It’s already been three months since the untimely death of Harambe, and yet still the endless memes and jokes have not died down.

Philadelphia zoo made the mistake of announcing they will be holding a baby naming contest for their recently born gorilla. Predictably, the internet went into overdrive.
Theres gonna be a gorilla naming contest at the Philly Zoo. I am 100% sure Harambe will win, and 100% sure that the baby won't be named that

The internet is on fire because the Philly Zoo is having the public name a new baby gorilla. Shouts of Harambe are heard on the streets.

They were bombarded with Harambe requests so much that they had to remind people that they will hold the competition using pre-selected names.
Thank you for your support. Once we have chosen names for the baby gorilla, we will let you know so you can cast your vote!

That’s right – calm down internet. As if these guys would be stupid enough to let you name their beautiful baby gorilla. We don’t need another Boaty McBoatface on our hands.
