    Ever the emotional eater, Kibabu swallows his sorrows as Lionel Messi kicks Barca to victory over Manchester United.

    Kibabu, the birthday gorilla, eats a healthy serving of lettuce as thousands of environmentally-minded shutterbugs snap photos with their mobile phones.

    At least they mixed it up for my birthday; the iceberg lettuce was starting to get booring. Now, if I could just get the humans to be so healthy........
