Still on the loose in every which way

"Poker is a game of people. It's not the hand I hold, it's the people that I play with." - Amarillo Slim

A chimpanzee, named Mikey, considered by some to be the worlds best non-human poker player that isn't a machine, will play in the 2006 World Series of Poker main event.

Mikey's trainers claim he recognizes the shapes and colors of suits, and favors an agressive playing style, frequently going 'all-in'.

Extra security is being provided to Mikey in the event he wins any money, in case the roaming chimp with the club shows up and tries to beat and rob him.

  1. Isn't this how Planet of the Apes got started -- life imitates art.
    I'm staying by my radio (Sean Hannity's show) waiting for instructions on how to handle this threat from the Chimpanazis. Personally, I think bombing Syria and getting some spider monkeys to vote in free and fair elections are the ways to handle this. What say you, sir?

  2. I don't see it as a threat, I see it as an opportunity. For the right amount of banannnannnannas I'm willing to sell the chimp an aluminium bat. Or an AK. Or some yellow cake. Whatever. It's chimpanarchzee in the USA or something.

  3. I see your point. I guess it's only fair. We've given the Democrats and now the Republicans their chances to rule. The theory of evolution would say that it's now the Chimps' turn.
