Don’t Miss the Giant Egress

Did you hear about the zoo manager who had trouble getting visitors to leave at closing time. Just before closing, he would put up a large a sign saying “This way to the giant egress.” Curious hordes went that way and, of course, found themselves back out on the street. Nothing misleading about that.

    Yeah, I heard about it, only it was P. T. Barnum and apparently it didn’t occur to him to put the word “giant” on the sign.
