The Pink Gorilla

One day in the middle of the desert a man’s car breaks down.
He sees a gas station about 5 minutes away, so he pushes his car to the gas station. Six hours and lots of money later, the man’s car is fixed, but night is falling. The man asks the mechanic, “Hey, where is the nearest hotel?”
The mechanic replies, “No hotel here, but about 100 miles down the road you’ll see there’s a room under the cactus there. But what ever you do don’t touch the big pink gorilla.”
The man drives to the cactus. He opens a door and shuts it behind him, finds another door and shuts it behind him, then he finds a third door and shuts it behind him.
Lo and behold he sees a big pink gorilla in the room. The gorilla is docile and looks so cute and soft he’s dying to touch it. He can’t help himself. He walks over to the cage and starts trying to touch him through the bars.
As soon as the man lays a finger on him, the big pink gorilla freaks out. He beats his chest and rips his cage door clean off.
The man runs for his life. He opens the first door, slams it behind him. Opens the second door, slams it behind him. The man hear a crash as he opens the third door and slams it behind him.
The man hears a roar. He runs to the car, opens the door and shuts it. He locks all the doors and starts the car, as he sees the big pink gorilla racing towards him.
The big pink gorilla rips the car door off his car.The man thinks he’s going to die.
The gorilla pokes the guy and says, “Tag you’re it!”

    Please note: a man NEVER follows directions!!!

  2. I’m guessing you found your high school diary. Sorry, Journal.

  3. You have to post a warning on these things, Perry! Something like, “WARNING! DO NOT READ if you have just had stomach surgery.”
    If I read too many of these I will be able to cancel next week’s appointment to remove my staples.

  4. My husband tells this story (with variations) on the bus when his high school softball team goes on trips. He draws the end out over and over by having the man chicken out every time before he opens the last door and discovers the pink gorilla. I’m talking stretching it out for hours until the girls are literally begging him to finally open that last door.

    When he finally does, the pink gorilla in his story is monstrously huge and ferocious. It chases the man through the house and out the door, and when it finally catches him and he thinks he’s a goner, it says . . . yep, same thing. “Tag, you’re it.”
