‘They’re my babies’

    May we offer Lizzie May and Justine as larger companions.


    • I think we should put Kathleen Wynne in the cage with mama gorilla. And let Kathleen try to take away her “babies” to put them in the sex-ed program. Just as a social experiment.

  • Koko is smarter than Muslim Trudeaux

  • But I thought it was natural for females to abhor pregnancy and motherhood. Don’t gorillas abort their fetuses the same way that humans do since they share about 98% of our DNA?

    I guess this poor female gorilla doesn’t realize that her maternal instincts are a result of gorilla misogyny and a patriarchal gorilla society. Someone should give her a book by Margaret Sanger.

    Hope gorilla doesn’t sit on kitties. “Good job.” If I hear that phrase one more time…

  • Ho Hum

    I am happy to see that Koko is still alive and still adopting kittens. In 1995 she made the cover of National Geographic in a feature “Koko’s Kitten” 🙂

    Is it just me, or does that gorilla look like the husband of that muslim woman who had a bag over her head during the citizenship case.
