It's One Thing To Have Gorilla Zoe Visit Your School To Give A "Motivational Speech". It's Another To Act Surprised When It Backfires...

There's really nothing for me to add to the story about Atlanta rapper Gorilla Zoe's trip last week to Dallas' Pearl C. Anderson Junior High School that hasn't already been said.

Except, I dunno, that maybe instead of parents and teachers getting annoyed by the fact that the rapper passed out posters of himself with a gun, alcohol, a cigar and stacks of money to students after his "motivational speech", someone probably should've listened to his music before approving the visit.

I mean, c'mon, the first song that plays on his Myspace page, "What It Is", features him bragging about never wearing a rubber.

I believe it was the late, great Paul Gleason who said, "If you mess with the bull, you get the horns."
