“I went to a zoo and it had only one animal—a dog. It was a Shih Tzu”

"I went to a zoo the other day and it had only one animal—a dog. It was a Shih Tzu (shit zoo)” is a popular joke that has been printed on many images. The joke has been cited in print since at least November 2005.


Wikipedia: Shih Tzu
A Shih Tzu (English: /ˈʃiːtsuː/; Chinese: 西施犬; pinyin: xīshī quǎn), also known as the Chrysanthemum Dog, is a toy dog breed, weighing 10–19 pounds (4.5–8.6kg) when fully grown. The exact origins of the breed are unknown, but it is thought to have originated in Tibet and then been developed in China.

It is indeed possibly the poorest pun of the week, but I did hear this one earlier on, and feel the need to share it:

Did you hear about the zoo that had only one animal, which, to make matters worse, was just a dog.

Apparently, it was a shitzu.
