Roar Talent

Hoaxers Show Animal Instincts

Hoax calls to Dublin Zoo for Rory Lion and G Raffe are jamming its telephone switchboard. Up to 5000 unsuspecting victims of a practical joke are flooding the phone lines at the Phoenix park attraction. Callers now hear a specially recorded message: "If you are calling to speak to Mr Rory Lion, C Lion, G Raffe or anyone similar please be aware that you are the victim of a hoax message."

FOOTNOTE: What about Anna Condor?

I used to leave notes on my co-workers desks with the zoo's phone number and for them to call
"Mr Lyon"

Some of the denser ones didn't catch on until the Zoo employee offered to let them speak to Mr
Hippopotumus instead.
