7. FRANCINE PATERSONApparently, female primates can have fetishes for fleshy knockers. At least that’s what Francine “Penny” Paterson, trainer of celebrity gorilla Koko, and president of The Gorilla Foundation, believed. Back in 2004, Paterson, seemingly hoping to promote beastiality, tried to force two of her female employees to flash their breasts in front of Koko; after the workers, names Nancy Alperin and Kendra Keller, refused to reveal any nip to the famous gorilla, they were both fired, which prompted a $1 million lawsuit, and, we’re guessing, tons of uproarious laughter inside the judge’s chamber.
In Keller’s formal complaint, she stated that Patterson once said, directly to Koko, “You see my nipples all the time. You are probably bored with my nipples. You need to see new nipples. I will turn my back so Kendra can show you her nipples.” Maybe Koko had a thing for areolas specifically; whatever the case, Patterson deserves kudos for reimagining the notion of “sexual harassment.” She’s a sick bastard, sure, but she’s certainly not conventional.
