It's been less than a week since my Breast Milk Ice Cream post -- now it comes out that there's a black market for CHIMP MEAT.
Yes, that's right, somebody is using our little monkey friends for food.
Ordinarily, I'm OK with people eating most things that are edible, and I understand that in come countries Fido is on the menu. While I wouldn't do it, I'm OK with people who do.
But this is too far. Chimps are, genetically speaking, about 95% - 98% identical to humans. I'm sorry, but that's almost the same percentage of some dorm-mates of mine in college! And that comes too close to cannibalism for me to be comfortable with it.
