Let me just start this blog by saying this has got to be the funniest shit I’ve ever seen, and I think what makes it even funnier is the number of people who are freaking the fuck out about this smoking orangutan.
Growing outrage after a zoo visitor tossed a lit cigarette into an orangutan enclosure, prompting the ape to pick it up and smoke it. More than 1M people signed a petition to shut down the zoo after the incident. The zoo says it regrets that it happened. https://t.co/nxWlMGDFg5 pic.twitter.com/2yBvbZeux8

First of all, my man Ozon right here isn’t just puffing this cig, he’s straight up chuffing this dart like it’s 2 in the morning outside the bar and his Uber just canceled on him. Ozon’s cranking a hoon like he’s outside of H&R Block and they just told him he wasn’t getting any money back on his taxes. This legend is enjoying a casual afternoon heater like he’s waiting outside of his office and contemplating strangling his boss. Ozon’s stressed the fuck out, and clearly whoever tossed him a cig was only trying to help him relax.
On the other hand, we’ve got animal rights activists who are absolutely flipping their shit about this, people signing petitions left and right to shut the zoo down, and meanwhile, the staff at the Zoo just shrugged their shoulders and was like “meh, this is regrettable”. Christ. Apparently, Indonesia’s got one of the highest smoking rates on earth, and this isn’t even the first time Indonesian zoos have been in the spotlight for having a smoking animal on the premises. There’s even a sign that says not to give cigarettes to the animals.
