Fake Gorilla


A gorilla dies of old age just before a zoo opens. It is the only gorilla at the zoo. Since the zoo is not very profitable and the gorilla is their most popular attraction by far, they cannot 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 and pretend to be the gorilla.

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 lion’s den next to him. A large crowd of people gather watching the spectacle in awe and terror.

The man loses his grip and falls to the floor of the lion’s den. The man starts screaming “Help!! Help!!”

The lion pounces on him from behind and whispers in his ear, “Shut up right now or you’re going to get us both fired.”
