A zoo keeper asked a big, strong fellow: Want a job?

Doing what? he asked.

Our gorilla died, the zoo keeper replied. If we got you a special suit, would you imitate him for several days?

Yes sir! he answered.

He did very well, until one day he accidentally entered in the lion’s den. Help! he yelled.

Shut up, you idiot! cried the man dressed as a lion. You’ll get us both fired.
