Why does a flamingo stand on one leg?
Because if he lifted that leg off the ground he would fall down!

Interesting Fact: In ancient Rome, flamingo tongues were regarded as a delicacy. As recently as 30 years ago, flamingos and their eggs were eaten by people in parts of southern Europe and the Caribbean. ( http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/940/overview/American_Flamingo.aspx )
