Boy you must be really sick to be doing a giant blowup doll on the roof.

Responsible owners of inflatable gorillas keep them under control.

Hate the game, not the gorilla.

If the entire gorilla burned it might fit with the “Mangled Genitals” ping list. But you never know for sure.

Someone has to say it:

If we ban all inflatable gorillas, then only criminals will have inflatable gorillas.

We lose more inflatable gorillas that way.

If the inflatable gorillas escalate these type of atrocities
I doubt the current administration's ability to counter them.
