WORLD MONKEY DAY
Monkey Business: Animal Rights and Human Responsibilities
Jennifer Molidor, ALDF’s Staff Writer
Though we may like to distance ourselves from the “animal kingdom,” by placing ourselves above it, again the truth is that we are neither kings nor paupers. We are a part of that animal community – and the language that shapes our worldviews reflects our fascination with our animal nature.
The Animal Kingdom
Bear with me. And quit horsing around!
Yes, I’m talking to you. I mean, just look what the cat dragged in.
What’s wrong? Ants in your pants? Bee in your bonnet? Cat got your tongue?
I’m sorry, am I badgering you? Don’t be such a chicken!
You know you’re foxy! You big turkey! You’re a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Especially when you make puppy eyes!
In fact, you’re cock of the walk! The cat’s meow!
Though you’re also a bull in a china shop.
You’re like the elephant in the room! A fly on the wall. A fish out of water. You really get my goat.
At least, after my cat-nap. Because I’m so dog tired. Let’s not open that can of worms.
It’s all monkey business.
