Okay, you know those mechanical gorillas that businesses put out in front to attract customers? And you know how sometimes they dress the gorilla up to make it more eye-catching? That can have some unfortunate consequences, in my opinion.
There is a local business that I drive by just about every day. They have a gorilla. Months ago, they added a day-glo yellow vest (the kind construction workers wear). That was fine. It was when they added the pink tutu that things got a little weird. You see, the gorilla doesn’t have any hips. The tutu started slipping down just a couple of days after it appeared. A couple of weeks ago, the tutu had arrived at a place rather low down on said gorilla, and I can’t help thinking it looks…hmm…how shall I put this? The gorilla appears to be exhibiting inappropriate behavior. It’s like it’s flashing passing traffic.
I know this shouldn’t bother me. It’s a gorilla. Gorillas don’t even wear tutus. It isn’t even an anatomically correct gorilla. It does bug me, though. Am I crazy? And no, I will not provide a picture.
