    and I'm a good gorillia.

    Has anyone seen Koko on tv? she's the gorilla that does sign language. Her signing vocab is upwards of 3000 signs, and she can make sentences and have full-on conversations.

    I saw it the other night, it's soooo neat. Gorillas are smart, man. It was funny, she introduced herself by signing "My name is Koko, I'm a good gorilla." How amazing is that?? Man! Just like babies who sign, gorillas start at about 6 months old. Well 25 years later, Koko is still signing like a fiend. I wish I had a gorilla to sign with haha

    Anyway I thought that was really really cool.
