Primate Sanctuary Goes Ape Over Web Site's Monkey Business

from the ah,-headline-fun dept

Welcome to August, when the news is slow, and all the positively wacky stories rise to the top. With all this talk of outsourcing programming jobs to India, someone set up a slightly amusing spoof site, which offers to let his well-trained chimpanzees and baboons program for even less money. On the spoof site, he mentions the Iowa Primate Learning Sanctuary, and that group is not amused. They are complaining and have asked that all references to their organization be removed from the site. Of course, thanks to these news reports, the Primate Learning Sanctuary will be forever associated with programming primates.
