Start Your Day With Cup-O-Monkey

Wake up to the smooth proshness of Cup-O-Monkey™. Three adorable varieties: Marmoset, Tamarin, and Capuchin-o. Now caffeine-free (because quite frankly they’re jumpy enough to start with).

An Important Safety Reminder from the Chimpopolis Municipal Zoo

The Human Habitat is a delicate reproduction of a real human ecosystem, from the days when humans inexplicably ruled Chimp Earth. While humans may seem docile and playful, they can become moody and enraged, especially after listening to talk radio. For your safety, do not taunt the humans or bang on the glass. Thank you.

T.G.I.F.

Thank God It’s ‘Fro-day.

Thank God It’s Flirty-day.

THIS JUST IN: Baby’s First Climb

According to the YouTube uploader’s notes, this baby orangutan at the L.A. Zoo climbed off her mother’s back for the very first time as this video was taken.

Spontaneous opera FaveFrame™!

Monkey’s Scope Trial

Yep, this turned out to be a primo panhandling spot. Plenty of tourists, lotta cash, and all I gotta do is flash ‘em that sad soulful look that says “what, you can drop a hundred yen to stare at Mt. Kitayama for three minutes, but you can’t buy me one lousy banana?”

MEWEY DEFEATS HUMAN

Mewey won a sweeping (sleeping?) victory in the purrsidential election yesterday. Early returns show Mewey with a consistent lead over Human in the polls. All indications are that the complete returns will show that Mewey has won by an overwhelming majority!

Challenge Accepted!

In an article in Wired, science reporter Brandon Klein explores “self-domestication” in species like the bonobo, but notes that the trend from aggressive to peaceful lifestyles is necessarily limited in scope — or as he puts it, “Not that bonobos will soon be peeking out of cardboard boxes on Cute Overload.”

Ahem. Without further ado, we present a bonobo with a cardboard box.
