I’m not one to tell another professional how to do his job, but I am both appalled and titillated by Grant Kother, a zookeeper in London.
Kother is trying to raise awareness about the plight on Sumatran tigers, and since in August there will actually be a “naked race” to benefit the large cats (called “Streak for Tigers”), what better way, he thought, to drop trou on the job.
All of which is fine and good. (I think he’s grrrreat!) Except that … damn! He’s a zookeeper! These are wild animals with sharp claws and teeth who might perceive a naked man as, if not a threat, then at least a meal.
Still, I applaud Kother — of course for his interest in preserving wildlife. Of course in his dedication to a noble cause. But also, let’s face it, for his exercise regimen. If I had glutes like that, I’d probably go naked at work, too. That I don’t must be a relief to all of my co-workers.
