On the literacy of apes

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

On the literacy of apes

Post by Erik_Kowal » Sun Jan 22, 2012 10:25 pm

One day the zookeeper noticed that the orang-utan was reading two books, the Bible and Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species.

In surprise he asked the ape, "Why are you reading those two books?"

"Well," said the orang-utan, "I wanted to know if I was my brother's keeper or my keeper's brother."
