If You Like Pina Coladas

Headline: Online dating is planned for orangutans
Zookeepers in the Netherlands are planning to hook up Dutch and Indonesian orangutans over the Internet and believe the link could at some stage be used as an online dating service where apes could get to know one another and keepers could work out whether they would be compatible mates.
Is there any difference between this and e-Harmony? Do you the think the successful couples will do commercials for the service after they've dated for a while? I picture them sitting on the couch next to one another ooohh-ing and eeeEEEee-ing about how they went bananas over the other at first glance.

Judging from the description, I'm not so sure if this is an actual dating service or an escort service. Hopefully, Heidi Fleiss won't get wind of it because only God knows what would happen in the Hollywood Hills with a gimmick like that!

Then again, some people have to go about getting dates any which way they can.

agh damn it. I was just calmly tucking into a nice pot of Rice pudding, read the bit about Heidi and then burst out laughing depositing rice pudding all over the couch.


(great post btw)

Thanks Mayden. "I married a monkey" has must-see-sitcom written all over it!! and as long as your husband isn't into yoga and has half a brain, you're doing just fine.

A few smartass comments...

I want none of this monkey business.

Don't ape humans you ape.

....and now we have a beautiful tree to live in.

...and the tail ends happily.

I got better dates when I climbed a date palm.

29 Demensions of Orangutang compatability....

1) Banana preference, green or yellow?

2) Color, would you date an orangutang that was more brown than orange?

3) Public scratching of nether regions, for or against?

4) Do you mind dating someone behind bars?

5) Have you ever been mad enough to throw your fecal material at someone.

And thats just five demensions. Orangutang dating is complex to say the least.

SJ: the last was my favorite. ha. :)

DWO: All of those are great, but let's not forget to ask about swingers.
