Title text: Gorilla, yes. Adorable golden retriever, yes. But it says nothing about meerkats.
The situation is a reference to the Animal Athlete Loophole trope, where an animal joins a failing sports team and saves the day. The other team (i.e. the bad guys) does not like it, but since there is not a specific rule against it, it has to be allowed.
- [A Meerkat wearing a helmet and jersey, and two guys in the background supposedly on a rugby field.]
- You have to admit--there's no rule on the books saying a Meerkat can't play rugby.
