(This joke can be embellished and extended to cover that awkward last ten minutes of the school day. Not recommended for infants.)
Once upon a time there was a family of gnus, mummy gnu, daddy gnu and baby gnu. They all lived happily together on the great plains of Africa. One day a nasty hunter tracked them and he trained his rifle on the daddy gnu and shot him dead.
The mummy gnu and baby gnu did their best to carry on but tragically one day when she was leaning over a cliff to reach some juicy grass she fell over the edge and fell onto the rocks below.
The baby gnu had no one left to protect him and a pack of hungry lions gobbled him up.
Well, that’s the end of the gnus…
Now for the weather forecast!
