The Biggest Monkey of all
It is with a great source of amusement that academics past and present believe that somehow us, the big ape, is different from the rest of the animal kingdom.
Take the Monkey Forest at Trentham Gardens by example; it might be a little tedious for some because after all, it seems all our closest ancestors do all day is eat grass, defecate, engage in social grooming and run up a tree or two squawking.
On the other hand, do human beings (the so-called advanced specie) do much more with their days? Well, they seem also to be preoccupied with gorging anything they can get their hands on too don't they?
Take Nigella Lawson for instance on her upmarket cookery show. Yummy!

She and others like her peddle the myth that it is almost upper class to butcher another animal and then dress a piece of its flesh up and call it Beer-Braised Pork Knuckles with Caraway and Garlic (or something else as pompously ludicrous).
Yes, this detracts from the fact that we are base flesh eaters just like the rest of the carnivores.
What's more, Nigella seems to delight in rolling the animal innards out with her hands, filling it with some fancy herb or other. It's propagated as being sophisticated.
Yes, us, the big Ape; we are the biggest monkey of them all aren't we?
