How adorably disconcerting! Or is it disconcertingly adorable? Either way, awww!


#3

The monkey doesn't appear to enjoying the outing.

"I can't put my arms down!"

"You can put your arms down when you get to the zoo."


#5

heh. monkeys are funny!


#6

I see that someone has already made the obligatory Randy from A Christmas Story reference.


#7

No! Don't lick the fencepost!


#8

the monkey hops like the lunar astronauts did. maybe they used monkeys instead.


#9

this makes me feel sick


#10

Who says the uncanny valley doesn't exist?


#11

I'm reminded of some mutant little creature in a Richard Matheson novel. So I'm really creeped out right now after watching this.


#12

I'm not sure if this is cute, or if it's animal cruelty.


#13

Better than abducting a baby from a maternity ward I guess.


#14

No one should ever "own" a non human primate. They aren't pets. They aren't "just a member of the family."


#15

What? Why not? Assuming a nominal degree of care and respect due any living creature we take responsibility for, what differentiates 'non-human primates' from any other animal, human primates included?


#16

Because who own primates as pets treat them as if they are baby humans, and they are not. People may say they love their dog or cat like a child, but they don't feed them in high-chairs or put them in baby human clothes and make them walk upright in the snow.

Monkeys aren't baby humans and it's cruel to treat them that way.
