Goin' Bananas

We ladies here in the good ol' USA go bananas over Magic Mike, but the chicks in Japan have gone absolutely ape shit over this gorilla named Shabani makin' him the hottest heartthrob to hit Asia since, well, I guess there ain't any Asian heartthrobs so that's why they are so crazy for a damn hairy primate. Shabani, who lives in Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Nagoya, has attracted a large number of female admirers who visit him because he is so "handsome". His adoring Twitter followers call him "ikeman", which means a good looking man. And, you can see why:
Channeling his inner Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Just look at that sly devil.
The Thinker.
Beefcake baby!

  4. As long as he doesn't start flinging poop at the ladies. Maybe a few of them would like that. I hope not.

    1. I read that the Japanese are into fads. Maybe poop flinging could be a new fad.

    1. I'm sure the Japanese ladies and the female gorillas would beg to differ. LOL

  6. I saw this on TV. I believe they said he already has two (gorilla) wives, and he takes good care of both of them. He's living the dream, baby. Living the dream.

  7. We sure he's not really a man in an ape suit?

  8. Sure, he's handsome, but does anyone care about the gorilla on the inside? Zoogoers can be so superficial. It's almost like he's just there to be looked at for their amusement.

  13. This is too funny and weird. While he is more studly than any man I've dated or mated with, I imagine he hogs the sheets.

  14. That last one is too much, and I believe you about the swear word comment you left.

    1. After I laughed for a full five minutes about the swearing comment, I thought damn, I need to clean up my act. Yes, I wonder if this gorilla took posing lessons from Magic Mike?
