Wow, great job Johnnie-come-lately chimps. I've been putting grass stalks in my ear since WAY before it got popular over there.

A brilliant piece of Mudede.

Dian Fossey recorded young gorillas clapping in the wild, with the behavior occasionally spreading to their friends.

One again Charles is not as clever as he thinks. Humans have been putting grass in their ears for quite a while already (bamboo is a grass).

Grass, unlike Q-tips, doesn't come with printed warnings:
WARNING: Use only as directed. Entering the ear canal could cause injury. Keep out of reach of children.
Chimps, like people, hate nanny-state overreaching.

Also, eargasms.

And thus continues the steady decline of chimp culture.

I dunno, Charles. That grass is looking a little 2013 to me.

It is said that a human baby (clearly one of the most useless creatures in the history of mammalian evolution)
Why do you think human babies are useless? If you think they are so useless, then clearly you think human intelligence is useless too. The evolutionary adaptations that made human babies so useless in your eyes are the same ones that make adults humans so intelligent.

Good Morning Charles,
"Imitation is the most sincerest form of flattery". Wow, these critters are like us.

14
The only thing you should ever put in your ear is your elbow.

12) exactly. There is greatness in being useless.
16
Hipster chimps did it before it was mainstream.

A useless but great post.
