Orangutans Make Musical Instruments

DATELINE: BORNEO -- Researchers have found that a group comedically gifted orangutans have fashioned what amounts to a musical instrument.

Says the report:
When in a tight situation, the orangutans will strip the leaves off a twig and make a crude musical instrument to alter the calls they use to ward off predators.

Admittedly, I skimmed the rest of the article, but I think I can summarize it for you. You know, what else, uh ... happened.

It seems that as the scientists proceeded deeper into the jungle they found that some of the apes had hand crafted a pipe organ, drum kit, kazoo and a Gibson Les Paul. The most talented of the primates had formed an all-star band. The name of the group roughly translates to "Last Train to Clarksville." Their first gigs were 3 sold out shows before the Orangutan King. They played a 77 minute set followed by 2 encores that included a cover of the Banana Splits Theme. There is a biding war right now between 7 major labels to sign the band.

It was something like that...
