It's all happening at the zoo

How cool is a zebra?

Or a giraffe?

Kangaroos and wallabies are slightly more commonplace around here

But a peacock strutting along the footpath just doesn't happen every day in normal life!

One of my favourite songs:

Someone told me, it's all happening at the zoo.
I do believe it, I do believe it's true.
It's a light and tumble journey from the East Side to the park;
Just a fine and fancy ramble to the zoo.
But you can take the crosstown bus if it's raining or it's cold,
And the animals will love it if you do ... if you do now.

Something tells me it's all happening at the zoo.
I do believe it, do believe it's true.

The monkeys stand for honesty, giraffes are insincere
And the elephants are kindly but they're dumb
Orangutans are skeptical of changes in their cages
And the zookeeper is very fond of rum
Zebras are reactionaries, antelopes are missionaries
Pigeons plot in secrecy, and hamsters turn on frequently
What a gas--you've come and see, At the zoo
(Paul Simon)

I thought of that song when I read your title.
