MONTY AND THE MONKEY.

Hello good fine people.

Why would anyone make the dumb mistake of keeping a chimpanzee at home as a pet?! Wonderfully intelligent creatures, but they're wild man! I suppose not all these animals lose their marbles and attack other humans, but they are known to be very aggressive at times,
and when one of these things throws a tantrum, WATCH OUT! Y'all heard by now I'm sure, about the woman whose pet monkey of 14 years went off on her good friend and nearly mauled the poor lady to death! MY GOD MAN! The story and chilling 911 phone call are here. What disturbs me the most about this story is that this woman even slept with the chimp in her bed! That's kind of creepy, and I honestly pray she didn't have sex with it as well! AHAHHAHAHA! Did you know that chimpanzees are our closest relative and that we share about 93% of the same DNA? Wild crazy stuff huh?! I look in the mirror and can often see my resemblance to my chimp brothers in the wild. LOL! OH! Really awesome footage here of chimps attacking other fellow chimps in the wild to protect their territory! Stick with the clip, because the end is quite remarkable and almost shocking.

James Dean wa
s certainly one handsome fellow, but I'm obsessed right now with Montgomery Clift. He's one of those movie stars of the past that has been in my subconscious for years, but only now do I realize how fascinating this dude really was, not to mention those awesome good looks. OH MONTY! That's Monty gracing the upper left corner of my blog by the way. Monty dated women I believe, but he was also very much into men, so I guess he's considered bisexual, although rumor has it that when that awesome lady Liz Taylor was first introduced to him, she instantly knew that Monty was really gay and she quickly became good friends with him, because Liz has always been an incorrigible fag hag. LOLOL! Sadly, Clift had a very tragic existence marred by rampant drug and alcohol abuse, and then at age 35, he was in a bad car accident which disfigured him and made him even more unhappy for the rest of his life. He was only 45 when he died of a massive heart attack. Very Judy Garlandish-type Hollywood story huh? Thank God for film and all that good footage we still have of Monty in his prime.

God, even all these years later, this classic f*cking show is still funny to me:

Years ago, when I was in high school in an advanced placement class, I worked at a Veterinary Medical Laboratory for the Air Force, that had chimps.

These were not the cute little chips you see on the talk shows - these were mean, nasty, shit-fligging wild animals. Of course, if you were kept in a cage all your life, you'd be a nasty, shit-fligging wild animal too.

Also, chimps are ten times stronger than human beings.

I really couldn't stand the Golden Girls ... until I suddenly got "old" and understood where the laughs were coming from(!)

Man oh man, Mr. WAT, you made my birthday one hell of a special day with that video...I watched all of it and giggled and laughed and scratched. Thanks for sharing!

The chimp story was really unsettling and makes you wonder what sort of idiots would have them as "housepets". I was Clift obsessed in my early 20s and bought every movie he made or book written about him. One that I've never been able to track down on VHS or DVD but love is "Lonelyhearts" based on Nathaniel West's "Miss Lonelyhearts" which was a failure at the time but fascinating.

oh wow!! that chimp story is scary...chimps really creep me out

I find it disturbing that many families have chimps as replacements for children - they call them mon-kids. Ick. I know that some of the baby chimps look cute, but they have to wear diapers so they don't crap everywhere. That woman was strange that slept with her chimp - it's just too weird.

I thought Montgomery Cliff was so handsome, but there was something very haunting about him....

I know some people who are plenty more aggressive than any chimp. But it's sad that anyone would in fact keep one as a pet. They share 97% of our chromosomes, but that 3% belongs outside in the wild. Instinct kicks in.

Glad you're back WAT. I was having withdrawals dude. My latino lover returned...

Besos

PS. The Golden Girls rock. Classic.

Last night I checked into Wat Central and watched that Golden Girls clip (very funny) and then sat for a while watching clips about Monty on YouTube. I went through my Monty phase when I was much younger but how shocking to realize that he died when he was my age!! He was at the end and I feel like I've only just begun.
