I May Stare At That Picture And Read Those Two Sentences All Weekend


ArsTechnica – A federal judge on Wednesday said that a monkey that swiped a British nature photographer’s camera during an Indonesian jungle shoot and snapped selfies cannot own the intellectual property rights to those handful of pictures. US District Judge William Orrick was tasked with hearing a lawsuit brought by the People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

If PETA wants this monkey to have the same legal status as a person, then would not we almost immediately have to arrest this monkey for theft? Or just being naked in public? Or just for doing it with all the other monkeys in front of everyone, often against the other monkey's will? Those gosh awful things that monkeys seem to do just when people, especially little kids with parents in tow, are walking by? This monkey, thanks to PETA, is now in a person...and in freaking world of trouble. It will need those intellectual property rights to make some money for all its defense attorneys and to have money to buy crackers and pencils in prison.

If a monkey is a person, then is a person a monkey? Can a freak who exposes himself in the park simply claim that it's "natural" for monkeys to do that, and he's really a monkey? Will empathetic monkeys create a METH organization to stand up for creeps in the park? Monkeys for the Ethical Treatment of Humans? "Hey...the guy was just being a monkey, it's what we do".
