The Internet's Hottest New Meme Is This Gorilla 'Giving A TED Talk'

Twitter got wild.

Surely because we are all still collectively mourning Harambe, gorilla memes have dominated the World Wide Web lately.

Luckily, others had their own thoughts about this loquacious ape and ran with it. Here are some of favorites:

Gorillas are truly a gift, y’all.
