An unemployed Iranian living in London was looking
through the job section of the newspaper, and saw that
there was a vacancy in the London Zoo. He decides to
give it a try. The next day he takes the tube (subway)
to the Zoo, and presents himself to the Zoo keeper for
The Zoo keeper informs of the vacancy - You see we had
a Gorilla here, who was very popular with the crowds.
Sadly the Gorilla died last week. The crowds have gone
away. We made a costume out of the Gorilla's skin. We
want some one to wear the costume, and pretend to be a
Gorilla. Hopefully that way we can get the crowd back.
Can you do the job?
The Iranian thinks for a while and, says to himself
what the hell. So he accepts.
Next day he dutifully turns up for work. He wears the
Gorilla skin, and gets into a cage. He starts to
behave like a Gorilla, and boy is he good. He excells
in the job. The crowds return to see the Gorilla in
their hordes. The man is a genious. He swings from the
ropes. He bangs his chest, just like a Gorilla. The
crowds love him. Every day he improves his acts.
One day he swings so hard, that he is thrown out of
his own cage into the adjacent one. He looks up and
finds a Lion in the cage. He is actually in the Lion's
cage. He cries out ' Ya hazrat eh Abbas'. To which
lion says, ' Agha Shoma ham Irani hasteed?'
