"Monkeybutt" was my favorite insult name in 5th grade. Think I'll start using it again in staff meetings and stuff.

Maybe its a monkey with multiple butts.

Because, like all primates, females demand it, so males supply it, in an effort to get laid.

Know someone that didn't wipe very well in 5th grade did you?

This is why we must crack down on saggy pants.

Is that what I've been doing wrong?

Plus, the best colored monkey butts on the internet!

That is just so racist, probably.

Because all monkeys are ass guys, and can you blame them?  The breasts are saggy and the legs are hairy.

I'm a butt-monkey so I'm getting a kick...
 
2013-04-11 06:18:32 PM  
so you know where to put your pee-pee in?
 
2013-04-11 06:24:44 PM  
I always assumed it was a sexual attractor, much like large breasts in humans. indeed. I had a psych teacher explain that human kind evolved  pair bonding and monogamy (heh) by moving the "round fleshy orbs" from the behind as in monkeys, to the front, to stimulate face to face nookie and thus pair-bonding.

This read like one of those anti-jokes. The headline and opening paragraph promise one subject, but then you get an entirely different article.
This isn't about biology at all.
 
2013-04-11 06:36:14 PM  
I was hoping for an evolutionary reason, not a physics lesson.

I would totally support  a Miss Gorgor pageant.

Why do men let their pants hang off their butts?

Because gravity. Duh.
 
2013-04-11 06:43:04 PM  
Now answer for me why journalists can't be bothered to know the difference between monkeys and apes.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

For purposes of international statistical comparison, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) defines a road as "a line of communication (travelled way) using a stabilized base other than rails or air strips open to public traffic, primarily for the use of road motor vehicles running on their own wheels," which includes "bridges, tunnels, supporting structures, junctions, crossings, interchanges, and toll roads, but not cycle paths."[1] In urban areas roads may diverge through a city or village and be named as streets, serving a dual function as urban space easement and route.[2] Modern roads are normally smoothed, paved, or otherwise prepared to allow easy travel.[3] Historically many roads were simply recognizable routes without any formal construction or maintenance.[4]
 
2013-04-11 06:52:00 PM  
One reason is because they walk around on all fours so...the butt of the monkey is easy to see.  When said monkey wants to get some it's pretty easy for the others to tell.

That's either pedophilia or besialtity. 
To "do" chicken would clearly lead to polygamy and homoghey marriage.

RTFA. This is the first time I really seriously felt trolled. Yes, I know how light and paint works. I really wanted the evolutionary tale.

Wow.  I knew she'd gone 'round the bend, but I had no idea just how far....

I had to break down and read TFA.  I expected it to be about ischial callosities, not about light and color.

What a human monkey butt may look like.

Notice the lack of blue. Blue would probably be very bad.
