“Healthy eagles come from America. Ill eagles come from Mexico”

"Ill eagle” sounds like “illegal.” “Why are there so many ill eagles in Mexico? Since they鈥檙e the national bird of the US, shouldn鈥檛 we be helping them?” was posted on Reddit—Shittyaskscience on May 15, 2016.

“Healthy eagles come from America. But ill eagles come from Mexico” is a joke that was posted on Twitter by Krym Nash on June 15, 2019. “Healthy eagles come from America. Ill eagles come from Mexico” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on July 21, 2019.

“What鈥檚 the difference between ‘unlawful’ and ‘illegal’?"/"’Unlawful’ means ‘against the law.’ ‘Illegal’ (ill eagle) is a sick bird” is another “ill eagle” joke.


Wikipedia: Bald eagle
The bald eagle is both the national bird and national animal of the United States of America. The bald eagle appears on its seal. In the late 20th century it was on the brink of extirpation in the contiguous United States. Populations have since recovered and the species was removed from the U.S. government’s list of endangered species on July 12, 1995 and transferred to the list of threatened species. It was removed from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife in the Lower 48 States on June 28, 2007.
