(Herald Scotland)   Zoo says giving bananas to monkeys is an idea so crazy, zookeepers wish there were a fruit-derived simile for it. Anyway, they're not giving bananas to monkeys anymore   (heraldscotland.com) divider line 26

Dynamite is still OK?

If God didn't want monkeys to eat bananas, He wouldn't have designed them that way.

I guess that means it's apples only now at the craft services table at Fox News.

"Giving this fruit to animals is equivalent to giving them cake and chocolate.

Don' they eat fruit in the wild? I mean, other than the occasional member of a rival troop?

Wait, does this mean that the Planet of the Apes sequel with Ricardo Montalban was right? I'll be damned

FTFA: "Senior head keeper of mammals Matthew Webb said: "We have noticed an improvement in the condition of primate coats - in particular the colour and thickness of the fur of the Sulawesi crested black macaques. "

Well, I'm all for anything that improves the colour and thickness of the fur on macaque.

To most people, monkeys and bananas go together like a horse and carriage, but it seems that this cliche is now redundant.

Who writes this shiat, the monkeys?

Didn't finish reading TFA I see.  Human cultivated fruit is far more energy dense and higher in sugars than what they would find in the wild.  Seriously, it was the very next line in the article.

I came here to comment on the misuse of the word redundant too. I love it when idiots try to use big words and fail.

Funny, I was just feeding monkeys bananas on the top of Sugarloaf Mountain in Rio De Janerio last week:

Didn't plan on it, I was recovering from a mild case of food poisoning so all I could eat was simple foods, like rice and bananas. Had one on me for a snack, sat down to eat it and in seconds was swarmed by them in seconds. It was pretty wild.

To be made redundant means to lose your job because your employer no longer needs the job itself done.

What I've never understood is the weirdos who unzip bananas with the stem at the top.

In other words, it's UKish for laid off.

Not quite. If you do your job badly and are let go, that's fired. If your employer eliminates the department you work in and the job is gone then you've been made redundant.

Sorry bout the food poisoning, but I bet it was worth it to have that experience with the cute critters eating from your hand..

Totally. Missed the botanical gardens, but got that instead.

No, he's Crocoduck Boy.  It's his pal Ray Comfort who's Banana Man.

So what the article is really saying is that food produced for human consumption is unhealthy crap.

They just learned wrong, is all. I've never met anyone who wouldn't convert after being introduced to the proper way.
