Oh Internet, how we loathe you sometimes.

Millions were disappointed after gullibly falling for an fake story indicating that "Harambe McHarambeface" won the naming contest for a baby gorilla at a Chinese zoo.

It all started when the crap-tacular Daily Mirror--who never checks the legitimacy of their sources--decided to pick up the story. The "source" was the fictitional "Boston Leader" news website, and the internet ran with it from there:






The truth quickly came out and hearts were broken everywhere...





...and though we might not have a Harambe McHarambeface YET, you can still show your support and buy your "McHarambeface" t-shirt here:

Chvrches dedicated their song "Under the Tide" to Harambe while a Red Sox fan ran on the field in a "Harambe 69 Jersey" at Fenway Park on Sunday night:

Done in loving memory of Harambe #RIP

Not to be outdone though, an awesome Cincinnati school has made Harambe their new mascot for the football team, and decided to dance and drag a kid around during a game to celebrate "Harambe style" in front of a ton of soccer moms to glorious extent:



I don't know who made the final decision on this one--in the town that Harambe died in--but these kids kick serious ass for going this far!




Never change, you crazy gorilla-loving bastards. Never change.

The Cincinnati Zoo is trying to put the drama of Harambe behind them by asking the Internet to "Stop making memes of our dead gorilla."

So, in honor of the "retirement" of the Harambe Meme, here are some of our favorites:













The zoo might "not be amused," but we sure as hell are! RIP Harambe.

Harambe, the magical ape who touched our fuzzy hearts now has a petition to name the Cincinnati Bengals after him. I can't think of a better way to kick Tom Brady's ass than by a band of gorillas.



There is already a petition to rename Humboldt Park after him, so we'll see if Cincinnati can get their sh*t together and honor this fine creature of nature.

Bristol gorilla flips off photographer.

Residents at the Bristol Zoo can get a little touchy about their privacy.

One local man found that out the hard way when he visited the attraction and began snapping photos of a gorilla minding its own business.

Bob Pitchford, 67, was on a visit to the city's zoo last week when he spotted the large ape chewing on some grass. He took his camera out to take a photo but when the the mammal caught sight of Mr Pritchard he swiftly made the rude gesture.



The gorilla obviously didn't take too kindly to the interruption in its regular grass chewing time and showed his displeasure apparently in the only way it knew how — by flicking the photographer off.

The unnamed flipper of the bird must not have made his point too clear, however, because Pitchford said he didn't even realize he had received the offense until he came home and reviewed the pictures.

'When I saw the pictures, I just thought "you little devil",' he added. 'He really does look a bit cheese off. 'I quite regularly photograph the animals at Bristol, but I've never seen anything like this. 'Gorillas are really good at expressing their feelings. I was just really lucky to capture this.'



This isn't the first documented time we've seen such fierce expression from apes, who also can be well versed in physical communication.





Is this a terrifying image of things to come?

Two full days of competition are in the books at the Olympics, and if you're like Mario at gloveandboots, you're already feeling a bit overwhelmed. Fafa, on the other hand, loves the Games and offers opinions on how to make them even better in the future. As usual, Gorilla is pretty "meh" about the whole thing.
