A guy had been out of work for months and was getting desperate to find a job, so he decided to stop by the local zoo and apply for a job there. The director of the zoo said they weren't hiring, so as the dejected man turned to leave the director noticed how large he was. He stopped the guy and said, "Wait. I have an idea. Our gorilla died a couple of weeks ago and he was our main attraction. It will be months before we are able to get another gorilla. Would you be willing to dress like a gorilla? It would really help us out of a jam."

Being desperate for work, he took the job. The first few days were incredibly boring, so to liven things up a bit he started doing some tricks and really putting on a show. Before long, huge crowds were gathered to watch what they thought was a real gorilla.

One day, while showing off, he was on a rope and was swinging out over the lion's cage when the rope broke. He was terrified as he noticed a lion approaching him. He was afraid to scream for help thinking he might lose his job, but was afraid that if he didn't yell for help he might lose his life. So, he yelled out, "Help! Help!"

About that time the lion spoke up and said, "Shut up! Do you want to get us both fired?!"
