Joke: The gorilla and the tiger at the zoo

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 a gorilla until they can get 
another one. The mime accepts the job.

So the next morning the mime puts on the gorilla suit and enters the 
cage before the 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 the audience, he climbs to the 
top of his cage, crawls across a partition, and dangles from the top 
of 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 as a gorilla.

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 himself 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?"
