It's all clear to me now....I'm the keeper of the cheese.  And *you're* the lemon merchant.  Get it?  ...And he *knows* it.  That's why he's going to kill us!  So we have to beat it...yeah...before he lets loose the marmosets on us!

Hehe, yeah that was the first thing I thought of, too.  Man I loved that show.

Severus Snape really wants the job, but if you let him have it, he will kill the mayor.

But privately, zoo employees said Mahon was not a strong manager and had trouble making decisions and they weren't surprised by his departure after only a few months on the job.
He also alienated staff in his first few days by going undercover and asking zookeepers questions about zoo operations without telling him who he was, sources said.


It's not that he isn't a "strong manager", I'll bet, as he was a curator at several aquariums before this gig. I read that as "The zoo employees didn't like that he actually cared about the job, and undermined him to the point of ineffectuality." I've seen it before - a group of employees who wanted manager A but got manager B undermined manager B to the point of making manager B quit. In that case, the employees did so because they wanted their "buddy", manager A, as their manager.

Sounds like someone needs to clean house at the zoo...

Or, maybe you're overly obsessed with your own private thing.  That's certainly the way it sounds to me.

Perhaps, if it was an isolated incident, but he's the third person in the job, and in a relatively short period of time. Insular groups can be hard to work with sometimes, and don't take kindly to change. 'Course, I could also be reading more into it than is actually there, but given there's little real info in the article, the fun is in the speculation.
