Zoo Loses Its Famous Gorilla
The main attraction in a small zoo was a famous gorilla who would do all kinds of tricks. He was the only gorilla in the zoo, but one day he dies of old age.
Since the gorilla was their most popular attraction by far and the zoo is very small, they can’t afford to go a day without it. So the zoo owner asks one of his workers to wear a gorilla suit they have in storage.
He’s told that he’ll get an extra $100 a day if he will go in the gorilla cage and pretend to be the gorilla until the zoo can afford a new one.
Quickly, the new “gorilla” becomes the most popular craze at the zoo. People from all over are coming to see the “human-like” gorilla.
About a month in, the craze has started to wear off. So, to get people’s attention back, he decides to climb over his enclosure and hang from the net ceiling above the lions’ den next to him.
A large crowd of people gathers, watching the spectacle in awe and terror. Suddenly the man loses his grip and falls to the floor of the lions den.
The man in the gorilla suit panics and starts screaming, “HELP!! HELP!!!”
Suddenly a lion pounces him from behind and whispers in his ear, “Shut the hell up right now, or you’re going to get us both fired!”
