No longer just the favorite of gentlemen - now even orangutans prefer blondes, although they have a taste for the skeez-factor. A 31 year old male orangutan in the Amsterdam zoo was brought in for special breeding purposes, but to the frustration of the red-butted females in his environ, the only females who made his bobber float were the blonde-and-tattoed humans who paraded through the zoo. Apparently the keeper who reared him from infancy(baby ape-dom? what do you call it?) was a tattoed blonde and this has sparked his little fetish thingy. They're going to reunite him with a female he had relations with previously in England, hoping to re-spark their love connection.
They need to give that monkey some tequila.
Meanwhile, you can buy a modern abstract painting by an elephant - click here for details. A not-for-profit group has trained painting elephants in various Asian countries, particularly Thailand, and these elephants are singing for their supper, as it were. The money fetched by the canvases goes to support these elephants and their sweet, cushy lifestyles as rich and famous temple elephants, or some such. Dude, these paintings look at LEAST as good as a Jackson Pollock.
I think they're cute.
