prize llamas had disappeared while he was waiting by an expectant llama. Apparently, the farmer had done nothing but stay by the llama for days, as the birth could occur at any time. However, he still needed to feed the other llamas, so while quickly stocking their hay, the farmer noticed one of his favorite llamas was missing. And recently too, judging by the fact the other llamas were still hanging around the gate, a place they normally avoided. The farmer wanted Agent Llearson to come over right away to investigate. Llearson agreed, hung up the phone, and grabbed the keys to the car.

Just outside the llama farm, Agent Llearson saw a van parked by the gate. The person inside saw him and climbed out with a nervous smile. Llearson greeted the man and asked him what he was doing there. The man identified himself as a llama expert, and said he had come to the farm to help with the new birth.

Llearson nodded and said "It must be very hard work being such an expert on llamas."

"Oh yes," said the man, "Sometimes there are so many llama kids being born, I find myself very tired from all that strenuous work, and go to sleep as soon as I get home."

"Well, I'm afraid you won't be going anywhere tonight except jail if you don't return the llama you stole from that frantic farmer right now, Mr. Expert." said Llearson with a faint smile on his face.

How did Agent Llearson know the man's reason for being there was false? And how did Agent Llearson know the man actually took the llama?

That's a wonderful story, and very amusing. Thanks for posting it.
Oct 01, 2005

Oh cmon. Camels are sentinent enought to figure that one out. Make a harder one next time.
Oct 01, 2005

Thanks for the lesson. I figured the guy with the van took the llama. Most animal births don't need assistance. And how would he know about the recent birth if the farmer hadn't called (no mention). I didn't know what a baby llama was called. Amusing and informative. Keep them coming.
Oct 01, 2005

I liked your teaser, and as you well know I love llamas.
Oct 01, 2005

Oh my gosh. Llamas? Llamas are soooooooooo overrated. You only like them bcuz every1 else likes them! It is just so annoying to see someone say that because you know that the only reason you like them is because eerybody else likes them! Sorry about the little outburst, but that is so annoying!! By the way, good teaser, except for the whole llama part.
Oct 02, 2005

Oct 11, 2005

Oct 27, 2005

I only figured it out b/c he called it a kid. i think llamas are cute. definitiely underrated in my opinion. they just don't get the respect they deserve.
Nov 10, 2005

I got the last two answers but did not get the first one
Nov 13, 2005

A bit on the obvious side, as he was the only one there. I got it right after the "kid" part.

Nov 22, 2005

Good teaser, but why would you want to steal a llama?
Dec 05, 2005

i think llamas are very cute and not overrated like someppl think, and, you dont have to like something just because everyone else like them, everyone is an individual, read anthem if you dont believe me. Oh, and good teaser, it was one of the few ive gotten so far!
Dec 17, 2005

Jan 02, 2006

very easy but a great teaser
Feb 20, 2006

Why was it sad that he returned the llama?
Mar 15, 2006

the thief returned the llama sadly bcuz he was sad that he had to return it. the point of stealing it was to not give it back so he obviously didnt like giving it back. hope that helps paul!
Mar 15, 2006

Apr 15, 2006

Very easy, but I laughed out loud when reading the answer about the llama spitting on the so called expert!

By the way, iLuVcOwS_00-- I love cows too! But we do have the most adorable llama living next door named Llama Dude.
Jun 13, 2007

I only knew one thing: that an expert wouldn't call a baby llama a kid.
Sep 22, 2007

Nov 18, 2007

AHHH! I know nothing about llamas! However, I did get it right, cuz I mean, why else would that guy be there? Speaking of him, why was he still there?
Mar 19, 2008

Fun teaser, it gave me an idea for my own teaser I called it "Missing Lamas"
Jun 19, 2009

I figured it was because of the "kid" of the few teasers I even try. But great story, I gotta say.
