THIS JUST IN: Eet’s A Bebeh Grilla, People

The Cincinnati Zoo has itself a new resident, a five week old bebeh female grilla named Gladys Stones, that was born at the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, Texas. (Her name is a combo of the facility name, and the last name of the family that cared for her prior to leaving for the Queen City.)

Charlie, it is positively tea time I do think. Are you even listening to me?


For the last time, Charles. Is it or is it not time we should be having our tea!


There are times when one requires a spot of tea. And this is one of those times!
