Don't monkey with the apes

Interesting news from Spain ... legislature to consider a bill bestowing "human rights" for certain types of ape (but no monkeys). Interesting that the Catholic Church is ... um ... uncomfortable with this idea.

does that include the right for two male apes to marry?

It should concern the Vatican. I don't think apes can kneel, can they?

Why'd you havto do it?

Does these meean human rights will change too? Will poo-flinging be found as an appropriate retort in an argument?

Oh yeah! I went there!

Does this mean I am capable of flinging poo?

UHHHMMMMM.........

Funny you should mention that Mark the Bruce.
Do a google search of "Monkey Giving Banana to Christ" and the second find is a link to your monkey rights article.

killy said...

why? why?! why!?

why would i ever type the phrase, "monkey giving banana to Christ?"

why on earth why?

(mental note: for increased comment activity include a 1 monkey, a splash of god and 1 cup civil rights)

mark, for the record my first comment was going to include tithing, but then a kneeling monkey occured to me and that seemed just so funny. has anyone seen a kneeling monkey.

a google search for tithing monkey turned up no results.

Fox News countdown: how long before pundits use it to push whatever agenda they've got?

taggart said...

Killy the "this" in my first comment is a link to a picture of a kneeling monkey.

and Killy what else are monkeys going to tithe with?
B-A-N-A-N-A-S !!!!!!
Just like Gwen sings.!!!!!!

Taggart, your "this" link is clearly a squatting monkey.

Monkeys are known to squat right before they fling.

killy said...

well, it seems that chimps are jerks and wouldn't tithe anyway.
