Talking freakin' Monkeys?!

Recent research indicates that certain monkeys may be using rudimentary sentences to communicate with each other. This ability was previously only attributed to humans. Aside from the usual sounds that communicate simple ideas such as danger, the Putty Nose Monkey assembles simple sounds to create syntax.
Dr. Kate Arnold added: “The implications are that primates, at least, may be able to ignore the usual relationship between an individual call and any meaning that it might convey under certain circumstances.”
Dr Zuberbühler said: “To our knowledge, this is the first good evidence of a syntax-like natural communication system in a non-human species.”

These new finding speak volumes to the shared abilities of most primates and of the evolutionary possess. An article in todays Nature, describes the actually split between man and Chimpanzee came much later than originally thought, and how the genetics testing confirms cross breeding between the two emerging species for some time. This validates of my strong urges to fling poo. In other related news. The human genome sequencing project has been fully completed.

Comments for Talking freakin' Monkeys?!
Apparently Dr.Arnold has never watched george bush give a speech. It would have saved her a lot of time and research.

It does explain why I always have an urge to grab complete strangers and search their hair for fleas.

According to reports, scientists have begun translating the language of the monkeys. Among the sentences that have been deciphered are these:

"Man, human's really suck!"

"Yea, I know what you mean. They think their better than everything else."

"One of these days, we should all get organized and attack them."

"That's an excellent idea. I bet we could get the gorillas to go in on it too."

"Yea, and not just them! I'm thinkin' we could get the lions and antelopes - hell, even the birds! The birds are REALLY pissed off."

"I'm likin' the sound of this more and more. One of these days, brother. One of these days..."

hehe yea, and they are also doing poetry jams and recitals of Heiku.

THis explains a lot. There are apes among us. Damn dirty ones

With filthy paws.

Have been watching the sequencing of the human gneome project for years, seems like about a decade now. They still haen't fixed my damn allergies.
Cute chimp, and the monkey on the left,too.

This reminds me of an article I read this morning, and what Bush can go do...

The genome process is complete and the missing link has been in the White House for 5 frickin' years!

Gugon's comment reminds me of that hilarious song "Cows With Guns" (you can watch a flash video with it at albinoblacksheep.com)

The cow reads about rebellion. And the chickens help. It's great.

something tells me that the study was NOT funded by the Heritage foundation
