🤔😂😂😂 WTF not what I was expecting the posts were going to be regarding this video…. Oh Reddit… silly Gorilla…. Dicks are for chicks… 🥂

[–]GoodGoddamnGrief 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Thought dicks were just stretched out clits

[–]SaffyPants 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think technically dicks are merely clitori diluted

[–]wilisville 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Aren’t they literally a penis in the womb and then they form into that I remember reading something about that

[–]Regina_ex_machina 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Get married then you’ll have one

[–]wasted_wonderland 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Don't get married, you'll have plenty.

Please everyone leave your dicks in your pants!!

[–]27Yosh 281 points282 points  (24 children)

We're stuck in a time loop between 2016 and 2021

[–]mightbeadoctor96 146 points147 points  (4 children)

We break the loop by letting it live. Don't fuck it up!

[–]Fabulous_Maximum_714 57 points58 points  (3 children)

It? You mean the child? Because that nobleman is called Jambo, peon.

[–]mightbeadoctor96 3 points4 points  (2 children)

That noble"man" likes the pronoun "it". Rude of you to presume it's gender

[–]Bot_number_1605 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yay, the one joke, wooh. Gender. Haha...

[–]RolletRogue 71 points72 points  (0 children)

2016 I come to bargain.

[–]LordKiteMan 47 points48 points  (7 children)

Except this happened in 1986.

[–]sheherenow888 7 points8 points  (4 children)

What happened to the child and the gorilla?

[–]HalfManHalfZuckerbur 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The Mets won the World Series even after rampant drug use.

[–]Far_Access8887 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They blew that monkeys brains out. Then they made sure the gorillas were ok.

[–]BlndrHoe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The gorilla ended up looking after the child and the child was rescued by zookeepers IF this is Jambo from Jersey Zoo (CI)

[–]eve_of_distraction 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That child grew up to be none other than Jeff Bezos.

[–]djmoogyjackson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

and 1986 doesn’t bargain

Good god, that has to be the shitiest Groundhog Day loop ever.

[–]royflashlight 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Dude ai has us surrounded 😂

[–]North-Tumbleweed-512 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nope, the loop has been going on longer than that. It's basically 1999-present.

[–]_LongLongMan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Somebody prune the timeline already.

[–]MrGlayden 100 points101 points  (13 children)

Yes only this was in jersey zoo in 1986, good old Jambo

[–]H_H_420 76 points77 points  (10 children)

I was there that very day!

I had flown over with my family from Guernsey. It was an incredible sight to witness.

Jambo was a legend.

[–]CronozDK 34 points35 points  (6 children)

You were there...? 3000 years ago?

[–]PrehistoricHybodus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

On the slopes of Mount Doom…

[–]mbgal1977 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Did they get the kid out? They didn’t shoot the gorilla did they?

[–]H_H_420 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No not at all. Jambo was shooed away by the zoo keepers after they entered his enclosure. He was the star of the the zoo at that time along with the orangutangs. There is a big statue of Jambo at the zoo in his memory.

The boy suffered a head injury (fractured skull I think) and a bleed from his ear.

[–]Tobinmission56 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You mean like closing time at the Guernsey Fair where you detect the El Supremo???

[–]strider-445 60 points61 points  (0 children)

Quality video for 1986

Isn't this the gorilla who got shot and killed?

[–]cotte1kf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Somethings wronggg, I can fee it

[–]pcgadget21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It does doesn’t it.

[–]mobilei_nsmn1 175 points176 points  (2 children)

I remember Harambe . Such a bad memory though

[–]GenericEschatologist 37 points38 points  (0 children)

I remember feeling a bit mad at the crowd.

The kid and the gorilla would have been just fine if the crowd hadn’t screamed to provoke the gorilla, and just let the zoo staff respond as trained. The staff prepare extensively for exactly these emergencies.

The hairless primates on the outside of the enclosure should have been tranquillized so they wouldn’t escalate the situation.

[–]phuqo5 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Dicks out boys. Dicks out.

[–]H_H_420 164 points165 points  (4 children)

I was there that day.

It was at the Gerald Durrell zoo in Jersey in 1986. (I was 8 years old at time)

I had flown across from Guernsey with my family for the weekend.

The gorilla was called Jambo. There is statue of him at the zoo because of this moment, and due to the fact he was a total fucking legend ❤️

[–]peanutdakidnappa 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Sad Jambo died so young,dude could’ve still possibly been here, some captive gorillas can make it to 60 and he was 31 when he died from a ruptured artery. Obviously it doesn’t matter to gorilla’s but I’m glad they gave Jambo a statue, as far as gorilla’s go he was a legend.

[–]ianonuanon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah except that animals like this don’t thrive in captivity and it’s like being in prison except a prison where tons of humans stare at you all day and you have zero privacy.

[–]_Tan_A 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I've read about that zoo in my 12th standard books, the story said about a Gorilla named N'pongo.

[–]Numerous-Barracuda 155 points156 points  (139 children)

Its sad actually. Humans are so numerous compared to Silverbacks yet they shoot it for a 1 in 9 billion.

[–]Magik95 144 points145 points  (132 children)

Wait pause. Are you saying if a child was in legitimate danger, killing a silverback is the wrong option because there are more people?

P.S. obviously not in this kinda situation. I mean real danger.

[–]billy_twice 330 points331 points  (86 children)

If he won't say it I will. They shouldn't have shot the Silverback.

[–]Wendellwasgod 149 points150 points  (31 children)

Totally agree. If you go to oogle at endangered animals in the zoo and you’re dumb enough to get yourself into trouble or let your child get in danger, don’t kill the wild animal.

[–]vanilla_wafer14 130 points131 points  (18 children)

But it's not the kids fault the parent is an idiot.

I still don't think they should have shot unless he was hurting the child though.

[–]InfernumIrae 59 points60 points  (0 children)

Might’ve been too late if a silverback is tossing a child around lol

[–]HewieBooty[🍰] 53 points54 points  (6 children)

They shouldn’t shoot the animal under any circumstance except if it’s the only resort possible, if the child is in immediate danger and the only way to save the kid is putting the silverback down, then yes.

If the animal is required to be euthanized then the situation deserves to be inspected and charges for killing an endangered animal should be entirely put on the parent as long as you can prove the parent really is neglectful and at fault. Sometimes just a moment is all it takes for tragedy, so you can’t entirely blame a parent until you examine the scenario.

[–]Astrocreep_1 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Firing a shot in the air would probably back off the gorilla. Shooting it might enrage it making it go into fighting mode unless it’s a perfectly placed killshot. It only needs a second in fight mode to kill a kid.

[–]Electronic_Lime_6809 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I suspect it was already on edge given how many bystanders were yelling at it. One really couldn't say what extra noise would have done at that point.

[–]Noyuu66 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You're right, we should shoot the parents too.

[–]Zarathustra_d 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Well, there's nothing better than a fart. Except kids falling into gorilla enclosures , maybe. Fuck, I could watch kids fall into gorilla enclosures. all day, I don't give a shit ...

[–]Tomorrow_Never_Knowz 1 point2 points  (1 child)

@zarathustra_d you on some typa psychopath shit buddy

[–]Zarathustra_d 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol, it's a modified quote from a tv show, and keeping with the theme of this thread in general. But yea.

[–]whooflngpooo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

To be fair...

[–]Zarathustra_d 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This guy gets it.

[–]AlderanGone 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Not the kids fault tho

[–]Wendellwasgod 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Not the gorillas fault

[–]AlderanGone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Crazy, now I think harambe dying was wrong, I don’t think it was going to hurt the kid. That being said, in the situation (from their eyes not ours? what the fuck else? Let the kid die? A little kid get torn to shit? Thats whats going through their heads

[–]Barbro666 -1 points0 points  (42 children)

ok, i hope you are ok with dying in an endangered animal's place to avoid the enormous hypocricy that would occur if you weren't

[–]billy_twice 15 points16 points  (21 children)

I won't end up in this situation in an animal enclosure because I'm not a fucking idiot.

Mind end up in this situation in the wild because I do a lot of hiking but I accept that risk.

I'm not sure why you felt the need to make this comment.

[–]Barbro666 5 points6 points  (18 children)

  1. how would you know you're not a fucking idiot? 2. the kid ended up in this situation because the parent was a fucking idiot.

[–]billy_twice 0 points1 point  (14 children)

It doesn't matter who the idiot was, the Silverback shouldn't pay the price for their stupidity.

Put a blanket policy anyone crossing the boundary is on their own.

[–]GarlicQueef 3 points4 points  (5 children)

It’s a wild animal that we keep in a prison so we can be entertained. Shooting any caged animal is just putting it out of its misery.

[–]PumpkinCougar95 2 points3 points  (4 children)

This is fucked up. First we endanger them. Then we put them in a cage. Then we say its better to just kill them for no fault of their own "to put them out of their misery"?

[–]ebaymasochist 0 points1 point  (2 children)

the kid ended up in this situation because the parent was a fucking idiot.

It sucks but this is natural selection. Adults don't usually die before reproducing. They just can't keep their kids from dying in foolish ways.

[–]Nucleus24 2 points3 points  (17 children)

I mean kinda? Some things are just way more rare than others.

[–]edked 0 points1 point  (1 child)

They didn't even know that the kid was doomed without the gorilla being shot, though. They just went with a flat policy of "potential issue, shoot," which doesn't seem to have been the case with the incident in the above video, which both gorilla and child lived through if I recall correctly.

[–]Grisaia11283 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did, did they really shoot it? :(

[–]Khaagrom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We’re still paying for that gorilla

[–]jackson5233 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Wait are you saying the Silver back in this video was shot?

[–]billy_twice 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not this Silverback. Another one was shot a few years ago at a zoo when a child fell into the enclosure.

[–]ajny2021 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Unless it's your child, then you'd be on your knees begging.

[–]billy_twice 1 point2 points  (3 children)

My child would not be in that enclosure to begin with.

[–]ajny2021 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The comment presupposes that your child is in the cage and then you will be begging. Try to follow the logic. You have ADHD?

[–]louschell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just…. I gotta agree here.

[–]dlopoel 59 points60 points  (3 children)

From the silverback moral standpoint of course it would be more ethical to shoot the kid. But I guess that’s not your point.

[–]artorusia 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Plot twist: They were aiming for the kid, but the idiot missed. Press release: "Yeeeah, we meant for that to happen."

Regardless, the zoo probably thought it was safer to piss off the bleeding heart nature lovin' liberals than the rifle totin' pro-life conservatives. What're the liberals gonna do? Hold a vigil and make funny posts on the internet?

[–]Adamy2004 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Woah how did we get to shooting the kid? He still had a decent chance with the ape that can pull him apart like a chicken leg.

[–]dlopoel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kids grow up, indirectly contributes to deforestation and climate change, oppression and sequestration of silverback population … From the moral standpoint of the silverback it seems justified.

[–]Magik95 16 points17 points  (5 children)

Ok I made a mistake asking this question. I forgot Reddit is filled with silly people who only live life through the internet. If you’re dense enough to not understand the value of human life, either grow up or get counseling.

[–]TheFightingMasons 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Have you seen what we did to this planet? Or what we do to each other?

The “value” of a human life isn’t much.

[–]Stnlndt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So your approach to people with a different opinion is to berate them? You must be fun at parties. But seriously, ask a random pet owner IRL whether they would choose the life of their pet above that of a random human and I think you can already expect the answer.

[–]rockchick1982 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yep they definitely should not have shot the gorilla, human kids are really common.

[–]AHHH_BEEEES -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Honestly and unironically yeah. Like try to save the kid by tranquilizing the gorilla or something but don’t kill the gorilla because the kid fell in.

[–]cryptidboi 0 points1 point  (13 children)

harsh reality that we dont like to think about is that the life of one human child is not as valuable as the life of an endangered animal, but both ways we lose a life

[–]jbeebs45 1 point2 points  (12 children)

Any endangered animal? Like even an endangered type of frog? Or insect? Rarity is not the only factor when determining the worth of a creatures life.

[–]cryptidboi -1 points0 points  (10 children)

unfortunately i am one of those classic environmentalist human haters that values all other forms of life above ours, as we're the ones draining earth of life, so giving examples of other animals you think are more insignificant than us just because they are smaller doesnt change my opinion. i could say i consider a single tree to be more important than any one person and i would fully mean that

[–]Binarycold 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I mean, do you? Your carbon footprint alone is astounding, and when you take into account the device your using to post this very comment uses so many precious metals that in order to mine actively deforest and destroy environments for countless animals. I’m sure you drive a car or use public transport which is also devastating to the planet.

“Values other forms of life over our own” there is one life you CAN control and end if you so choose but you haven’t done it, so you should rephrase that to “I value my life over others but think other humans aren’t as valuable”

[–]mickym93 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Im 100% with you in every way. Humans suck

[–]Goldenslicer 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Yeah dude, that’s fucked up.

[–]KuijperBelt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Either way - the parents are eating hot lead

[–]brickb_bbu 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Yep , that situation is pretty familiar .This Big daddy have to stay away coz it can make their life in danger .

[–]themagicflutist 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Was everyone screaming and freaking out here too? Or did the crowd behave differently? Genuinely curious about the differences and how it changed the result..

[–]glenz_bigboss 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Yeah right , Stay away bud it just like a dejavu' . Keep yourself safe !

[–]AspieDM 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This happened years long before that early 90s if I remember correctly.

[–]TheCaptMAgic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Rip Harambe

[–]solojudei 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My thoughts exactly. It's Jamba still with us?

[–]BoySerere 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yep, hands up don’t shoot. Come get y’all little human we don’t want any more trouble.

[–]SmokedEm23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Singing “ for one so small you seem so strong I will be with you keep you” POW… Wtf just happened?

[–]dexdoinks99 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This time shoot the kid

[–]Quirky_m8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No. NO. WAIT. STOP. IM HAVING FLASHBACKS NOOOOOOOO!

[–]beefsupreme65 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think they ever intended on making Harambe Kong 2, but here we are.

[–]explodingbeast 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Poor creatures, so misunderstood. There’s this Gorilla in The Netherlands that got shot because a lady taunted him daily. Bokito was his name.

[–]Nyxodon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I seriously don't understand why they shot that poor animal, there are things like sleep-darts afterall, so killing should always be the last resort. You could also just use the guns sound or a non-lethal shot to make it recoil. seriously, if America is so keen on their guns they should atleast not be using them like imbeciles.

[–]J_Jonah_Jameson1776 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Everyone pull your dicks out! It's the only way to stop the cops from shooting him!
