Sometimes working in schools and public parks such as zoos, you overhear things that make you go all, uh uh, she did not just say that. Below are some of these things:
Two kids walking up on a burro from behind: “Look, here’s the kangaroos!”
Same kids, pointing at llamas: “I found the giraffes!”
Mom, pointing to an Angus cattle: “Look honey, this is where our hamburgers come from… and our steak.. and what else.. oh yeah, milk.. and bacon.”
Mom, pointing at fence in front of her 5 year old, “Do these animals ever just jump over this shit?” Zookeeper: “No.” Mom: “Well I’m scared they are gonna jump over this shit.”
Man to zookeeper: “What time does the peacock display his feathers?” zookeeper: “He pretty much just does it whenever he wants.” man: “No, it’s a certain time… I must have missed it.”
(this one I have already shared but it’s one of my favorites) Little boy, yelling at Mona Monkeys: “You are from Africa and I am from planet EARTH!!”
…. and the moral of this story is, if you are going to go to the zoo and be ignant, maybe don’t talk so loud.
