Local Guy Finds Work At Zoo

Local Guy Finds Work At Zoo
This out-of-work guy needs a job so he decides to apply for a job at the local zoo. Strange as can be, the zoo’s star attraction, a gorilla, had passed but they had a local taxidermist in Semmes preserve his hide. The zoo owners tell the guy that they’ll pay him well if he will dress up in the gorilla skin and pretend to be the gorilla so people will keep coming to the zoo. Well, the guy has his doubts, but he really needs some income, so he puts on the nicely preserved skin and goes out into the gorilla cage. The people all cheer and applaud so much the guy gets carried away and really starts playing the part.

Phillip recognized that Semmes Alabama was growing by leaps and bounds so he decided he would fulfill his dream of opening a pet store somewhere in the Semmes area.

David goes into the pet store and asks Phillip if he had any parrots. Phillip told him that he had a couple of very young parrots that had not learned to talk yet and he had acquired one very experienced parrot from a guy that dropped him off at the store before leaving town.
