Fuck Harambe

Post by asthmatic camel » Fri Jun 22, 2018 12:52 am

Koko The World's Most Famous Gorilla Just Passed Away.

Koko, the gorilla who showed the world that animals feel emotion just as much as humans, died in her sleep on Tuesday. She was 46 years old.

A critically endangered western lowland gorilla, she was born at the San Francisco Zoo, but moved to the Santa Cruz Mountains to work with researcher Francine Patterson when she was just 1 year old. Patterson taught Koko American Sign Language (ASL) and helped found The Gorilla Foundation, the organization that cared for Koko for most of her life.



Koko learned over 1,000 signs and understood 2,000 English words, and exhibited self-awareness by recognizing her own reflection in the mirror — and these kinds of achievements shot the gorilla to fame. She graced the cover of magazines and was featured in several documentaries. She met celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and the late Robin Williams.

In 1974, Koko even got her own kitten, All Ball, after asking her caretakers with sign language for a kitten the previous Christmas. Koko was gentle with All Ball, carrying her around like a baby and even trying to nurse her. All Ball sadly passed away, and when caretakers told Koko about the death, she began to whimper and make a hooting noise — a sign that she was grieving.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Cruel and unnecessary.

Harambe would forgive you.

A couple of irrefutable points AC:
- Harambe was stronger than you
- Harambe was better looking than you
- Harambe looked far better in fishnets than you
- Harambe could dance better than you
- Harambe had fewer vermin scuttling thru his matted fur than you
- Harambe smelled less gamey than you
- Harambe's "come hither" look was far more appealing than yours
- Harambe had closer ties to the aristocracy than you

Hmmm .... I now understand your anger.

Somebody told AC that dissing Harambe would get ed's goat.

Hey AC! That's not a literal expression you know.

All true apart from the last one. My Welsh ancestors, whose name I bear, were the governors of Denbigh and Chirk Castles. One Thomas Myddelton was Lord Mayor of London.

Harambe just can't compete.
