Get your feet wet

A thousand words of YAYYY!!!

I don’t know what’s better — the news that researchers found an enormous population of western lowland gorillas in Congo previously believed to have been critically endangered, or this accompanying New York Times photo:

I mean, how ridiculously awesome is that baby gorilla? She’s all, “That’s right, bitches, we’re back! And check these chest-thump skillz!”

That picture makes me happier than bears on unicycles handing out free martinis. And that’s a WHOLE LOTTA HAPPY.

    That IS one ridiculously awesome baby gorilla! I think it’s channeling Freddy Mercury. “We are the champions, we are the champions…”

    That may be the happiest baby gorilla EVER.

    I almost wish they just said “Hey we found some lowland gorillas… Where , you ask? Oh, just some where in Africa… no where in particular, just – you know – around”… cuz I don’t trust them poachers.
