Maybe Two More

One or two more for the contest. Here's the latest.
Sir Lancelot and Sir Galahad were travelling by sea to a distant land to fight dragons. Neither was aware that the other was on board. One evening while they were out on the sea, each decided to take a stroll on the deck. It was dark and the sea was calm. Sir Galahad and Sir Lancelot walked from opposite ends of the boat, and somewhere in the middle they brushed by each other, their armor clinking in the stillness of the night. A fellow traveller was heard to remark, "I just saw ??? ??????? ??????? ?? ??? ????."
Just think...we're almost finished with the contest you thought would never end!

Here's Dudley!

Getting a dreaded bath
In Ally's bed
In Mom's bed
In his bed
His friend from Aunt Pam

The new pup
Favorite couch - Favorite toy
Missing Ally
On patrol

Ally requested some pictures of the dog she received for her 16th birthday. He used to be a cute little Jack Russell pup. Now, he has grown into a 3 1/2 year old monster. He is pretty much loved by everyone, though.

As The Crow Flies

The answers to the last contest are: as the flies crow and as the cries flow. I think there will be only one or two more.
I will try to post some pictures of Dudley soon. Ally has requested some pictures of her dog, and I have taken a few of him recently. He had to have a steroid shot for a rash that he had, so I am blaming the steroids for his size. He is a little plus-sized.

A Double

Here's a double play for you.
A scientist spent many years teaching common houseflies to act like chickens. He finally perfected the process and now each morning he is awakened "?? ??? ????? ????".
If someone had quadruplets, and they were all hungry at once, you'd know - "?? ??? ????? ????".
Maybe this one is so far out that even Regi can't get it. It's the same cliche twisted two different ways. By the way, I am getting closer to the end of my ideas. I hear the cheers.

He was charged with "transporting gulls across an estate lion for immortal porpoises". I know, that was a little obtuse. I've got a few more cliches lined up and then we'll be finished with this nonsense.

Quick Clues

Here are some clues for the previous contest. The five words that are used in the puns are: gulls, estate, lion, immortal(from live forever) and porpoises. Since he carried some gulls across the lion he was charged with a crime. I'll give you a few more days before publishing the answer.

With What Crime Was He Charged?

This one is not original. I think it was in Reader's Digest many years ago. I remember the punch line, but I will be supplying some of the extras through the story. It is not really a twist on a saying like most have been. It is more like a five-word pun. I don't think that it is one that can be solved, but maybe someone will surprise me. I hope so.
A wealthy man lived in a beautiful estate near the beach. He was rather eccentric, and he had four Atlantic porpoises in his large aquarium. A large lion was always tied at the front doors to his mansion. He had heard an old man say that a certain species of sea gull could be fed to porpoises, allowing them to live forever. Well, he loved his porpoises and set out to the beach to find sea gulls. He found the correct type and took them back home. When he arrived, he saw that his lion was sound asleep in front of the door. Not wanting to disturb him, he carefully climbed over the top of the sleeping beast and entered his home. There, he fed the gulls to his porpoises. Later that evening, he was arrested for the crime that he had committed. Do you know what crime it was?
I will supply some clues later if no one comes up with the answer. Remember, there are five puns used. I don't think that I would be able to solve it if I were trying from your end. I will wait for a few of you to reply, and then try to give a few hints.
