Monkey Mom? . . .I'm sorry, but this is just wrong . . .

If you didn't see the show about the empty nesters that purchase - excuse me - adopt monkeys and raise them as their children on PRIMETIME: The Outsiders the other night, you have got to watch this video.

Here's another link to a video that includes a piece about Angelle Sampey's "son", Andy. Angelle is a professional motorcycle drag racer that wanted a baby but because of her job as a drag racer, having a human child wasn't an option: http://jezebel.com/5021076/primetime-exposes-the-dangers-of-satisfying-baby-lust-with-monkeys

After viewing, please come back and share your thoughts about this whole *monkids* thing.

Why a monkey and not a dog or cat? I don't agree with it. I don't think that, in general, it is fair to the animal.
