Zoo Mime

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 zoos 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 its 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 lions 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?
