Monkey Business.

Pierre Brassau: a champion of modern art. As one critic said:

"Brassau paints with powerful strokes, but also with clear determination. His brush strokes twist with furious fastidiousness. Pierre is an artist who performs with the delicacy of a ballet dancer."

Clearly, this is someone who is pretty spectacular at what they do, also, he's a monkey. Well, an ape, a chimpanzee if you really want to get into it. And get this: his name isn't even Pierre, it's Peter, a 4 year-old chimp who was used by a Swedish journalist named Åke "Dacke" Axelsson, who wanted to see if art critics could tell the difference between avante-garde (French for "bad") modern art and the ape's scrawls.

But art is entirely subjective, so hopefully the guy that spouted that bullshit about Pierre's furious brush strokes didn't feel too embarrassed after the reveal. And if we dig up Warhol we'll find him face down in his coffin, because at a Bonhams auction in 2005, his and Renoir's work did not sell however, Congo the Chimp's work sold for US $26,000.

The Chimpanzee or Pan Troglodytes, is the closest living relative of modern man, known for tearing each other's testicles off, making weapons with sharpened tree limbs, which they use to kill these balls of adorable:

you really can't resist those eyes. (unless you're a chimp)

...fucking up their owner's friends, and general assholism. Hell, remember those news stories when we were kids that an escaped chimpanzee was going down chimneys taking children? (which the bastards are still doing by the way, while INTOXICATED) So I feel it's important that we, as the dominant species, stop this menace before it gets too out of control, they've already learned to make spears, use advanced hunting tactics, and rallying the support of their fellow chimps. If we don't act, It's all over.
