"The circus billed him as a gorilla, forcing him to smoke, drink alcohol and act like a boxer for its show, Munoz said.
I'm glad the guy's ordeal is over now, but I'd still pay good money to watch some chimp boxing.

I didn't realize they were taking contributions this early for the 2004 Bush re-election.

He'll be sharing a room with Bubbles, Scatter, and Crusty's chimp while all four furry brothers try to quit smoking cold turkey.

Word is the chimp plays drums better than Ringo.
2003-05-19 02:55:19 PM  
Wooo hoo, where my check!

"they also castrated to keep him under control"

maybe we should try this with a few politicians.

" BRITISH musician Paul McCartney will provide the plane fare home for Toto, a chimpanzee smuggled from Africa 23 years ago and forced to perform in a Chilean circus, the El Mercurio daily reported today."

What the vhimp looked like after 23 years of smoking and drinking:

I'll bet he's a real asshole now though, around the monkey sanctuary. I turn into a real biatch if I haven't had any cigarettes. I can't imagine the fury that a boxing nicotine deprived monkey will bring. God help them all.
2003-05-19 03:03:35 PM  
Do you supposed he'd fit in a blender?
2003-05-19 03:04:49 PM  
roguepixie- just looked at your photos----nice bum!
2003-05-19 03:05:23 PM  
Seeing how cheap ciggies are in Chile, eight grand should keep the little fella smoked up for a good long while. Nice work Paul!

Great Keith Richards pic.
I was thinking along the lines of Larry King, but Keith takes it hands down man.
2003-05-19 03:05:28 PM  
First good thing McCartney has done since the Beatles.
2003-05-19 03:07:02 PM  
Michael Jackson doesn't need the money, Paul.
2003-05-19 03:08:16 PM  
Why the "strange" tag? Strange would have been if Macca had spent 8 G's on a solid gold anal bum cover or something. I say give him a hero tag.

skinink: LMAO...perfect
2003-05-19 03:11:06 PM

2003-05-19 03:14:30 PM

2003-05-19 03:16:00 PM  
Paul replied, "I'd pay anything to get this monkey off my back"

2003-05-19 03:16:36 PM  
He's such a Michael Jackson wannabe.
2003-05-19 03:22:40 PM  
what a waste of money. why don't he donate 8,000 to drew. After the kid is born, he is going to need it!
2003-05-19 03:23:24 PM  
Thanks for compliments. ;)
2003-05-19 03:24:24 PM  
There was a chimp who used to drink beer and smoke at this bar nearby in Foster, OH (near Landen).. He had his own bar stool (outside of his normal cage) and would go nuts (ape?) if someone would sit in it. He also used to sit and spank his .. well you know.

Mr. Peepers?
2003-05-19 03:30:06 PM  
Roguepixie - I once had an art teacher named (no lie) Judith Crayon. Man did I have a crush on her

Like your Bum too...
2003-05-19 03:39:40 PM  
And there are many people who will never experience the simple joys of a monkey knife fight.
2003-05-19 03:44:13 PM  
Furious George needs $$$ too!!

Do yous guys sell monkey chow here? Well how 'bout just monkeys?
2003-05-19 04:04:21 PM  
What about Mr. Teeny? He needs his Percadin!
2003-05-19 04:09:26 PM  
Roguepixie's bum pics are farked. The preview I did catch was nice though.
2003-05-19 04:55:00 PM  
Oooh! Unfarked. Nice kiester.

2003-05-19 04:58:38 PM  
Macman-I fixed it just for you! ;)
2003-05-19 04:58:57 PM  
Yes, indeed. Nice tush.
2003-05-19 05:02:40 PM  
Monkey knife fighting is much more interesting than smoking chimps
2003-05-19 05:03:34 PM  
I haven't seen a good monkey knife fight in forever!
2003-05-19 07:18:50 PM  

Its been a while since I saw that bum pic.
Remind me to send you one of mine later.

2003-05-19 08:10:22 PM  
Why can't the Australians get their own dollar sign?
2003-05-19 10:57:28 PM  
It's nice to hear that he's looking after Ringo.
