All your funny in one place.
Most people have heard of Koko, the gorilla who could speak about 1000 words in Sign Language, and understand about 2000 in English. What most people don’t know, however, is that Koko was an avid Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood fan. When Fred Rogers took a trip out to meet Koko for his show, not only did she immediately wrap her arms around him and embrace him, she did what she’d always seen him do onscreen: she proceeded to take his shoes off.
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.” - Mr. Rogers
'It's the style to wear a smile. Do you know how to put one on your face? In a while you'll feel your smile, you'll know it's there to wear upon your face. Think of something wonderful, something to shout about. Mention something beautiful, smiles are from inside out. It's the style to wear a smile. Do you know how to put one on your face? In a while you'll feel your smile, you'll know it's there to wear; it's there to share.' - Mr Rogers. Photo by Walt Seng #Smiles #Mr_Rogers
