    So my parents called me about an hour ago to say that they are at the Kansas City Zoo and were evacuated because a gorilla escaped its enclosure just as they were heading that direction.

    I gave them advice on dealing with gorillas that I learned from Congo. They can thank me later.

    Is it with a chimpanzee that looks strangely like Andy Serkis?

    My parents said they were heading past the elephant exhibit and could hear zoo docents walking around behind it calling out for the gorilla. No word on whether they have employed a talking gorilla as a liason yet.

    Better catch it before it gets ahold of a horse.

    Same thing happened here in Dallas a few years back and they shot the poor thing after it attacked a mom and baby. Just how poorly designed are these enclosures anyway?

    Now it turns out it was two gorillas, both silverbacks... No word on if they've caught them yet.

    This sounds like a terrible plot for a new Kevin James movie.

    A full grown gorilla can bench press 1,400 pounds. To hell with trying to pepper spray it from 5 feet away.

    I heard if you put your brain into a robot body, you'd have the strength of five gorillas.

    A gorilla escaped in my city and I had no idea. I don't pay enough attention to local news, it seems.
