Max Outt, Arrogant Personal Trainer, Episode 10, Gorilla Boss
Max Outt here at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park’s gorilla exhibit. This is kind of cool because the humans on this side of the exhibit respect me and so do the gorillas on the other side. However, just between you and me, I fear that I’m confusing the hell out of the gorillas today. They’re used to their kind being on the other side of the barrier but today they don’t know what’s going on. Because of my build they must see me as a silverback and they’re all like.” Why is not only a gorilla like us, but an alpha male, outside the barriers walking around free”. At the same time, the silverback male is no doubt relieved that I’m on this side of the barrier. I’m careful not to get too close to the railing as the silverback may fear that may fear that I’m climbing over and panic. And now it just occurred to me that these awestruck zoo goers also might view me as a silverback and therefore panic as well. I walk a fine line being Max Outt!
