A man woke up one morning and looked out of his bedroom window, finding to his utmost surprise that there was a gorilla in the tree in his back yard.
He looked in the phone book and sure enough he found an advertisement for a “Gorilla Catcher”.
So, he called the number in the phone book and when he asked them if they could remove the gorilla, the man who answered asked him, “Is it a male or female gorilla?”
“It’s a male”, the man replied.
“Oh yeah, we can do that, I will be there in about 45 minutes”, the gorilla catcher said.
Well, the man waited, rather frustrated and worried in case the gorilla came down and caused some damage, but about an hour later, the Gorilla Catcher showed up. with a stick, a rottweiler, a shotgun and a large pair of handcuffs.
He then gave the man the handcuffs and the shotgun.
The gorilla catcher told the man, “Right. I’m going to climb this tree and poke at the gorilla with the stick until he falls out of the tree. When he does, the trained rottweiler will move in and bite the gorilla’s private parts. The gorilla will then cross his hands across himself for protection and that’s when you move in with the handcuffs!”
The man went pale and asked, “Um, okay, it sounds a bit risky and complicated, but what do I do with the shotgun?”
The gorilla catcher replied, “Hopefully nothing and you won’t need the shotgun, but if I happen to fall out of the tree before the gorilla, you shoot that rottweiler!”
