Drunk as a Monkey

Wow. Drunken monkeys. And I always thought it was just a saying (or a variant on the monkey style of kung fu--seriously). It turns out that, in Budapest, the apes* really do get wine. Why would you give them wine? Apparently, it helps boost their red blood cell counts.

The zookeepers don't give them a lot--just a bit at a time, mixed in with their tea.

So you've got alcohol and caffeine in your gorillas. When do you just move right on to weed?

*Note to all persnickety types out there: Yes, I know that apes aren't monkeys. Shut up and live with the pretty language.
