"On April 1, 1946, @nytimes reported the @bronxzoo wouldn't be taking any phone calls. #AprilFools Day was the "silliest and most troublesome day of the Bronx Zoo's whole year." The zoo said the 1st of April "always brings telephone inquires for the Messrs. Behr, Wolfe, Lyons, Fox, Fisch, Campbell, Seal and Byrd, and 'Miss Ellie Fant.'" This image, which accompanied the 1946 article, warned in its caption, "be on the lookout for the wallet with the string attached." The @nytimes staff photographer Ernie Sisto took this photo of 2 @ringlingbros clowns that same year. #tbt" By nytimes on Instagram.
