Insert every Animal Farm reference you can think of. Go ahead, just dump em here. Because they’re appropriate for this story, via SCMP:
The Yangcheng Evening News recently stumbled upon Guangzhou Zoo’s entrance exam and found a section of it aimed at evaluating applicants’ “mastery” of Marxist-Leninist thought.
This means the 15 zookeepers being recruited at the government-run zoo need to be proficient at preparing animal feed, inspecting manure as well as understanding the theories of labour value and human nature.
A zookeeper with a nursing degree, sure; gotta make sure they have compassion. A sociology degree, even better; humans at zoos can be as animalistic as the creatures they’re there to see. Marxist-Leninist? To repress the rising of the pigs? Keep em on their literal fours?
According to the article, the exam includes an interview and a written exam which tests applicants on “cultural and historical knowledge, parks and zoo-related knowledge and the philosophy and principles of Marxism”. It was commissioned by Guangzhou’s Municipal Bureau of Human Resources.
