A little boy really loved animals and wanted to go to the zoo more than anything else. He repeatedly asked and pestered his parents for days.
Finally. his mother convinced his reluctant father into taking him on the weekend.
“So how was it?” his mother asked when they returned home.
“It was great!” the little boy replied.
“Did you like the animals?” asked his mother.
“Yeah, they were great and Daddy really liked it!” exclaimed the little boy excitedly.
“Really?” asked his mother. “I didn’t know that your father liked the animals so much.”
“Yeah,” replied her son, “especially when one of them came home at 30 to 1!”
