A small zoo in Brakpan acquired a very rare species of gorilla. Within a few weeks the gorilla, a female, became very difficult to handle. Upon examination the vet discovered the problem. The gorilla was in season. To make matters worse there was no male gorilla available.
Pondering over their problem the zoo-keeper thought of Frik van Wyk, a local lad and part-time worker responsible for cleaning the animal cages. Frik, like many of the Brakpan men-folk, had little sense but possessed ample ability to satisfy a female of any species. The zoo-keeper thought they might have a solution.
Frik was approached with a proposition. Would he be willing to mate with the gorilla for R5000? Frik showed some interest but said he would have to think the matter over carefully.
The following day he announced that he would accept their offer, but only under 4 conditions:
“First”, Frik said “I’m not going to kiss her on the lips!” The keeper quickly agreed to this condition.
“Second”, he said, “You can never tell anybody about this.” The keeper again readily agreed to this condition.
“Third” said Frik “I want all the babies raised as Blue Bull supporters.” Once again it was agreed.
“Fourth and last of all, “ Frik said, “You’ll need to give me another week to come up with the R5000.”
