Discovery reports that a recent study indicates showing monkeys instructional videos that demonstrate how to open artificial fruit taught monkeys how to open artificial fruit.
We assume “artificial fruit” is the secret ingredient to our favorite fruit-flavored-drinks. And now it’s in the hands of monkeys.
3 Videos We Hope Aren’t Used To Instruct Monkeys
1. The end of the original Planet of the Apes. The last thing we need to do is teach monkeys to not use spoiler alerts.
2. Videos of someone defending a PhD thesis about showing videos to monkeys. (We don’t want to depress monkeys when the PhD candidate starts crying midway through.)
3. Any recycled VHS video of a Clint Eastwood movie featuring monkey road trips. Our roads are congested enough with back-to-school-non-monkey traffic!
