The Monkey Chow Diaries

Now that Blogger seems to be somewhat functional again, I'd like to point out a very funny, and actually somewhat poignant website: The Monkey Chow Diaries.

In short, this guy, Adam, on what appears to be a dare/experiment, has decided to eat nothing buy Monkey Chow for a week (basically dog food, but for primates). He chronicals his week through videos posted on the link above and also through a blog. I encourage you to read it all and watch the videos. They're very funny. More importantly though, what turned out to be a stupid experiment by some guy, egged on by his buddy, has brought international attention to the people in this world, and there are more than anyone would like to think about, who are actually starving. Although Adam may be "starving", eating monkey chow for a week is more nutrition than millions of people in this world are getting.

Anyway, I'll be getting off my horse now. Check out the site though, it's funny and, more importantly, he talks a lot about the consistency and smell of his poo. I know that's all you clowns want to know about anyway.

Special thanks to Trizzout for pointing me to the Monkey Chow Diaries.

That's really gross.

I had neighbors who ate dog food.
