The Monkeys Strikes Back

February 27th, 2009 · No Comments

I was watching a rerun of Six Feet Under last night, and caught a throwaway factoid that had slipped from my mind: Chimps are more closely related to us than they are to gorillas. My first thought upon hearing this, of course, was, “Well, where does that leave the poor monkeys on the primate scale?”

The photo above, snapped by my good pal Daddy Like on his recent trip to India, provides some clue. It also leaves me wondering how this situation was resolved.

After you’ve finished pondering the roots of primate violence, check out Daddy Like’s radio show, Fresh Produce, which broadcasts semi-regularly from “an undisclosed location in South London.” Perhaps the only show in existence that plays both Herbie Mann and The Coup on a regular basis.
