More news of punkeys picking up bad habits. From Thaindian News:

Keepers of a zoo in China are trying really hard to make a resident chimpanzee quit smoking.

Philly got addicted to the habit months earlier by picking up cigarette butts discarded by visitors in Zhengzhou, Henan province.

The chimp fell prey to the smokes and would squeal for cigarettes every time she needed a drag, reports China Daily.

My wife did the same thing when she quit.

And to make matters more worse, the primate reportedly even developed a taste for specific brands. It picked the more expensive one when presented with two choices.

Ah…the sweet taste of tobacco. I guess it could be worse. He’s not hooked on hash like the monkey from last week!
