They say that an 800-pound gorilla can sit anywhere he wants. But when he's got a toothache, there's only one place he can go — into the dentist's chair.
Oscar Jonsey, a 30-year-old lowlands gorilla from the San Francisco Zoo, was knocked out while two dentists performed a three-hour procedure to save an abscessed tooth.
This was the second trip to the dentist's office in the past year for the ailing ape, also known as O.J.
Last year poor O.J. had to get a root canal too.
The silverback gorilla was anesthetized in his pen and brought to the zoo's veterinary hospital where dentist Dan Mairani and endodontist Steve Holifield, who usually handle humans, treated O.J.'s canine tooth.
Good for her for speaking up! It truly is absolutely deplorable!
Debbie Reynolds is reportedly none too pleased to hear that news that her friend, Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt is attempting to a have a baby for the couple via surrogate, and spoke out against him via her weekly column in The Globe!
"Just when you think Prince Frederick has run out of tricks, he comes up with another one. This idea is ludicrous. Zsa Zsa already has a daughter who loves her. Having a baby around the house is beyond bizarre. Zsa Zsa has been through so much (and) she isn't able to fight his wacky publicity stunts… She still deserves some privacy and peace."
It's already despicable enough that he's used her ailing health as a means for publicity for this long, how DARE he even think about involving a CHILD into that?!
We seriously hope that this nonsense goes no further, and he'll quite frankly STFU and let Zsa Zsa be!
