Sure, Your Job Is Bad, But Not This Bad
Friday, March 6, 1998
YOUR JOB IS LOUSY, right? So as a public service, I present the first
installment of an occasional series, Jobs Even Worse Than Yours:
The San Francisco Zoo (I forgot to tell you to put down your doughnut, so
put down your doughnut) has an elephant named Calle who has a chronic
illness, requiring medication.
The zoo people couldn't get Calle to take her dose orally, so a Cal
pharmacologist developed a suppository. The 10-inch-long, four-pound,
cocoa-butter bullets are crafted by the good folks at Guittard Chocolates
Administering the daily medication takes five zoo workers (FIVE people have
jobs worse than yours!), including one person to distract Calle with treats
and one person who wears a full-arm glove.
Now stop bitching and get back to work.
