Miss The Monkey
Yes. I hate drawing obituary cartoons and yet, I still kinda sort of drew one about a monkey. Actually, is a chimpanzee a monkey or is that gorillas that aren’t monkeys? I should know this since I used to work in a zoo and had to feed lemurs everyday (we didn’t have chimps or gorillas but we did have a beer drinking orangutan).
It’s really weird to see people mourning a dictactor who’s responsible for starving them. The North Korean propaganda machine but be running on all cylinders to make that happen.
It’s also kinda weird that Cheetah lived to be around 80. Chimps have a life expectancy of around 40 years. That monkey must have had a better health plan than most humans.
Also, if you don’t know who Cheetah is and you missed the news today (it was on CNN as soon as I woke up), Cheetah was the chimp in the Tarzan movies made in the 30′s. That’s a very long time ago. That was one old monkey.
Here’s the rough.
