Monkey See, People Do

Creationists, who are often grouped together with the "family values" crowd, might want to reconcile their views on our simian cousins with the fact that gibbons are apparently quite faithful.

Francis points me to an article about a "gibbon-style wedding" between two conservationists in Thailand, who exchanged "happy monkey calls" instead of vows. The marriage is destined for success as the groom told a reporter, "Once the gibbon has chosen a mate it will not philander."

The bride and groom later sued the caterer after 200 guests slipped on banana peels during the cocktail hour.
