The Zoo Keeper – A Christmas pun – a shaggy dog story that I hope that you enjoy

This is the tale of the Crist family who worked at a zoo. Each year they claimed to be able to predict the overall mood of the year by watching the animals. In particular, the gnu’€™s who, if their ears were forward, predicted a successful, joyous year, but it their ears were laid back flat, predicted a sorrowful, disastrous year.

One year it was young Mary’€™s turn to ‘€œsurvey’€ the animals and come up with the prediction. It was her first time solo, and in her excitement, she forgot to check on the gnus. Well, she botched it, predicting a bad year, when in fact it was quite good.

In explanation, the next winter solstice, the local newspaper ran the following headline: … Mary Crist misses an happy gnu’€™s ear!
