When Harambe, the Western lowland silverback gorilla from the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, was shot and killed in May 2016 after grabbing and dragging a 3-year-old boy, he became a household name.
Who can forget the debate surrounding the incident? “Justice for Harambe” was all over the place – a petition urging that the boy’s parents be held responsible.
And then there were the Harambe memes. Some funny, some weird, and some downright ugh.
Almost a year later, the memes aren’t circulating that much, but Harambe is back with a vengeance. In the form of a Cheeto.
A dude discovered a Cheeto in the shape of Harambe (no, it’s not just any gorilla; it’s Harambe) and is selling it on eBay for the starting price of $11.99 only.
The Internet being the Internet, and humans being humans, bids have come pouring in, with the price reaching – as I type – $99,999.00
Gorilla Hot Cheetos – RARE – One of a Kind Cheetos – Harambe Gorilla
You’ve got 9 hours to bid. Make sure you know how to preserve it so your hundred thousand grand is worth it AND that you don’t accidentally eat it when you get the munchies.
