Poor Harambe, we'll never see his like again

So, farewell Harambe, it seemed we never really knew you at all.
Harambe, the most famous Western lowland silverback gorilla of recent times, celebrated his 17th birthday in Cincinnati Zoo last Friday. A day later he was shot by the same keepers who had, 24 hours earlier, made him a birthday cake. A solemn candlelight vigil has been held outside his enclosure ever since the 'murder' and it's believed there will be a memorial service outside the zoo this evening.
OK, am I the only person who laughs when they read that?
