Resting Comfortably

Koko has an owie:

Koko, the famous talking gorilla from Woodside who can communicate through sign language, had surgery for more than two hours on Sunday to heal a toothache, according to Stanford spokeswoman Sarah Sherwood.


Doctors gathered in Koko's "apartment" and crowded around the gorilla, who asked a woman wearing red to come closer. The woman politely offered Koko a business card, which the gorilla ate.

Her exact words: "Kinda chewy"...

Read the whole article; interestingly, she has a 1000-word vocabulary, which wags note is double that of our Leader. Go on, ask him to define Sovereignty...
