The Cincy gorilla story makes me sick so I thought I would share a good natured zoo story.
I had my 5 year old son at the San Antonio zoo and we were checking out the hippos. There is a clear plexiglass walled swimming area where you stand right next to the hippos while they are in the water with some big carp swimming around with them. We are in the crowd and this hippo that is swimming takes giant shit in the water. There is a big cloudy mess right behind him and a carp immediately swims between his legs right through the hot mess. My son yells out "look Dad, that hippo just pooped a fish!" Everyone busted out laughing and my kid was super proud. I guess I was too.
