Did further research find that all these scientists decided to swap beds with the chimpanzees?

Knock, knock, knock... " Housekeeping ! "

Yeah, but we flush instead of fling.

These scientists must have been studying my kids.

More accurately, "Chimpanzees have cleaner beds than scientists, say scientists."

Key quote: "Compared with human beds,the chimp nests had a much greater variety of bugs."

This could make for a rough night if you sleep on a mattress full of scorpions, centipedes, spiders and such.
What DO these "scientists" smoke?

Pffft! Study done by N.C. State. Now if had been done by UNC-Chapel Hill I'd be worried. Go Heels!

The let the "scientists" sleep with them!

What was that old saying about "you made your bed, now go out and play!" wait--that's not right, is it?

"You made your bed, now sleep in it!" (That line was also used alot in the Planet of The apes sequels.)

"Ms Thoemmes said: 'There were only four ectoparasites found, across all the nests we looked at.

And that's four individual specimens, not four different species.'"

The Apes of Math.

"Take your stinkin' hands off my bed, you damn dirty human!"

The DO have Sleep APE NEA

Not only two MyPillows but the two go-anywhere pillows also so we can "go-anywhere"!
