the next thing we should do is to teach them how to brush their teeth.

And then chimps shall take over the world.

Wonder how they are going to get that chimp to quit. It`s going to be hard if all those people are still going to throw him cigs. That guy has a tough road ahead of him.

Zoos are horrible. How would you like to be locked up while a bunch of people stare, gape, point, laugh, throw cigarettes at you, etc? Let the monkey smoke, it needs it.

"Humans are really nothing more than chimps who know how to tie shoes."

B-|

Anyway, it is pretty pathetic. I wonder if they could alleviate it slightly by giving the chimp unlit cigarettes... Would it still mimic the behavior without the cigarette being lit? Hmm...

"Suga, you`re an idiot. This is a wild animal. There is a huge difference between that and children."

If I were kept in a f u c k i n zoo, I`d probably smoke too. This isn`t a wild animal. This is a creature that`s basicaly in JAIL for the simple crime of being a chimp. Humans are really nothing more than chimps who know how to tie shoes.

It is funny because now there would be an entire restriction of smoking in the zoo. Not one visitor may light up a sig. That`s what I heard.

"children... becoming smokers themselves?... if thats ok, then this chimp smoking is as well."

Um, who exactly is saying that children learning to become smokers is `okay`? I agree with Torari, this story isn`t funny, it`s sad.

I think the disturbing part is that these people must be throwing LIT cigarettes at the chimp, which is pretty cruel. I wonder how many burns he endured before he learned how to pick it up safely. Unless, of course, he`s procured a lighter and is lighting the cigs himself, which is just freaking amazing. If this is the case, we should start throwing smokes to the rest of the animals at the zoo to speed up their evolution.

Ugh. This makes me as angry as the idiot that threw the fish into the East River... but I`m not going to start that arguement again.

funny or sad I cant deceide.

what I wonder though is how is it that people are getting so upset over a monkey doing somthing that will kill it, yet many can care less about the fact that many humans do the same, and it is legal.

okay that is my two cents.

I think that is disgusting. For all of you that think it`s funny that people were throwing cigs at the animal and that it started smoking, you have serious issues.

Suga, you`re an idiot. This is a wild animal. There is a huge difference between that and children.

There aren`t enough words to express my disgust at those who think it`s funny and to those who threw the cigs.

lol thats insane! I find great humor in a chimp that wants to smoke! ooh and how is this any different from children growing up watching their parents smoking, then becoming smokers themselves? I think that if thats ok, then this chimp smoking is as well. I thought that it was an awesome post!
