November 24th All Our Uncles Are Monkeys Day

If you are Charles Darwin you will particularly enjoy today. It gets into Evolution and Darwin’s theory written in his 1859 book, “On The Origin Of Species” Perhaps this explains that long lost relative that appeared out of no where! Personally I find the idea a little insulting, not because we may all come from monkeys but because apparently there were no aunts, just uncles studied. To many Darwin’s theory was either proven by Donald Johanson’s and Tom Gray’s discovery of “Lucy” in 1974 or debunked. Either way you do have to admit we humans and monkeys do have a lot in common beyond our love of bananas!

How to celebrate – Invite Uncle Bonzo to lunch. When you visit the zoo watch the monkeys watch you. Go Ape today.
