Who's Having a Worse Day: American Airlines or the Dallas Zoo?

And the Dallas Zoo, already up to its bananas in Jenny protesters, has more bad news today, as KDFW-Channel 4 is reporting that Hercules, a 43-year-old gorilla at the zoo, has died of an apparent heart attack. Time to redo this tee, I guess. --Robert Wilonsky
