Certainly. Indeed it might be the ultimate foundation of all politics.

Did you read about that research demonstrating that apes would rather watch bottoms on television than drink orange juice?

I look forward to learning whether they ogle only lady apes's. CDB

I don't think male apes's were on the menu.
The research abstract says that male apeses (actually rhesus monkeys) will 'sacrifice fluid' to ogle lady apes's.
They will also forego a bevvy to gaze at the faces of high-status animals of either sex but they have to be given a couple of extra shots of juice before they will look at the faces of low-status animals.

This proves that rhesus monkeys would enjoy Footballer's Wives but would have to be paid to watch Coronation Street.

Was thinking more in terms of those of lady
smooth apes, who show up more on TV and
who actually have something to call a bottom.
But I see from your reference (thank you)
that it's an ape thing.

Better they than I, in both cases. CDB
No, please, thank you. It's an interesting book that you've ... would be on topic here. Apparently, neither have you. CDB

Did you read about that research demonstrating that apes would rather watch bottoms on television than drink orange juice?

So? There are bottoms I'd rather watch on tv than drink orange juice, too.

Mike.

Baboon bottoms? Mandrill bottoms?
Mandrills and bishops have purple in common.

Ditto. (That probably should have been 'Footballers' Wives', by the way, though I suppose it's possible that the prog is about the travails of a sporting bigamist. I've never seen it.)
