ThisNthat Quickbits: Are We Bananas or Is This One Handsome Gorilla? (Photos & Video)

They call me "Shabani." What's your name sugar?
They call me “Shabani.” What’s your name sugar?

*Hey, we gotta give credit where its due. And who says human males are the only species and sex that can be called fine.

Well they lied.

Take Shabani the gorilla. Japanese women are said to be getting to the zoo to see him by any means necessary.

And its not like he doesn’t realize he’s got their attention. Just look at the photos. After a while he just starts posing for them.

Talk about being ready for your close-up.

The recently discovered “sex symbol?” (their words, not mine) has actually been living at the Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Japan since 2007. But I guess it was only recently that he began to grow into his looks.

Apparently, he’s feelin’ himself too, at least from the looks of the photos and video below. Continue reading

*Well damn. Though a multitudinous number of us have been praying for relief from the whole Caitlyn Jenner transition, now we’re being overwhelmed with what has become the new circus in town:

The racial identity issue surrounding one Rachel Dolezal.

At the time of this writing, I have not watched any of the television interviews with Ms. Dolezal.

And quite frankly, I don’t plan to.

I am not here to analyze this woman; or bring up what she did in her past or why she did it.

I am here to address the circus it has become. And disagree with how she is being vilified, as if she were a criminal.

She’s not a criminal. She did nothing that she could be put in jail for, to my understanding.

No doubt many of us were surprised to learn about the switch-a-roo of a Caucasian woman actually passing for African American, Black. After all, if we’re being honest with ourselves, the first question that came to mind was… why would she want to do that?  Continue reading

*As an animal lover I have one thing to admit…

I’m so jealous.

At first this looks like its going to be a bloodbath; as a huge lioness appears to lunge towards a defenseless man who may be opening the gate to feed her.

But after a second, once you take your hands away from your eyes, you realize its a wild animal showing love to an old friend in a very tame way we never expected to see. Continue reading

Dario Ferrari and his 280-lb catch

Dario Ferrari won’t tell us exactly where in Italy’s Po River he caught this gigantic catfish, but he does say it took him and his companions about 40 minutes, a boatload of strength and tons of patience to reel it in.

But don’t worry, after taking a few photos and videos of his prize catch he released it back into the river!

Amazingly enough, Ferrari’s fish isn’t the world’s largest catfish, that fish was captured in 2010 and it weighed 298 pounds.

*MeBai the baby elephant was torn away from her mother three years ago, and recently had a very passionate reunion with her.

The baby elephant was thrown into a life of slavery in Thailand, but thank goodness she was rescued when a team from Elephant Nature Park arranged for the meeting between her and her mother.

Baby elephants are said to be emotionally dependent, so you can imagine this little baby elephant going through years of depression.

ThisNthat Quickbits: Ever Hear a Cat Say ‘No!’ to a Bath…You Have Now (Watch)


Awww boo, trust me. It ain’t that serious.

This is just something you’ve got to do. But “Tigger” the cat says ‘Talk to the paw!’ ’cause he’s not happy about getting the bathtub.

This video from 2010 shows Tigger the cat’s very vocal reaction to bath time. His howling actually sounds like he’s saying “no!”

But his owner is quite used to his protests, and insists on giving Tigger a really needed bath.

“I decided to give him the bath on this day because he came in with a couple [of] car oil stains on his back which he was unable to clean himself, nor would it have been healthy for him to lick the chemicals off,” she wrote in the video’s YouTube description.

Sometimes, little buddy, we just gotta do what we gotta do.

Watch the video of Tigger’s huge disagreement with a certain bathtub directly below.
