Patrick the Gorilla is cranky. He is not treating other of his kind very kindly, even sneering at them and, on one occasion, he bit a female with whom he was to have sexual intercourse. I actually witnessed this behavior once in a bar in Boston, just outside the Navy Yard.
Zookeepers in Dallas, Texas, are sending Patrick to a gorilla therapist and time-out sessions at the Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens in South Carolina. I am thinking that if Patrick Gorilla is cranky now, in Dallas, just wait until hominy grits show up on his breakfast tray.
Several years ago, Patrick’s best friend Jabari escaped captivity and went on a rampage. Dallas police shot Jabari dead after he injured three people —proving once more that Texans have no sense of humor.
Since Jabari’s untimely demise, Patrick has had a very poor attitude. Still, one wonders why Zoo officials are sending Patrick halfway across the United States; why not offer him psychotherapy in the Dallas area? Maybe there is something more going on—something Dallas Zookeepers are not willing to reveal to the public.
Is Patrick gay?
There must be something seriously wrong with us —as a people. Patrick is an animal. I have seen numerous films of gorillas in the wild, and they all seem very cranky to me. Who cares if he sneers at other gorillas? Who cares if he bit a female gorilla? Maybe she is in to biting …
With starving citizens, Mohammedans running amok, Obama Care on the horizon, three and a half more years of an Obama presidency … why are we wasting resources rehabilitating a gorilla?
