MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — On Election Day, Como Zoo is asking for you to cast your vote to name its new baby gorilla.

The little girl was born three weeks ago on Oct. 18 to parents Alice and Schroeder.

Zookeepers have selected three names for people to choose from: Nyati, Lucy or Rocky.

Ballot boxes will be set up at the zoo all weekend long.

The winning name will be revealed Monday.

    In keeping with St. Paul’s favorite son, Charles Schulz, I recommend Shroeder’s little girl should be named Lucy because Lucy has unrequited love for Schroeder and tries to get Schroeder’s attention, but usually fails, in the Peanuts comics. According to the biographical book Schulz and Peanuts by David Michaelis, Schroeder’s contentious relationship with Lucy was based on Charles M. Schulz’s real life relationship with his first wife, but that’s not important right now.

    Also, a recent headline said that a gorilla couple had their first “child”. gorillas don’t have “children”. baby gorillas are called, simply, Infant gorillas or just plain baby gorillas. kids are goats, so they aren’t that either. “children” are called “brats” and “rugrats” and “curtain crawlers”, so it would be animal cruelty to categorize the poor things with human “children”.
