    Video: Scientists teach a gorilla it will die

    This is possibly the saddest thing I've ever seen

    Pash, you know this is a joke, right? It's from The Onion, a satire newspaper and website. Funny but twisted. It would be very sad if true.

    Good God, why does an animal need to understand about mortality and cruel fate? Way to take a content creature and harsh his buzz entirely. I don't see the need; this is cruel. Inflicting panic attacks is cruelty.

    The next step in the experiment is getting the gorilla to write a will. Otherwise his family will fight over that sweet yellow blanket about five minutes after he dies.

    There is nothing funny about this sad excuse for humor.

    The onion usually has some really good stuff. This one I agree was a bit extreme because some people didn't realize it was a joke. Usually you can tell its a joke right away.

    I thought it was funny, even tough like you, I'm affected more seeing the animal commercials than the people ones.

    I thought you might have posted it as an April Fools.
