And I Didn’t Even Know The Gorillas Were Missing

I find this story funny in the way it’s presented, not in basis. First the headline:

More than 100,000 rare gorillas found in Congo

Actually it’s more like 125,000, but either way I’m not sure that finding that number of anything can allow it to still be considered “rare”. At least not anymore.

The other thing that’s humorous to me, in this day and age, when I can look on the internet at the swing set in my backyard from a satellite photo, is that anyone could not notice 125, 000 gorillas. That’s more gorillas than Springfield has people. Although Rod Blagojevich has successfully overlooked/ignored/not noticed that many Springfieldians. So I guess it is possible.
