Those pictures are fabulous.

Where's my Palady Malady. I want to give her a hug.

So I’m wondering. How did Althouse get so close to an orangutan who seems so relaxed?

Was she wearing one of these?

Sometimes they're really relaxed.

Your orangutan is smarter than my 25 year-old law student. He or she would make a welcome addition to the U.S. Supreme(Pro-Monkey Business)Ct. Like Clarence Thomas, he or she needn't speak - it's a mute court after all. Simon will harry the new activist judge for being too hairy and for going out on limb on every contorted and controversial case. When the Organ-Grinder's case comes before the court, the plaintiff will have to show cause for turning his monkey into a beggar with a tin cup. Although capuchin monkeys weren't specifically mentioned, that's plainly a violation of the 13th Amendment prohibiting slavery. Monkey's shouldn't have to work for peanuts either (they are not elephants); it goes against the natural laws of man & beast.

Orangutan always reminds me of Tang, the astronauts' drink of choice.

The orangey colour and the sound of Orang-u-tan melding together in my head, maybe.

I also have similar problems with chimpanzee reminding me of trapeze.

Clearly, I need to stop thinking of insouciant mammals.
