Why don't we eat the gorrilas?


#1

Its been in both My Best Friends Birthday and True Romance, why arent we supposed to eat the gorrila animal crackers?


#2

haha, I actually think thats some of the worst dialogue by Tarantino. Something about “Save the gorillas” just screams that character is an asshole. I dunno…just seems like something someone on a power trip would do.

The gorilla crackers thing is there to show that Clarence is nothing but a geek who acts and thinks like a kid. This complements with his love of comic books and whatnot. I acted the same way he did when I was a kid and someone ate my favorite animal. :’(


#4

I thought it was a joke, you know ‘save the gorrillas’ as in protect endangered species type thing


#5

I don’t think there is an answer. Quentin just wanted to sound cool.


#6

^^it didn’t sound cool…anyway, here’s a fact: gorillas dna only differ by 3% compared to us…


#7

So why don’t we eat the humans?


#8

humans have a personality. and personality goes a long way…

Wait, wait, wait. YOU don’t eat the humans? What’s the matter with you?


#10

When I said “we”, I meant “we” as a collective society who find eating humans against the norms of the people that make up this world. I of course eat humans on occasion, but it’s nothing to brag about.


#11

I eat norms for lunch. And Carls, and bobs, and Lennys, but Norms too…


#12

I like eating girls…out
