    Koko the Gorilla and his famous AOL chat thingie?

    Funny, from wikipedia: Koko has been involved in a number of sexual harassment lawsuits. At least three former female employees have claimed that they were pressured into showing their breasts to Koko. They alleged that Patterson encouraged the behavior, often interpreted Koko’s signs as requests for nipple display, and let them know that their job would be in danger if they “did not indulge Koko’s nipple fetish.” Koko has been known to playfully grab both male and female nipples without warning or provocation. Patterson claims that Koko uses the word “nipple” to refer to humans.

    1 Looks like Amy – the Gorilla from Congo. 2 is the AIM logo.
    Guess the connection is sign language? Emoticons? Dunno.
