Gorilla does something lovable once again, briefly redeeming inhumanity of zoo  »

There is nothing cuter than an animal being adorable with a tech gadget. When I was still running a menagerie out of my room I was always trying to get my hamsters and guinea pigs to take interest in the newest Game Boy advance offerings or to help me with the buttons of the first-generation DS Lite. Unfortunately, they were not into it, and preferred to urinate all over my lap instead of trying to assist me with daring princess-rescues and magical planet-saving. Selfish bastards!
Fortunately, I now know that next time I want an awesome animal to play with, I should count on a Gorilla. Because Gorillas will get down on some Tetris.
Check out these pictures (and this short video!) of Bawang, a Gorilla at the San Francisco Zoo playing with a DSi XL that some kid dropped into its cage. The article says Bawang eventually lost interest in the game, but I assure you that’s only because she has good taste, and recognizes that the DSi XL is a clunky, oversized, and fairly useless upgrade. If that kid had dropped a DSi into the enclosure, he would have had to wrestle his system from Bawang’s and her (adopted) daughter son Hasani’s clutches.

Dude. You guys, The San Francisco Zoo, one of the official Worst Places on Earth, is having a special Valentine’s Day event, Woo at the Zoo. Apparently you learn about animals doing it/possibly watch them doing it and then feast on sausages and beef tenderloin. Makes sense. I love to munch on dead pig while learning about gorilla penises! GOOD TIMES!
Filing this one under, “the world is fucked”.
