Please Save Our Zoos

I recently watched a story about how zoos around the country are being forced to sell off animals and possibly even close due to the economic downturn. It seems people are not as willing to part with their cash to see monkeys, zebras, wild dogs, and dinosaurs (I think that's what they have at the zoo?) in these uncertain times. Because The Shark Tank cares (and because I still have to meet that 15% quota), here are some ways America's zoos can raise their revenues and stay afloat.

Wonder how difficult it is to get the pedo. bear seal of approval.

Please tell me that bat is a chihuahua in a blanket.

These are great!!!! I would probably still fork over the $20 per person admission fee to get a crack at some of these "options."

Shawn said...

C.B - I don't know if it's that hard to get, but the monthly dues are rather steep.

Heather - the bat was part of the original ad, so I don't know. Upon close examination, however, that does appear to be the case. Although, on the other hand, the differences between the two are negligible.

OldWestMom - you've got your eye on one of those sting rays, don't you?

Srsly, if they had chihuahuas in blankets and lolcats at the zoo, I would probably never leave. Also the Orang Utans. I might even pay to see Blue Utans.

I don't go to the zoo any more. I have my own zoo at home. I have a WTF cat, a LOL dog, and a TGIF (thank god I'm free) bird. But on the day the bird was free, my WTF cat ate it.

brilliant ideas! LOLcatz belong at the zoo!

Shawn said...

Heather: There's no doubt at all that I would pay to go see Blue Utans.

Carl: That sounds like quite the menagerie. You could probably charge an admission.

Dizzblnd: They belong somewhere...

Poor Steve Irwin...
I am still sad about that!!!!!!

Kirsten said...

With your good ideas, you could just single handedly jumpstart the economy!

HumorSmith said...

Hysterical. I would definitely visit that zoo. Well, except for the performing alligator.

Dalton J. Fox said...

These are all great ideas. I'd definitely visit that zoo ... well, if they got rid of the whole Pedobear thing.

And I would've never noticed that was a chihuahua. Good eyes, Heather.

Shawn said...

Steph: yeah, me too. That was a great show and he was a great personality.

Kirsten: I know, I need an audience with the President.

Humorsmith: That's only because you don't know what the alligator does. Hint: it involves salt water taffy and the Macarena.

Dalton: Now that I think about it, I think it being a chihuahua is the whole point of the "there's no substitute for the zoo" thing. It totally flew over my head, no pun intended.
