  1. At the age of 32 he was sold to an animal testing facility. They deemed him too old to be used in testing but kept him in a tiny cage for nine years until he was finally relocated to an animal sanctuary where, partially sighted and arthritic, he would spend the remainder of his life.

  2. So you’re telling me that if I secure a chimpanzee I can teach him to wear a smoking jacket and drink with me? I know what we’re doing today Ferb.

  3. With a big of genetic testing, hormones and a bit of drugs here and there (perhaps with his offspring), a new species could’ve been born, huh?
