“…if primates ruled the earth…”

I, um, I was under the impression that we do.

I can’t even come up with a cogent, witty comment for all this – just… can’t.

But I will say as someone who has sworn never to own a motorcycle the pimped out Monkey/Gorilla/whatever would have the potential to change my mind. Also, the Hardly Davidson/chimp lede picture was absolute perfection.

And just like that, you’ve helped me with my fast. I don’t think I’ll eat for two days.

I used to work with a woman who had once had a job at the university swine research facility. Her job was to retrieve hog semen, and she didn’t get any fancypants electonic items to put up their butts. She did it the old fashioned way, hand-in-glove, so to speak. She said that as soon as she walked into the barn, the hogs all ran to the front of their pens, obviously very happy to see her. Not sure who had the better job, her or you, Jason.

Now, who else can provide an animal research ejaculation story?

That explains that See-N-Say toy that said, “The pig says Oink-oink, Baby.”

Keep in mind, non-members don’t get this kind of information. You’ve spent your money well.

Anyone else feel like renewing their membership early?

Not what I was expecting to read at 10am on a Saturday. Now I’ll have a story of a chimp playing soggy yam with himself in my head all day. Can we get another HardiLeaf liveblog range test to cleanse the palate?

“Editor’s Note: I’d just like to explain myself here a bit. This is a thing for me because to pay my expenses for my first two years of college, I had a job at the Yerkes Primate Research Lab”

That explains a lot.

The hell you must have gone through…
Clocking in just to sit in that cage?

So wait… isn’t that how yams are generally prepared for consumption?
Am I doing something wrong?
Same as my grandparents old recipe.

What, no mention of Adam from Ark II? Didn’t we obsess about the show’s Brubaker Box scout vehicle last year?

Ha, just the other day I was watching a newer episode of Beavis and Butthead (don’t judge, I grew up in the ’90s and sometimes irreverent stupidity is what I want at the end of the night) and Butthead beratingly corrected Beavis that a chimpanzee is not a monkey. Of course what made this funny is that you’d never expect either of them to know this and it came out of left field.

So now I’m wondering who is the Beavis vs Butthead here, heh.

Some of the best Simpsons bits are where Homer busts out some amazing piece of knowledge or cultural reference, much to everyone’s surprise. And they often turn to Lisa, who, astonished, confirms it.

“No, you’re envious; jealousy is when you’re worried someone will take what you have, envy is when you want something someone else has.” “He’s right!!”

Kind of reminds me when Archer or Cheryl/Carol whips out a horribly obscure historical or literary reference. “Well who am I? Alphonse Bertillon?!” https://youtu.be/cRGTTp2j3SM?si=oz19079wUev2CTLN

I’ve always enjoyed the counterpoint of Ray’s willful obtuse-ness.

On Archer I always enjoyed, “How could you know that?” Followed by, “How could you not?”

To be clear, there is nothing silly about CHiPs. That show saved an entire generation from terminal ennui during sick days.

Granted, it was no Fall Guy…

Nothing silly about CHiPs??
-perhaps you’ve forgotten the Disco roller skate episode?

What I love about the show (aside from showcasing the cars) is how it captures the zeitgeist of the time: a mix of dystopian dismay and manic, all-things-are -possible -if-we-just-try, optimism.
And lots of physics-defying fiery wrecks, of course

I said what I said…

…and viewed within the context of that era, there was absolutely (if unfortunately) nothing silly about Disco Roller Skating.

Does a monkey bike have monkey bars for handle bars? Do all the fittings require a monkey wrench? Do they operate in S Florida out of Mon Key? You got a gorilla fine let’s all remember BJ and the Bear. Bear was a monkey. Then BJ and the 7 Lady Truckers. Anyone remember that show?

But the best thing about Chips and now the worst thing about NCIS is no matter what the topic karate, hang gliding, alcoholism you name it one of the stars or costars has/knows it.
