Monkeying Around

There’s monkey business on the streets of Thailand… and manners are a thing of the past.

Thousands of primates were treated to a fruitful spread, courtesy of local business owners who believe monkeys bring good fortune and prosperity.

But it looks like these guys are the ones with all the luck.

No such luck for chimps in the big apple — a New York appeals court rejected an animal rights advocate’s bid to extend “legal personhood” to chimpanzees.

A five-judge panel decided that it was not possible for this 26-year-old chimp to understand the social contract that binds humans together.

One could argue against the social graces of this billy goat, disrupting a soccer match in Greece.

As hard as these athletes tried, they couldn’t convince the goat to stay away for long.

…In position to be the next goalkeeper.

Now here’s a gentle giant… This giant panda is the proud mother of twins, born at a Japanese zoo.

Motherly love is a beautiful thing — and I think these Thai monkeys would agree.
