Except for one thing: he is not a monkey.

Everybody knows that monkey's generally have tales while apes do not and are usually bigger. There are exceptions, like Barbary monkeys (tailess), and some gibbons, considered lesser apes, are smaller than monkeys such as the Mandrill.

Are baboons like the Mandrills really monkeys? I thought the breakdown of primates went like this: Lemurs, monkeys, baboons, apes (including humans).

But, you see, Mandrills are not baboons, that's where you are going wrong.

In fact, these spectacular primates have a genus all of their own.

:D

(thanks wikipedia!)

On this day in 1935 the world's first parking meter was installed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I predict that in celebration of this the Brit module will be released later today.

I predict that the refresh primates will have to keep refreshing until Friday.

Otherwise the impact of several million AWOL employees around the world could have an unforeseen impact on an already enfeebled economy.

Save the economy! Release it on Friday!
