A Monkey Can't Get a Word in Edgewise.

So maybe you've heard about the outrage coming from the outrage-based community over an editorial cartoon which made use of a well-known cliche that happens to feature a monkey. We have a black president now, after all, so the Keepers of the Language are mandating that all stylebooks must be updated to prevent the word "monkey" from appearing within any proximity of anything Obama has ever had anything to do with.

But what does the simian-based community think of this flap? Their opinion seems to have been lost in the all-signal-no-noise sputtering of the race-baiting jerkasses. Bobo would like to make his feelings known, dammit!

NOTE: Three things for the sake of clarity:

1) Yes, I am aware that chimps are apes, not monkeys.

2) Since Pelosi was the driving force behind the bill, the whole thing seems rather moot, if you ask me. That is, unless "monkey" is also a slur for "rubber-faced blue-blooded skeezebags from San Francisco."

UPDATE:

3) PACKAGE! *snicker*
