I blame Mackerel.
Who's the daddy?
there was this old piano atop a Scottish hill -- I think someone should post about it but I guess that no one will
it's not that I couldn't it's not that I wouldn't and god, you know, it's not cause I shouldn't it's simply because I'm the laziest poster in town
I dug a whole With my bananaguard In my wedding dress For a canard
the bride looked lovely dressed in white with his whiskers poking through his veil the groom clutched his arm to hold him upright for he swayed like the mast of a ship in a gale which was not so surprising after all that ale
A Lady fair, of lineage high, Was loved by an Ape, in the days gone by. The Maid was radiant as the sun, The Ape was a most unsightly one, So it would not do-- His scheme fell through, For the Maid, when his love took formal shape, Express'd such terror At his monstrous error, That he stammer'd an apology and made his 'scape, The picture of a disconcerted Ape. With a view to rise in the social scale, He shaved his bristles and he docked his tail, He grew mustachios, and he took his tub, And he paid a guinea to a toilet club, But it would not do, The scheme fell through-- For the Maid was Beauty's fairest Queen, With golden tresses, Like a real princess's, While the Ape, despite his razor keen, Was the apiest Ape that ever was seen! He bought white ties, and he bought dress suits, He crammed his feet into bright tight boots-- And to start in life on a brand-new plan, He christen'd himself Darwinian Man! But it would not do, The scheme fell through-- For the Maiden fair, whom the monkey crav'd, Was a radiant Being, With brain far-seeing-- While Darwinian Man, though well-behav'd, At best is only a monkey shav'd! --W.S. Gilbert, 1884
Bound to promote some confusion in your mind, eh, InsolentChimp? By the by, cute picture--how old were you when that was taken? I can't believe there ever was any doubt about the interbreeding of human and chimps. Damn, if you people will screw Quid's corpse, I'm sure you'd get it on with a proto-chimp.
My paleo prof and I discussed this story. He asks: "How much alike would the two need to be to see each other as potential mates?" I replied: "Have you ever done a Google image search for 'puppy love'? Believe me, it doesn't take much."
it was many and many a moon ago as I sat in my favorite tree and a monkey maiden with dark eyes aglow climbed down to sit next to me we cuddled and squeezed and did what we pleased for she was a free chimpanzee she hugged me and then I was caught as she batted her lashes at me she gave not a hoot when I grew all hot as we clasped on the branch of that tree for she was a she and I somehow forgot she was not exactly like me

I admit - I just tried that (searching for "puppy love" on google image search). I turned safe search off, and girded my guts to be shocked/discusted.
is the sort of
I found. (Very safe for work). I'm so glad it was. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. I even (in my cynicism) went further into the results, expecting them to get much worse. But the only not-safe-for-work image I saw was a rather sweet one of two young men in metaphorical puppy love, and nary a innocent animal in sight.
That said, I'm still in fear that this post will inspire someone to make up for the lack of explicit imagery in this case - and I don't imagine that it isn't out there. I'm just glad it's rare enough not to appear easily.
My human origins prof. once told the class what she thought about sexual attraction. According to her musings, it isn't the face, it's all whether you're an inverted triangle or an hourglass. Of course, she may have spent
too much time with the orangutans
herself... ...well, at least enough time not to be able to figure out how to put a tape into a VCR.
