Soooo, this is gonna be me unloading a few pics/videos of chimps. Just warning you now. Don't expect it to somehow become more than that. It's just that yesterday I saw this--
--and bookmarked it, thinking it might be a good link for Friday. Chimp bloopers?! After all--chimp bloopers?! That's so internet!
Then, today, I got this IM.
Emily: and in other news, chimp wedding chimp wedding: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/gallery/2010/09/28/GA2010092802643.html?wpisrc=nl_most
Yes. Apparently there was a chimp wedding in China. I find this photo to be amazing:
Naturally, the picture led me to wonder if chimp weddings happen often. So I Googled "chimp weddings," and, for some reason, found this site, which might be the most amazing thing of all. (Link goes to a cached version of the page, because the actual site is kind of wonky.) I mean, look at this:
- Phrases like "once in a lifetime" and "close-up encounter" with a "young chimpanzee"
- Leopard print in two out of the three photos
- The facial expression on that bottom chimp
And, I just . . . I don't know anymore.
Ah, the disturbing truths we encounter when we dare to Google chimp matrimony precedents.
