It was for all in tents and porpoises

As a nice segue from tent to animal puns, this post features one pun from each.

Explanation for the kids (and bad puns)

The phrase "for all intents and purposes" actually originated in English law in the 1500's. It is used as an idiom for "practically speaking". It is also sometimes misused (as a malapropism) by saying "for all intensive purposes".

In our pun, we changed it to "in tents" and "porpoises". As improbable as that is in real life, it sounded like an exclusive party to us.
