I figured it was about time to laugh again with some pandemic jokes. After two years though it is tough to find ones you haven’t seen already. So I thought I’d throw in the story below. Yes, I’m making you read – but you can visualize the pictures.
One day, just before the gates open at the zoo, their gorilla dies of old age. It is the only one at the zoo – they are small and not very profitable.
However, the gorilla is their most popular attraction. 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 for an extra $100 a day. All he has to do is go into 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 peoples’ attention back, the worker decides to climb out of his enclosure and hang from the net ceiling above the lions’ den next door. A large crowd of people gather, watching the spectacle in awe and terror. Suddenly the man loses his grip and falls to the floor of the lion’s den. The man starts screaming “HELP!! HELP!!!”
Suddenly the lion pounces him from behind and whispers in his ear, “Shut up right now or you’re going to get us both fired.”
