Boy are they going to be surprised when they find out the banned all of their cards with people on them.

Came here to say this.  Any image of a human that is not butt-ass naked is an "unnatural image of a great ape".

I send Christmas Cards with pictures of grey drapes.
 
2021-11-30 11:14:12 AM  
Phew... as long as they still upcharge 3-400% on everything else in the store.

Anyone remember "Lance Link: Secret Chimp"
They used a variety of techniques....gum, wires, electric shocks to get the chimps to 'act'

I assume that Real America will react to this monumental change with the same calm, reasoned approach they took with Dr. Seuss books, Aunt Jemima, and Uncle Ben's.

What about Great Capes?

I think Clint Eastwood did more to make people think monkeys can be pets than any greeting card.
 
2021-11-30 11:23:45 AM  
the pharmacy chain banned cards featuring great apes wearing costumes, displayed in studios, or interacting with humans

I'm okay with the first two, but the third would include some of my favorite pictures of Jane Goodall.

I see you've been to their pharmacy.

Guess I'll have to settle for mediocre apes and dynamite monkeys this year.

How about so-so apes?
 
2021-11-30 11:28:11 AM  
Well as long as there are no other pressing issues...

That's why they put the ban in.  The so-so and the average apes sued for discrimination.

Just means more job opportunities for gibbons. Finally their lesser ape status is paying off.

If it distracts them from kidnapping and killing pets, all the better.

What a victory! Brought to you by the group even animal lovers hate.
 
2021-11-30 11:36:18 AM  
Did anyone read that clickbait shiat all the way through? First, their source is PETA. Second, they published it without getting confirmation from the company. Hell, I work for the company and this is the first I've heard of it. Pretty sure this is just free advertising for PETA regarding their "influence."

What I came in here expecting: "ZOMG PETA is out of CONTROL!!"
What I found: Jokes, how humans are also great apes, no PETA hate.

I like Fark.

PETA definitely deserves some hate, but maybe not for this.
 
2021-11-30 11:39:48 AM  
Well, it's a good start.  Hopefully, all other greeting cards are banned by the new year.

i would've posted my previous comment with an image of the cat reading a newspaper, but he wouldn't give me his authorization.

What about Just Okay Apes that aren't so great?  Can we still make fun of them?

PETA members deserve to have their faces and genitals ripped off by an enraged chimpanzee.

There's a number of pictures of naked humans that I'd classify as "unnatural images" as well...

/fark is not your personal erotica site, etc etc...
//I was gonna initialize that, but... finypes?  Nah...

As long as that chimpanzee isn't wearing human clothes or riding unicycles, I think they have to be OK with that.  It's in the by-laws.

So what you're saying is someone is about to make an etsy store that just prints ape cards and is about to make a silly amount of money?
