The Mime

One day an out of work mime is visiting the zoo and attempts to earn

some money as a street performer. Unfortunately, as soon as he starts
to draw a crowd, a zookeeper grabs him and drags him into his office.

The zookeeper explains to the mime that the zoo's most popular
attraction, a gorilla, has died suddenly and the keeper fears that
attendance at the zoo will fall off. He offers the mime a job to dress
up as the gorilla until they can get another one. The mime accepts.

So the next morning the mime puts on the gorilla suit and enters the
cage before crowd comes. He discovers that it's a great job. He can
sleep all he wants, play and make fun of people and he draws bigger
crowds than he ever did as a mime. However, eventually the crowds tire
of him and he tires of just swinging on tires.

He begins to notice that the people are paying more attention to the
lion in the cage next to his. Not wanting to lose the attention of his
audience, he climbs to the top of his cage, crawls across a partition,
and dangles from the top to the lion's cage. Of course, this makes the
lion furious, but the crowd loves it. At the end of the day the
zoo-keeper comes and gives the mime a raise for being such a good
attraction.

Well, this goes on for some time, the mime keeps taunting the lion,
the crowds grow larger, and his salary keeps going up. Then one
terrible day when he is dangling over the furious lion, he slips and
falls. The mime is terrified. The lion gathers itself and prepares to
pounce.

The mime is so scared that he begins to run round and round the cage
with the lion close behind. Finally, the mime starts screaming and
yelling, "Help, Help me!" but the lion is quick and pounces.

The mime soon finds himself flat on his back looking up at the angry
lion and the lion says, "Shut up you idiot! Do you want to get us both
fired?"
