The Continuing Crisis at the Zoo

The staff at Chessington Zoo has issued an apology after guests at the zoo expressed their horror at the potent smell that started emanating from the gorillas' enclosure.

Gorilla keeper Michael Rozzi said: "We feed the gorillas brussel sprouts during the winter because they are packed with vitamin C and have great nutritional benefits. "Unfortunately, an embarrassing side effect is that it can cause bouts of flatulence in humans and animals alike."However, I don't think any of us were prepared for a smell that strong."

Bean-o, anyone?

Yeah, that's what I thought, too -- Brussel Sprouts are a great food and probably can be sourced locally in England in winter, so why not just give the gorillas some bean-o and keep everyone happy?

I once worked at a farm/petting zoo, where I overheard a very prim- looking lady visitor complain loudly to her husband and anyone else who cared to hear, "THIS PLACE SMELLS LIKE A BARNYARD!!!". Her husband turned to her and quietly replied, "Honey, it IS a barnyard!".....L.B.
