Cheetas never prosper.

I saw that in the NY Times this morning.

Oh, the humanity! (so to speak)

The Apes of Wrath

**(Not quite remembering the first time he actually said this...)**

It's been a while since I've done this, so let's see if I can come up with something funny.


That writer better watch out or Al Franken might sue. I hear that not only does he dislike unauthorized bios of himself, but he was already planning to use the title, "Me Cheeta" as his re-election campaign slogan.

People went bananas for the book.

They say purported biography like there's some question of authorship.Hrmph.

I notice the complete absence of any contenders named Buddy.

What's the big deal? They wrote Hamlet, didn't they?

Wasn't Hamlet the one about the little pig? At least it's not an autobiography.

I'm waiting til Bubbles' book. "The Monkeys Aren't All In The Zoo"

"Oooo ooo ooo Eeeeeekkk!"

As formerly "Great" Britain circles the drain, the rest of the world looks on bemused.


That stuff about Tarzan and the lubricant? All true.

Do I have to carry the book on my back?

For a second, I thought the URL was apenews.excite.com.

anyway, it's the booker prize, not the booger prize...


Clifford Irving does it again.

If you put 1,000 chimps in a room with 1,000 typewriters for 1,000 years one of them is bound to write about himself.

MartiniShark---I think it's been proven that it doesn't take a thousand years. This chimp has seemed to have narrowed the window quite a bit.

Now we just sit back and wait for the simians to take over. Ohh ohh eee eee...banana kind sir?
