To this point I have not expressed any opinions about gorillas, but I feel like I can no longer remain silent. I know what I am going to say might offend some, but remember, this is just my opinion:
Growing up - I never found Grape Ape that funny.
It was one of those shows that, on the surface, sounded good. But all the ape ever said was "Grape ape." Not funny really.
In fact, now that I'm on a rant, I never found the following shows funny either:
Inch High Private Eye.
Hong Kong Phooey (well, the dog was a little bit funny).
Pink Panther, on the other hand, was consistently hilarious.
So glad I was able to get that off my chest.
As for the other ape crisis right now - Jack Hanna weighed in. Jane Goodall weighed in (frankly, I had no idea she was still alive). Everyone else weighed in.
I'm a Cincinnati Zoo Member. I've seen the gorillas.
That no doubt makes me more qualified than many of the people with opinions, but it in no way qualifies me to make any kind of public proclamation.
I'll stick to things I know.
Like Grape Ape.
