And now for the weekly joke ...
One day an out of work mime is visiting the zoo and attempts to earn some
money as a street performer. Unfortunately, as soon as he starts to draw a
crowd, a zoo keeper grabs him and drags him into his office.
The zoo-keeper explains to the mime that the zoo's most popular attraction, a
gorilla, has died suddenly and the keeper fears that attendance at the zoo
will fall off. He offers the mime a job to dress up as the gorilla until they
can get another one. The mime accepts.
So the next morning the mime puts on the gorilla suit and enters the cage
before crowd comes. He discovers that it's a great job. He can sleep all he
wants, play and make fun of people and he draws bigger crowds than he ever
did as a mime. However, eventually the crowds tire of him and he tires of
just swinging on tires.
He begins to notice that the people are paying more attention to the lion in
the cage next to his. Not wanting to lose the attention of his audience, he
climbs to the top of his cage, crawls across a partition, and dangles from
the top to the lion's cage. Of course, this makes the lion furious, but the
crowd loves it. At the end of the day the zoo-keeper comes and gives the mime
a raise for being such a good attraction.
Well, this goes on for some time, the mime keeps taunting the lion, the
crowds grow larger, and his salary keeps going up. Then one terrible day when
he is dangling over the furious lion, he slips and falls. The mime is
terrified. The lion gathers itself and prepares to pounce.
The mime is so scared that he begins to run round and round the cage with the
lion close behind. Finally, the mime starts screaming and yelling, "Help,
Help me!" but the lion is quick and pounces.
The mime soon finds himself flat on his back looking up at the angry lion and
the lion says, "Shut up you idiot! Do you want to get us both fired?"
If you have a joke you would like to be used in this situation - please email it to me privately please.
