Three nuns visited the zoo, and were very interested at the sight of a huge male gorilla in the ape house.
Two of the sisters were wary, but Sister Clementine was too bold and got very close to the cage.
Suddenly, the gorilla reached out, grabbed poor Sister Clementine, dragged her through the bars and set about her in a most lustful manner. When he had finished having his wicked way with her, he turned his back and carried on eating bananas.
Sister Mary and Sister Agatha were appalled. They rescued Clementine, readjusted her habit and tenderly carried her to their convent where they nursed her back to recovery.
The matter was never again mentioned for fear of causing embarrassment, but many years later, when Sister Clementine was on her death bed, Sister Mary and Sister Agatha were in attendance, and according to their rites, they were happy to listen to anything which troubled the dying nun's conscience.
"Oh, Sister Clementine" said Sister Agatha "We've never mentioned it, but before you go we thought you might like to talk about that awful incident with the gorilla!"
"Oh yes!" said Sister Mary " It must have hurt you terribly!"
"HURT?" gasped Sister Clementine "Of course it b***** hurt! After all that, he never wrote, he never even 'phoned .......!"
