Ape Warning

Apparently someone is teaching apes how to build fires.
That's a perfectly sane idea.  What could possibly go wrong?

Bonobo ponders roasting a human being.

I saw this last night! Is it real?

The way he was breaking the twigs, and lightning the match, seemed impossible.

Rot said...

I pray it's not real.
Though those hands looked mighty real.
I was just hoping that some stupid humans trained him to do each individual scene, with no connecting the dots whatsoever.

Oh no. Oooooohhhh hell no.

Planet of the Apes was not a fictional movie. It was a warning to humans of what is to come.

I think it's safe to say this lady's destiny is mutilation.
Especially how she starts nagging the chimp about his undercooked marshmallow.

That's a bonobo - a quite famous one at that..
Kanzi. And the woman is Sue Savage Rumbaugh and she is a crazy person.
Kanzi decided a guy working at the ape facility should have bitten another guy working there. When the dude didn't, Kanzi escaped and bit the first guy!
Kanzi knows human language and is able to do all kinds of crazy stuff.
Too bad Sue treats him as human and he'll be dead soon enough from human associated obesity..
