I mean, a chimp with cufflinks??? They are hard enough to put on WITH opposable thumbs.

Besides, they are on the wrong side of the sleeve.

Chimpanzees (and other great apes) do have opposable thumbs.

It was, but sure did illustrate the idiocy of talking heads and their fearmongering.

I'd say about 99.37% of all commercials I see. Except my version of "hmmmmm" is more like: "Some grown human being had to think of this. . . and some other grown person had to approve it." By this time, I am generally shaking my head in disgust, followed by vague mutterings about "bread and circuses."
