What the %&$# Is Wrong With People?

"Charlie the chimp started smoking when some visitors to Mangaung Zoo [in South Africa] threw him lit cigarettes. Zoo spokesman Qondile Khedama said Charlie had become an institution, entertaining thousands of visitors every year with his antics." - from a BBC News story about Charlie the chimp's death. Ha, yeah, addiction is hilarious. Those crazy chimps and their antics. Despite his unhealthy habit, Charlie died of old age, not lung cancer, though he was "on serious medications and in and out of the vet." I think the best way to show our superiority over other species is to lock 'em up in cages and force our bad habits on them. Way to go, humans! Whoot!
