A real life Parable from the San Francisco Zoo.


Fire on Monkey Island (a real life parable!)

Penguin Island used
to be Monkey Island

but San Francisco is
too cold for monkeys

so they put up
heaters on Monkey island

but monkeys (being monkeys)
tipped them over

frequently creating
fires on Monkey Island

that's how Monkey Island became
Penguin Island

San Francisco Zoo
