A small Alabama Zoo had acquired a female gorilla. Within a few weeks, the gorilla went into heat, and became difficult to handle. To make matters worse, there were no male gorillas available.
While reflecting on their problem, the park administrators noticed Ed, a part time keeper responsible for cleaning the cages.
Ed had little sense and a reputation for being none too picky about the women he took to bed. With that in mind, the park administrators thought they might have a solution. They approached Ed with a proposition.
“Would you be willing to have sex with that gorilla for $500?” they asked him.
Ed showed some interest, but said he would have to think the matter over carefully.
The following day, Ed announced that he would accept their offer, but only under three conditions.
“First,” he said, “I don’t want to have to kiss her. Secondly, you must never tell anyone about this.”
The park administration quickly agreed to these conditions, so they asked what was his third condition.
“Well,” said Ed, “You gotta give me another week to come up with the $500.”
