No educational trip to the zoo is complete without learning about different animals, what they eat, and, of course, how to flip the bird.

One little girl got a lesson on what to do when someone cuts you off while driving from the kindest of gorillas. The primate gestures to her with its middle finger; she mimics the move to convey her comprehension.

At least this youngster’s older cousins can’t be blamed when she’s asked where she learned to do that. And it looks like her mom thought the whole situation was pretty funny, writing in the video’s description, “This was hilarious, gotta love the gorillas at the columbus zoo!!!”
