Example of Spoof Text in Funny Story "The Zoo Job"

Posted by Memahami Teks Bahasa Inggris on 08 March 2009

This text "The zoo Job" is best categorized as a spoof text. Why? Let's find the answer. A text with generic structure Orientation, Events, and Twist is called SPOOF TEXT in English genres. Contoh text spoof pasti di akhiri dengan sebuah peristiwa atau plot cerita yang tak terduga bagi pembaca. Hal yang tak teduga inilah yang kita namakan dengan twist dalam sebuah text spoof. Now let's the following example of spoof text!
The Zoo Job Story
Contoh spoof text-the zoo job
Apa sebenarnya yang terjadi di kebun binatang?
One day a clown was visiting the zoo and attempted to earn some money by making a street performance. He acted and mimed perfectly some animal acts. As soon as he started to drive a crowd, a zoo keeper grabbed him and dragged him into his office. The zoo keeper explained to the clown that the zoo's most popular gorilla had died suddenly and the keeper was fear that attendance at the zoo would fall off. So he offered the clown a job to dress up as the gorilla until the zoo could get another one. The clown accepted this great opportunity.
So the next morning the clown put on the gorilla suit and entered the cage before the crowd came. He felt that it was a great job. He could sleep all he wanted, played and made fun of people and he drove bigger crowds than he ever did as a clown. He pretended the gorilla successfully.
However, eventually the crowds were tired of him for just swinging on tires. He began to notice that the people were paying more attention to the lion in the next cage. Not wanting to lose the attention of his audience, he decided to make a spectacular performance. He climbed to the top of his cage, crawled across a partition, and dangled from the top to the lion's cage. Of course, this made the lion furious, but the crowd people loved it.
At the end of the day the zoo keeper came and gave him a raise for being such a good attraction. Well, this went on for some time, he kept taunting the lion, the audience crowd grew a larger, and his salary kept going up. Then one terrible day happened. When he was dangling over the furious lion, he slipped and fell into the lion cage. The clown was really in big terrible situation. He was terrified.
Sooner the lion gathered itself and prepared to pounce. The clown was so scared. He could do nothing and he began to run round and round the cage with the lion close and closer behind. Finally, the lion could catch him. The clown started screaming and yelling, "Help me, help me!", but the lion was quick and pounces. The clown soon found himself flat on his back looking up at the angry lion and suddenly he heard a voice from the lion’s mouth;"Shut up you idiot! Do you want to get us both fired?".

Menarik sekali bukan membaca contoh text spoof bahasa Inggris? disamping kita bisa belajar bahasa Inggris itu sendiri, kita juga bisa merasa senang, tersenyum, sekaligus merasa terkeco dengan keahlian penulis memilih plot cerita nya That is the power of twis in any spoof texts.

  30. @serli. thank for ur visit. This understanding types of text ties to help getting understanding on text genres, including spoof. Spoof text is commonly known as funny story. However the funny thing is not the main element of spoof text. The funny thing inside the spoof is just a result of the unpredictable ending plot of the story. This then we call TWIST.

  38. I find most posts are republished in several blogs, but I can not find the link source. It is not good idea to copy paste the post without putting the source link.
    So if you can add the link source, be free to copy and paste these posts about English text types

    ReplyDelete
  39. Info saja, saya mendapati contoh text narrative dll nya banyak kesamaan di blog lain, kayaknya emang kopi paste

  53. All, nice to see that this "handout to learn English text types" can help yo completing your school assignment. However this post just takes place as first view of what and how a spoof text is. Further we have to encourage ourselves to make and write our own text in any kinds "spoof, narrative, hortatory, descriptive, news item and review"
    It will be very exciting if you come by and bring further discussion to make better understanding of English text especially spoof text. Thank

  73. @Galang, I like this spoof text best. It much represents what we see in our daily life. What seems real, sometime it is fake. However the way this spoof text brings the story is absolutely twisting, unpredictably ends the story.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm sorry, but this blog still focuses on what and how text types in English look like. Further it would be best to provide with typical question following the text. However the questions which follow the text are typically main idea, detail information, implied information, synonym, antonym, and contextual reference

    ReplyDelete
  80. trying to help answering the topic of the narrative story text. It seem the text is about the zoo job hehhe. Am I right? Sorry if I miss the point
