That's nothing. We have a 180lb one running the country.

In before the obvious "Isn't that redundant?/Most feminists 200lb orangutans anyway" joke.

Once he has evolved a bit more, he'll switch to George Sands.

Reading books to Orangutans might just be in the top 10 best dayjobs ever.

Admittedly, I haven't read P&P, but isn't it about a group of sisters trying to get married? How is that feminist?

I'm pretty sure he regularly posts on here. Would explain a lot. A LOT.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single orangutan in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a book.

Not if you need to read them Pride and Prejudice for the umpteenth time.

It's full of outdated concepts, histrionic outbursts, and makes men slowly shake their heads in disbelief. How is that *not* feminist?

No, this is P&P&O not P&P&Z.

Note to self: probably a bad idea to read P&P&Z to O.

It's in Poland.

The orangutan probably just thinks someone chattering away to him in Polish is amusing.

I suspect this ape was once a human wizard.

wait wait... orangutans can read?

does he use sign language or something?

do they have any idea what is actually going on in those books?

ugh.

Can't believe you admit watching Gremlins II.
Had successfully edited it from memory until just now....dammit.

No, it's about a group of sisters being pushed into arranged marriages, with Elizabeth choosing to defy her parents and tradition, believing she was more than "just a wife" and either go unmarried or marry for love. Highly progressive for its time.

Christopher Lee has a cameo. Daniel Clamp sends a Gremlin down the shredder while his deputy gets molested by a hermaphroditic (??) Gremlin in the men's room. The crazy Asian photographer. Dracula doing the news (with Brain Guy). Gizmo doing his best Rambo III. Gargoyle Gremlin. The Canadian restaurant. The guys making fun of the Mogwai "rules" in the control room right before they get eaten. George-and-Lenny Gremlins. That weird vignette in the middle where the Gremlins "fark up" the movie (complete with a Leonard Maltin sighting).

What's NOT to like?
