deception


Nothing says it more than this picture:

The punkeys have infiltrated our military!

The question is...Does that soldier know there's a monkey attached to him? They are very sneaky!

 It’s not just the Taliban they need to worry about!

When will humankind wake up and smell the monkey poop? It’s obvious that the monkey menace is testing us and with each incident, their information base grows. But as the people in Ahmedabad (Occupied Territory) believe, it’s just some cute, fuzzy monkey scared and stranded. From the Times of India:

It was a strange moment for Ahmedabad Fire and Emergency Services (AFES) officials when they got a call from Bapunagar stating that a monkey has made its way on the top of a cell phone tower. Officials rescued the monkey after an operation of half-an-hour on Saturday. According to officials, the incident took place at Yogeshwar Park Society where a private mobile service providers tower is located. According to some eye witnesses, a group of monkeys came to the place, out of which one climbed the ladder and reached on the top of the tower.

“The monkey was so scared by the group gathered near him that he could not come down on his own. We extended a ladder to him, but it hesitated. After some time he used the ladder to come down and ran in the opposite direction,” a fire brigade official said.

Officials used 20-ft ladder used for rescue operations in the times of calamities and fire incidents.

This monkey wasn’t scared to come down; he was scared to get caught! Like any terrorist organization, the group convinces some poor soul to commit the act against their target. That way only one person is caught and the rest can flee into the woods to plot again!

As this picture reveals, punkeys have been trying to enter human society for a least 100 years. From shorpy.com:

This poor disillusioned monkey owner is going to jail for his pet marmoset. Is this heroic or part of the monkeys menace plan to place as many people in prison, out of the way, for their attack? You decide. From CityNews:

Never get in the way of a man and his monkey. That seems to be the lesson one man was trying to teach the justice system in the U.S.

But despite his best efforts, it didn’t quite work.

When David Grigorian, a 43-year-old resident from Van Nuys, California, got a marmoset monkey as a pet a few years back, he quickly fell in love with the creature. But he didn’t have a permit for the exotic animal and a court ordered him to get rid of it.

The controversy began last January when cops investigated Grigorian on an unrelated matter. After arriving at his home, they found the animal but not the permits he needed to keep it. He was ordered to get rid of it and promised he would.

A face only a punkey could love!

Somehow, Punkeys have managed to generate a lot of pro-ape PR from the science community. These evil simians are manipulating the system to gain our trust. And as soon as they do…WATCH OUT!

From The Telegraph:

Animals can be altruistic, according to a study that has found monkeys enjoy giving.

The researchers discovered that capuchin monkeys – like humans – find generosity a satisfying experience. They offered the monkeys a choice of selfishly rewarding themselves with food, or giving some to another capuchin as well.

When paired with a monkey they knew, the capuchins were more likely to choose the “pro-social” sharing option, but were more selfish when paired with a stranger.

The researchers believe the pleasure of seeing a fellow creature happy is behind the drive for sharing, which is common to primate species.

Frans de Waal of the Yerkes National Primate Research Centre at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, said: “The fact the capuchins predominantly selected the pro-social option must mean seeing another monkey receive food is satisfying or rewarding for them.

“We believe pro-social behavior is empathy-based. Empathy increases in both humans and animals with social closeness, and in our study, closer partners made more pro-social choices. They seem to care for the welfare of those they know.”

It follows a recent study that showed increased activity in reward centers of the brain after humans gave to charity. (more…)

What do you call a female that screams for the men, only to keep quiet from the other women so she can have all the men to herself? Normally the word “whore” would spring to mind. Well, that’s exactly what female chimps do in the wild. And depending on the male, she’ll go wild for high ranking males while barely making a peep for lowly joe shmoes. From Science News:

When a chimp has sex in the forest, will she make a sound?

Depends in part on who’s listening, literally, says a scientist who has spent months recording chimp sex sounds in the wild.

With lots of other females within earshot, a female chimp typically doesn’t give a call, says Simon Townsend of the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. With a largely male audience, though, she’s more likely to give what primatologists call copulation squeaks or screams.

And partners matter. Even if she is not fertile, she’s more likely to vocalize when she’s with a high-ranking male than with some low ranker. The benefit of this strategy could be that she avoids attacks from other females while confusing males about who’s going to be the dad, Townsend and his colleagues propose in the June PLoS ONE.
