Aren't these the giant lion-eating chimps of the magic forest?

If this is true, then I'd be a monkey's uncle.

But do they know where Solomon's temple is?

Pfffft. Tell us something we don't know.

Pretty soon they'll be using CapitalOne credit cards and driving Lexus SUV's.

I thought Congo was in Nicuragua or something.

Close, but not quite. RTFA, the man studying them says they don't howl at the moon. Everything else, yes.

They are actually a population of super-sized chimps with a unique culture

You mean the Hutu?

Someone needs to get these chimps to vegas, where we can video tape them knife fighting and post it on YouTube. Screw UFC

/Furious George
 
2007-07-14 10:30:58 PM  
This is very cool.

Perhaps we can train them to work machines.

We'll give them plenty of turtles to smash.


...and they will be...

happy.
 
2007-07-14 10:32:31 PM  
Nonsense.

The real problem is the baboons -- they're aggressive and travel in bands.

But when you're on a bicycle even the columns of army ants are a problem.

/Been there -- the Congo (Zaire).
//Done that -- Kasongo to Kisangani on a bicycle.
 
awr

Apes, only they're not so big.

Check out my post in the giant reptile thread. This is starting to get weird.

I'm a lion killing giant chimp and I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

2007-07-14 10:51:57 PM  
Do these giant chimps fling giant sized globs of poo?
 
2007-07-14 10:52:51 PM  
No, attractive and successful African-Americans in general.
 
2007-07-14 11:03:35 PM  
chimp + gorilla = chilla?

Mr Hicks said the animals also have what he calls a "smashing culture" - a blunt but effective way of solving problems.

I came in here for the obvious Congo reference and the less obvious Furious George reference and I was not disappointed.

18 months studying them and not one picture?
Michael Chichton wouldn't even write a plot this stupid.

Oh, wait. He did.

JESUS CHRIST IT'S A LION! Get the giant chimp!
 
2007-07-14 11:38:53 PM  
So how big is super-sized? Don't tell me there are giant freakin' chimpanzees and then not tell me how giant.

Are we talking four foot tall with a beer gut or are we talking Chewbacca with a chimp mask?
