Smart Monkeys and Apes

As it turns out, monkeys are smarter than us. And apes are way beyond us. The proof is in the pudding. This chimp's name is Bart. He runs a grocery store that employs seven illegal immigrants and three high school kids. The incentives for employees are food fights on breaks, and finger painting for an hour two times a week. He also is very generous with bonuses, paying his top employees in banana creme pies and lower back massages. 

This next photo is Phil. Phil is a newspaper editor. Here he can be seen checking reading an advertisement that was placed perpendicularly to the text. He is not just literate, but extremely meticulous with his reading, often reading 50 articles before lunch, with only two percent of those making the final cut.
Our last smart ape is Bobby. He lives in Borneo and likes to go stick fishing. It is similar to spear fishing but less invasive to the fish. Bobby actually smacks the fish upside the head before catching them, thus stunning them. The typical spear fisherman causes irreparable bodily harm to the fish before catching it. Good job Bobby.

I am, without further ado, going to culturally enlighten you with perhaps the funniest Japanese game show ever contrived. Forget about Samurais, Ninjas, rice paddies, sushi, or the emperor. THIS is what Japanese culture is all about:

And because one clip is never enough:

Easter Text Messages

So today is Easter Sunday, and I am Christian. So, it's an important holiday to me. And, apparently it is also important to other people. While some people in the Philippines are flagellating and scourging themselves, some even doing mock crucifixions and resurrections, my friends just send me text messages. I think that's nice. And, not quite so messy. Fortunately I do not have any friends who have sent me videos of themselves reenacting the passion of Christ. However, what is one to do when receiving a mass text that says, "Happy Easter!" with possibly a million smiley's after it? Here is a similar conundrum:
