"We'll learn more about why baboons actually love grapes."

Says the lady newscaster in the purple dress as a baboon, smiling, gropes her breast.

You've got to be careful around baboons. I believe they're the most aggressive primate.

Mickey's got himself a new addition to the troop.

Buried in an article in a scholarly journal, there was an anecdote detailing the rape of a local housekeeper by a gorilla who had been adopted and made to feel as human as possible. He looked around and decided that the maid was his status. What gets to me is that none of the foreign academics stepped in to stop the rape. (It was public.) The reasoning was that it would further endanger the woman, but come on. They should have shot the ape dead. They sold out their own species. They essentially agreed with the gorilla about the housekeeper' s status. He wasn't just humping het either. Penetration was involved. Yikes. How do you get over that?

There's an old post in my archives somewhere about a woman working at some chimp study place where she was required to allow the animals to grope her, and she sued her employer for sexual harassment (or something).

Here... and it was a gorilla that did sign language and asked to see the worker's breasts.

Sounds like the woman who was tearfully confiding to her best friend about being captured and ravaged by a baboon while on safari in Africa. "Oh, Honey, that's so terrible!", her friend said. "I know", said the distraught woman, "he never calls ... he never writes ...."

That's not a smile.

A baboon took my lunch at the Cape of Good Hope. I tried to scare him away, but then he flashed those teeth, and the lunch was his.

It must be the cage... or the bubble.

@Althouse, regarding your comment at 12:34, I recall reading something similar around the time that the Connecticut woman's "pet" chimpanzee Travis literally ripped her neighbor's face off. But as I recollect it was a chimpanzee that raped the foreign academics' maid.

And the reason why the academics did nothing to try to stop it is that a male chimpanzee is about five times stronger than an adult human male. Not to mention 2 1/2 inch long canine teeth. And we're talking a physically fit human, not your typical academic.

And I don't mean to get snarky or anything, but if the baboon can't tell the difference between a purple grape and the woman's purple-covered breast, perhaps she should think about seeing a plastic surgeon for some silicon?

Just sayin'

Actually I think we're the most aggressive primate based on a study of history
