Monkey business. It's like an April Fool's joke but I think it's for real.

According to an article in the New York Times, scientists have trained monkeys to gamble. I kid you not. In addition, they've created the proper environment for ... monkey prostitution, yes, monkeys having sex (with other monkeys) for money.

This is simply the funniest thing I've read in months. It's also made me think that it's time to create a new German-style strategy game, in which you train your hordes of ignorant monkeys to recognize the value of money, then slowly open bingo parlors, opium dens, and other places in which your monkeys can spend (and earn) cash.

Best quote: "You should really think of a capuchin as a bottomless stomach of want. You can feed them marshmallows all day, they'll throw up and then come back for more."
