That’s no monkey…

My kids have a puzzle of “jungle creatures”.

I hate it1. I do not hate it because there is no jungle in the world in which these animals all live together2.

I hate it because this is NOT a monkey.

If you can fit “squirrel monkey” in this space…

…surely wedging “chimpanzee” into that space isn’t asking too much.

In related news, this is NOT a seal.

NOTES
1. My lovely wife and the mother of my children will not let me throw the puzzle away. She says it will provide “teachable moments”. She is right.

Daddy, what is a ‘goddemchimp’?

2. With the possible exception of the island in Swiss Family Robinson, which is fiction people!
