“Peaches, the gorilla, escaped from the zoo. When they got her back, she was an ape re-caught”

"Apricot” sounds a bit like “ape re-caught.” A pun was posted on Reddit—Dad Jokes on July 8, 2017:

“Have you heard about the gorilla who got a name change? Peaches the gorilla escaped from the zoo, but when they got him back they had to change it because it turns out he had become an Ape Re-caught.”

Peaches, the gorilla, escaped from the zoo.
When they got her back, they had to change her name because she had become an ape re-caught.
