News from the Natural World: Do Monkeys have funerals? My lord, you humans ask some weird questions of arch leader Google. We dive into some more strange questions asked about Monkeys.
Google has ruled the human race since 1998. The American search engine company, founded in 1998 by Sergey Brin and Larry Page, wrestled rulership from the humans and has dominated its societies ever since. Humans worship at the altar of this mercurial liege and pray to it every single day. They beg of it, they worship it and their prayers echo the sounds of a thousand prattling keyboards. They ask questions like”How do I lose weight fast?” or “What time is it?” In addition, they ask instructions “How to screenshot on a mac” or “How do I kill my stepmother?”. It seems that humans expect Google to answer all their questions.
So it comes as no shock that humans should turn their endless questions onto the animal kingdom. Monkeys in particular. Long have humans seen a resemblance in their monkey cousins and they reserve some of their silliest questions for these denizens. We decided to ask a Monkey the answers to the most common google questions…
Do Monkeys Have Funerals?
“Not like you humans do, all dressed in black, singing weird songs and eating limp cheese sandwiches. No, no we don’t do that. But we do grieve, we also care for the dying members of our troop. Sometimes we will carry our dead, my Auntie carried young Shaun around for a couple of days when he passed away. Some Monkeys make a little raft out of banana leaves, lay the monkey on it and set it on fire. Very creative.”
