Congressional Animals!

There is a reason that a group of baboons is called a congress.

Tell me if this doesn’t describe America’s political system.

 

According to MSN.com,

The boozing starts from 7am. Though large amounts of chimps are often drunk, the sessions are orderly, even sociable. A skinful later, and always before nightfall, enough is enough and they rest.

The west African chimps were observed in their natural forest habitat from 1995 to 2012. The action, captured on video, centered around raffia palms. Local communities harvest sugary sap from the trees, which ferments into a rich, alcoholic brew in hours.

See. A bunch of monkeys figuring out how to profit from the work of others, then doing it all over again the next day.
