What is that odor? Oh yeah, onions!
But shouldn’t they have had the kindness to teach him that there is a gorilla heaven?
Maybe he’ll invent a heaven for himself. If we can do it, he probably can too!
Is it bad that I recognize the first dead gorilla photo as “The Death of Marchessa” from an old National Geographic?
And why did they feel the need to teach this magnificent animal about the permanency of death? Sticks in my mind as cruel and morbid.
Oh no you onioned me again, I was completely taken in for a while, thinking WTF.
Heehee… I saw the title and immediately said to myself, “Onion.”
LOL I try to be nice to friends by letting them know I’m sending them to a spoof Onion news flash in my email or postings. It’s like Rick Rolling or getting Punk’d
Don’t worry, Bill. The gorilla was actually signing that he was hungry.
(I’m pretty sure the bunnies weren’t getting it either.)
I think all animals know they are going to “die.” Humans are the only ones who think that it’s a problem.
Yes, I feel sorry for Quigley. But by searching the logical and positive side in this video, they can understand if the reason that Humanity can be assholes and be destructive it’s, indeed, because they are afraid to die and how they cope with it.
And since animals can express freely without the society code of how you should polish or alter your reactions, it’s easier to understand him and ourselves with him.
Plus, how much of our human evolution and technology happened because we, as a species, realized that our living time is finity and wanted to leave something behind of ours to be remembered and feel that we truly lived?
Some fear death and became crippled by it. Others embrace it and “triumph”.
Many belive that Men become separted of Animal when it understood the concept of death….who knows how many species different then others could evolve like we did and bring something more to our planet.
How on earth could you call yourselves scientists when you have taught such a loving creature that death is inevitable. Can you not see just how depressed you have made poor Quigley. The worst part is that you seem so happy about all this. I am only 12, but even i understand the importance of happiness within all living creatures. How could you? Shame on every single scientist and person that supports this kind of thing. I hope you all get reported to the rspca.( thanks to Bill who seems to also feel empathy towards Quigley.)
Onion does some funny shit but this kinda made me sad when I read the remakr by a 12 year old. He/or she didn’t understand this was a joke. That being said….he/she can at least embrace the truth that humanity (in reality) does stuff far more cruel than this would have been if it were real. ..and that is a part of growing up. Learning it is a cruel and dangerous world.
