Azalea, a 19 year old North Korean chimpanzee, spends her days at the Central Zoo in Pyongyang chain smoking cigarettes.
In North Korea's newly renovated Central Zoo, a smoking chimpanzee named Azalea is the main attraction. Inspiring laughter and delight in her visitors, Azalea smokes approximately one pack of cigarettes a day and has the ability to light her own cancer sticks. According to the Central Zoo officials, Azalea doesn't inhale, but we're skeptical.
Other attractions at the Central Zoo include a dog pavilion, a monkey that can slam dunk a basketball, and a flock of doves that dance with a woman while she ice skates. Sounds like a lit time we'll never have.
“Harambe? I haven’t heard that name in years,” Azalea says as she takes a drag of her cigarette. https://t.co/250As9kSHt— Ashley Alese Edwards (@AshleyAlese) October 19, 2016
Is Azalea about to sweep the Internet? Could the smoking chimp become the new king meme? Is there any replacing Harambe?
