In the book Ernesto Joked by Hazel Pacheco, a joyful covey of birds enjoys their days with Ernesto, the group's resident comedian, always sharing jokes that send them into fits of laughter. Their joyful chirping came to a stop when a coyote enters their territory. It turns out, the coyote is in search of a new home after humans encroached on his previous home. Annoyed by Ernesto's playful banter, the coyote proposes a challenge: If Ernesto can make him laugh with one of his jokes, he'll continue his search elsewhere.
