Human Baby Born In A Zoo

Sometimes where you are born can affect the rest of your life, and I don’t mean in a “if you’re born in France it makes you French” way. If you are born in a barn apparently that means you’ll be rubbish at shutting doors behind you. (Jesus solved this problem by having 12 people follow him round to make sure.)

Well, that’s bad news for a new baby that was born in a New York zoo. Yes, a woman gave birth on a wildlife path at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, delivering her baby girl with the help of zookeepers not far from the bear exhibit.

That’s got to be a tough one to live down. When people find out you were born in a zoo they’ll make jokes about you being an animal, about you throwing your own poo around, or about you being born in captivity. The only thing more embarrassing than being born in a zoo would be if you were conceived in one.

At some point in the future some work colleague will sing the funny version of Happy Birthday, the one that goes...

Happy Birthday to you.
You belong in a zoo.
You look like a monkey,
and you smell like one too.

...And she’ll bust into tears and run off.

But in reality it’s a good place to be. You’re surrounded by lots of people who have caring natures, some are medically trained, and it’s not like the stalk has that far to travel.

Vets know how to deliver babies in all types of situations so you’ll be safe. The only problem with a vet is how far in they try to shove their arm.

P.S. In case you're wondering, mother and baby are doing well. I'm sure they'll be released back into the wild soon. In the newspaper it also said, "Zoo Director Ted Fox says the zoo plans to send a gift to the family."

P.P.S. He's called Mr Fox. Of course, where else would he work?
