I can't tell— which one of us is that a video of?
It's an mpeg.
"You killed my banana tree. For this you will die."
If one can die from the shame of being beaten up by a chimp.
I remember as a kid watching Lancelot Link and enjoying it, but now when I see chimps dressed up and doing people sort of things, it just makes me sad and kinda creeped out. I know why I feel sad (humans forcing their weird anthropomorphic desires on the chimps) but don't know why it creeps me out...
Ah, My Squidling, you have done it again:
Monkeyfilter: weird anthromorphic desires ...creeps me out
squidranch: Think of it this way. Is the chimp healthy? Yes. Physically and mentally stimulated? Yes. Happy? Probably. It's way better off than lots of chimps rotting away in cages in many zoos.

And don't forget all that bonus karma and inner peace that little fella's earned though hundreds of hours of training.
I agree that the chimp is probably happier than in a zoo, it still gives me the creeps the same way that taxidermy displays in museums creeps me out. The animals just don't seem to belong in that enviroment. Just my peculiar kink, I guess.
Nice. Gracias para el linko. (Though squid, I can see where you're coming from.)
The monkey doesn't have any problems that a good chunk of the human race doesn't deal with daily.
I would say that the chimp enjoys what it is doing. Chimps are by no means docile, and they are something like 5 times stronger than people, so if it didn't like it, it could tear the guys ears off, or something. However, like many trained chimps, it does appear to have had its fangs removed, which I object to. However, I suppose it is understandable, given their penchant for biting people.
