CLARIFICATION: Zookeepers are NOT the worst! They're the best. We love zookeepers and farmers. Especially the zookeepers at North Georgia Zoo.
They will even bring their beasts to you!
[HIPPO] I am a thoughtful beast. I think some thoughts.
[BIRD] I am a thoughtful beast. I think some wistful lofty thoughts
[BUTTERFLY] I think about nectar and the flavor of it.
[EAGLE] I think about America and how much I love it!
[LION] I think about if tourists are good or evil.
[HORSE] I think branding's uncool -- seriously, people.
[WHALE SHARK] I think about the unexplored regions of space.
[OSTRICH] I DON'T THINK MUCH JUST LOOK AT MY FACE!
[GORILLA] I think about if I could wax my back.
[SQUIRREL] I think a ham & cheese sandwich is a tasty snack.
[HEN] I am a thoughtful beast. And right now I'm thinking about the millions of microorganisms living on my body. It's like I'm a mothership. An actual mother hen ship.
[COW] I think about how I could get on the evening news if I strolled into McDonalds and started to moo.
[PIG] I wonder if it would be sardonic for me to tell you, "Rub some bacon on it."
[RABBIT] Some words from my mother I like to recall: if you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all.
[MONKEY] I think about the moment when Tarzan met Jane. Was it like when those Lost folks got off that plane? Did he understand she was human like him? Or did he think her a polar bear, or some kind of chimp?
[BUFFALO (yes, we know they are actually wildebeests)] Why do we all like to scuffle so? Like it's the World Cup and we're on Team Buffalo? Maybe Mark Ruffalo could narrate our documentary on posing for nickelback and turning Ted Turner-y.
[ELEPHANT] Why am I the symbol of the GOP? And why does GOP stand for Grand Old Party? Could be that I'm wrinkled like a candidate's suit. Or I have my own horn that I like to toot.
[DONKEY] Choosing an elephant is just as wonky as representing your party with the sign of a donkey. Yeah we work hard like the middle class. But you can't avoid jokes about being a grass-eater.
[BIRD] I think about the human song the bird is the word. If everybody's heard, about the bird, then why are words needed, to tell everybody, that the bird bird bird, the bird is the word, except to dance? Which they can't do like me, though they try to be, fly like me. Shaking tail feathers from here to eternity.
[ZEBRA] That's pretty dope.
[MYTHICAL BEAST] I am a thoughtful beast. Right now, I'm thinking about going away for ten years and just thinking marketable thoughts. But first I've got an internet morning show sharing thoughts with this beast..
[DOG] I think -- how do I know that you and me, see the same shades the same way when you and me see? Is my white black for you? Or my gray your gray too? Could it be true we see differing hues?
[CAT] And say we do. Then how would we discover this fact? And even if we did, would there even be any impact? I don't think this would affect us purrrrsonally. I'm still going to scratch you the next time you sniff me.
[ANT] I think about humans who like to rant about what it would be like to be turned into an ant. They make weird movies how they shrunk the kids or say "I'd spell out a message!" in their YouTube vid. But I don't think they know how numbers come into play. How expendable we are at the end of the day. I think in their world, the word "me" means a lot. And they can't comprehend where it don't mean squat.
[PANDA] I am a thoughtful beast.
[GOAT] I am a thoughtful beast. And right now, I'm thinking about, what if I was abducted by aliens? But then I think, how is that any different from being abducted by farmers?
[PANDA] Or zookeepers!
[GOAT] Yeah, zookeepers are the worst! Let's talk about that!
[PANDA] No, kid, I'm depressed now. I'm gonna go to my cave to...think.
[GOAT] Yeah...think. Let's go think.
