Depressing news of the day

The image “http://www.beastlair.com/postcards/images/animals/orangutan.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

My granny sent me this story which made me very, very sad. It's about the number of species creeping closer to extinction, including the naked ape cousins the gorgillas and the orange tangs.

Gorillas, orangutans, and corals are among the plants and animals which are sliding closer to extinction.

The Red List of Threatened Species for 2007 names habitat loss, hunting and climate change among the causes.

The World Conservation Union (IUCN) has identified more than 16,000 species threatened with extinction, while prospects have brightened for only one.

You naked apes should really do something more about this before the planet adds you to the list. Why spare the ugliest apes?

Wally:
No one said that the ugliest apes were the smartest. In the end I think it will what we cannot not see that does us in. Hopefully the ones that survive will be smarter than the pigs in 1984.

I agree with Mr. Frasier - if we could only *specify* which naked apes should fall into extinction, then we'd be okay. ;-)

Walls!

I like the idea of a joint coalition of the Woober & the Goober! Whatdya say?

I think us taking a crack at the world's problems could only improve the situation.

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Don't forget the ugly apes do try and kill each other though. They really are stupid aren't they?
