The Zookeeper’s Request

A zookeeper wanted to open a new exhibit and wrote a letter to another zookeeper to ask for a breeding pair of mongoose.

He wrote, “Please send me two mongooses” and then realized that it just didn’t sound right. He tore up the letter and started again.

This time he wrote, “Please send me two mongeese.” Again, this didn’t sound right.

He tore up the letter and started again. “Please send me a mongoose,” he wrote this time, and then he added, “While you’re at it, please send me another one.”
