What My Readers Want, My Readers Get

By: T.R. Slyder,

A Chimpanzee on a Segway.

In there interest of taking some of the fun out of the video: Don't forget apes and monkeys are threatened in their natural habitats. When people think of Pandas, or Polar Bears or Bald Eagles the first thing they think of is "endangered", but when they think of chimps or orangutans they think "Hilarious in that one movie!", but they are in fact equally endangered. A lot of ape and monkey scientists are p.o.'d about these animals being portrayed as comedic (which I do), and not as animals in a threatened habitat. So consider this my equal time for conveying the seriousness of their survival in the wild. So Do NOT order Monkey Burgers if you're in a market in Africa. Please. Thank you.
