MONKEY BUSINESS


Maya, a chimpanzee at Jerusalem's Biblical Zoo, holds her twin babies born two days ago in Jerusalem May 24, 2004. Israeli zookeepers suspected some monkey business only after Maya, a 24-year-old chimpanzee, suddenly gave birth to twins despite an apparent lack of virile mates. The happy event at Jerusalem's Biblical Zoo caught everyone by surprise: nobody had noticed Maya was pregnant and Og and Gremlin, the only adult males among 11 chimps at the facility, were sterilized years ago, a zoo official said Tuesday.

i LOVE monkeys...maybe too much. but this picture has endeared me to your blog even more! what is not to love about monkeys- especially chimps- other than the fact that they fling poo?

Karen: I know you probably think that that's funny -- that whole "black men-monkey" thing; but it really isn't. Not one bit. In fact, it kind of marred my whole ultragrrrl experience this morning. And I don't think I need to get into a lengthy explanation as to why, stupid.

Ron,
Relax, i believe Karen was referring to Michael Jackson's famous affinity for chimps. Remember, it was MJ who carried around a chimp named Bubbles for years and years.

This is Ron: Sarah, I don't want to be the uptight one here (as I have been known to be), and I can get, ostensibly, the MJ reference here, but what does Bobby Brown have to do with chimps. I just don't get it. Maybe Karen could explain it to me?
