I Just Pass Them On

A man starts his new job at the zoo and is given three tasks.

The first is to clear the exotic fish pool of weeds. As he does this a huge fish jumps out and bites him. To show the others whose boss, he beats it to death with a spade.

Realising his employer won’t be best pleased, he disposes of the fish by feeding it to the lions – because lions eat anything.

Moving on to the second job of clearing out the chimpanzee house, he is attacked by the chimps who pelt him with coconuts. He swipes at two chimps with a spade, killing them both. What can he do now?

Feed them to the lions, he says to himself – because lions eat anything. He hurls the corpses into the lion enclosure.

He moves on to the last job, which is to collect honey from the South American Bees. As soon as he starts he is attacked and stung by the bees. He grabs the spade and smashes the bees to a pulp. By now he knows what to do and throws them into the lion’s cage – because lions eat anything.

Later that day a new lion arrives at the zoo.

He wanders up to another lion and says, “What’s the food like here?”

The other lions say, “Absolutely brilliant. Today we had fish and chimps with mushy bees.”
