Writers' Showcase

The dimwitted zookeeper spoke to the veterinarian, “I got a riddle for you, Doc--Where does an 800-pound gorilla sleep?”

They both eyed the extremely large Western lowland gorilla that had arrived yesterday from Cameroon. Upon hearing the zookeeper’s voice, the gorilla ambled over to the side of the cage where they both stood.

“I don’t know,” replied the veterinarian. “Where?”

The doctor of course knew the answer to the tired riddle.

“Anywhere I damn well please!” replied the gorilla.
