Rusty DePass, former South Carolina state senator candidate and budding comedian, likes to make funnies.

Commenting on a gorilla that escaped from South Carolina's Red Banks Zoo Friday night, DePass noted on Facebook that the animal was probably a relative of Michelle Obama's and thus, harmless.

As you might imagine, that comment went over like a lead balloon.

To his (dis)credit, DePass admitted he was talking about the First Lady, just before he claimed he was just riffing off something she had said previously, a comment that has yet to be verified.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. RUSTY, YOU ARE HILARIOUS.

For real, you're the next Lenny Bruce. Please use Facebook to dispense more of your comedic gems and witty insights.

FAIL.
