Metaphors For Life: Little Ape Repeatedly Pulls Wool Cap Over Her Eyes, Runs Till She Hits Something

March 10, 2015


Aaaaaah, little hairy person in a diaper!

This is a video of Aperil (I see what you did there) the gibbon repeatedly pulling a woolen beanie over her head, then running (technically walking fast) until she hits something. Aperil lives at the Monkey Island Rescue and Sanctuary in Greenwood, Missouri, which sounds like a pretty cool place. This blindly running till you hit something game though -- that sounds like fun. Of course I'm not a gibbon, so I'll have to play the human version: trying to cross the street with my eyes closed. Wish me luck! *closes eyes, runs across street, opens eyes* Whoa, Saint Peter -- what are you doing here? Since when do I live across the street from heaven?

Keep going for the worthwhile video.

    I'd have expected a native English speaker to have known that it's pronounced "zoh-ology", not "zoo-ology"...

  • Bling Nye

    Why are those titties trying to kill that monkey?!

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Ha! The gibbon's name is "Ape-ril."

    What?! This place is just a few miles from my house! Guess what I'm doing this weekend?

    ...if you said, "getting arrested for trespassing after being accosted by primates," you're right!

  • Ed

    Be careful, primates instinctively attack the eyes, face, and genitals first.

    There go my weekend plans.

    Although, little do they do I.

    My wife and I went to the Erie zoo during out 3 or 4 day honeymoon and there was a baby orangutan who I may have taught to play peek-a-boo. I had a hooded sweatshirt on and pulled it over my face, waited a couple seconds and then watched. The baby orangutan took the blanket he or she had and started doing the same thing and of course suddenly that enclosure was surrounded by people watching the cute little ape play peek-a-boo (not to say I taught the ape how to play the game... Might have already known and was just messing with me).

    I think maybe creationist did evolve directly from these guys.

    What does this have to do with Geek stuff or Technologie hence the name 'Geekologie'. Seems kinda out of place

  • captaindash

    Nature=Science. Amusement=behaviour=science.

    Sheldon loves monkeys.

  • dougfunnay

  • steve holt

    the tall ape with the tank top and floppy mammaries is kinda gross

  • GeneralDisorder

    You'd still do it...

  • steve holt

    watched it over 200X, those sound effects get funnier every time

  • Tyguy

    All cute monkey stuff aside, that house probably smells awful.

  • Meh

    And people say we're more evolved..
