Rubber Chicken A mother and father named their child “Odd”. Because of his unfortunate name, poor Odd had the worst life you could imagine.

In school, he was always picked on and had trouble making friends. In college he never fit in and struggled to gain the respect of his peers. In life he drifted from job to job, unable to find steady work. He never found the love of his life and lived a lonely bachelor.

And so one day Odd decided he couldn’t go on anymore and took his own life. In his suicide note he demanded that his grave be a blank headstone with no mention of his name, so that he could be completely and utterly forgotten.

And yet every time someone walks past his grave, they see his wordless stone and go, “That’s odd…”

One is the third person use of “capable” or “permit”.
One means to sleep, but only for a bit.
The last word means a group of deer,
Perhaps now you can tell me, what words are here?

Rubber Chicken A research group on sea mammals captured a rather odd porpoise on one of its trips. Its peculiarity was that it had feet. After they had photographed and measured the poor thing, they prepared to set it free.

“Wait a minute,” said one of the researchers, “wouldn’t it be a kindness if our ship’s doctor here were to amputate the feet so that it would be like other porpoises?”

“Not on your life,” exclaimed the doctor. “That would be defeeting the porpoise.”
