Koko the Gorilla, capable of signing over 600 symbols, admitted in a press conference on Tuesday that she was very drunk in a 1998 AOL interview with Dr. Penny Patterson.
Many of the zoologists present at the 1998 chat related that "Koko was visibly impaired, she was tripping all over herself."
One onlooker even related that "Koko crashed her new Cadillac Escalade into the studio wall earlier that day."
Koko expressed concern that more people weren't aware of her extreme drunkeness. "I was saying completely outrageous things, I mean, 'birthday food smokes?' 'lips fake candy'? This stuff is complete nonsense."
