We Also Know Wasps Are Sexually Aroused By Pate

This is easily one of the funniest headlines I've come across in ages. I'm wondering how hard it would be to swap specialties. Being an authority on imprecise probability isn't nearly as cool-sounding as becoming a "monkey-annoyance expert".

I'd also like to know just how long this has been going on. In my head these mavens of monkey mislike must have a list pinned up in a lab somewhere:

  • Snakes
  • Birds
  • Fire
  • Squirrels
  • Flying squirrels
  • Flying squirrels that are also on fire
  • Old age
  • Financial uncertainty
  • Younger, cooler monkeys taking their monkey woman
  • Nuclear war
  • That AIDS thing finally coming back to bite them
  • No bananas
