scalpod: PallMall: TommyymmoT: Roto-Rot: One of the best scenes in the movie 'Apollo 13' is when the TV channels are being changed and we briefly see a commercial featuring a chimp in a cage attempting to destroy a piece of luggage.

It's a Samsonite luggage commercial, which some people found offensive because it compared the ape to sky caps and bell hops.

It was especially offensive when you consider that in one ad the "ape" was actually Rick Baker in one of his custom suits.


Yes.

This isn't right by any measure, but I feel less empathy towards a chimp than I do towards a dog or cat. ( despite being close cousins, evolutionarily speaking...) 

/ reading about them mauling humans ain't helpin'


They aren't pets either. I do see benefit in interacting with them in a scientific manner to learn from/about them. Well designed enclosures like this are cool in my book even though it changes their natural behaviors and culture.

Chimpanzees aren't monkeys; they're primates, LIKE YOU AND ME.
