An excerpt …
(A day at the zoo.)
ALBERTA: (singing some tune) It’s a lovely day today, and whatever you got to do, it’s a lovely day to ... (there is a commotion outside and we hear ... )
DONNA: I resent this type of treatment! Hey, no need to push. I’m going in! I’m going in!
ALBERTA: Whoops, so much for the single supplement. Looks like I’m getting a roommate.
DONNA: (brushing self off) Everybody’s so crass these days. There’s no one left but me who has any manners. (sees Alberta) What are you staring at?
ALBERTA: Hey! Hakuna Matata, baby. I’m starin’ at nothin’. Just ... nothin’!
(Meet your roommate.)
ALBERTA: Well, I’m a little slow getting started but after my pump is primed I make up for it. A lot of the others jokingly say it was my conversation that really killed the aardvark. But, anyway, I have a delightful sense of humor ... that the aardvark didn’t appreciate. Try these for instance ... What do you get when you cross an aardvark with a heater? An antheater! Get it? An antheater! Well, the aardvark didn’t think that was funny ... and that was one of my better ones. I got a million of ‘em.
DONNA: I think I get the picture.
(It’s a place for the extinct.)
ALBERTA: Everything. Trappers, famine, polluted water (looks out bars and yells at the African Wild Dogs) ... and WILD DOGS!!! I was lucky to get here at all. Say ... I’ve never seen one of you up close before. Aren’t you ... a ...
DONNA: ... a people, yes. But I ... I never expected to end up here.
ALBERTA: Really? Doesn’t surprise me a bit. You got all the rest of us extinct. It was just a matter of time before you got here. What’d you expect? Killing, water pollution, air poisoning, soil erosion no appreciation for animal rights, or lefts.
DONNA: I ... we didn’t mean to ... (pause to listen) What’s that laughing? Who’s laughing at me?
ALBERTA: It’s the hyena next door. Oh! Oh! You know what you get when you cross a hyena with a vampire? You get a monster who snickers at the sight of blood! Get it?
DONNA: (looks around slowly, thinking) Yes. Yes. It’s a little late. But I think I get it.
(As Donna turns and walks off, Alberta follows her saying ...
ALBERTA: So I told the aardvark, I said, “With your family tree, the best part is underground!”... Get it? Huh? Get it?
