Nintendo Zoo Keeper Quotes

As Jonathan Richman might have said: "I like this game; I like it a lot" (in the unlikely event of Jonathan preferring Nintendo to Dodge Veg-o-matics).

So, Zoo Keeper...

You round up escaped animals, trying to score as many points as you can. At the end of the game, the zoo keeper (he's supposed to be your father) waves a cigar at you and makes a comment (presumably translated direct from the original Japanese). Sometimes these comments are kind, at other times soul-destroying, but more often than not, highly amusing.

This post collects together ninety-three of Zoo Keeper's sayings (in alphabetical order - it was already such a sad thing to do, I decided to make it even more sad by alphabeticising them all). If you come across this post and have knowledge of more sayings, feel free to add them in the comments box! Thank you!
