With Dawn of the Planet of the Apes just around the corner, this couldn’t be a more timely reminder of how things can change.
Remember how dramatic of a moment it was when Caesar from Rise of the Planet of the Apes stands up and yells “NO!” to the treatment of his kind and then mankind gets whipped into submission by their primal cousins?
That moment has already happened in a much more relaxed and quiet way.
Kanzi, a famous Bonobo who’s met Oprah and communicates very comfortably with humans via sign language, has quietly signaled the clock is ticking not by tossing us out by windows or spearing us with broken broom handles. Nope.
He’s roasting marshmallows…
And flipping burgers.
No. Really. He flips burgers too.
