New Study Reveals Improved Monkey-Penguin Relations.....

Lexington, KY-A study, published today in the Journal of Anthropology, appears to reverse a century of scientific consensus on the interactions between monkeys and penguins.

"If you had spoken to a primatologist or a sphenisciologist prior to this publication, they would have told you of the intense hatred between the two species," Zoologist Adam Sasaki explained. "It's difficult to accept these findings because the evidence up till now has pointed in a very different direction. But their study design is flawless. It looks like monkeys and penguins get along pretty well."

But one scientist, cryptozoologist Lars Pinkerton, is recommending caution in interpreting the findings in the paper. "One study isn't enough to warrant the 180 degree change in opinion that appears to be going on. You have to look at the entirety of the literature on the subject. Anecdotally, I've never seen a monkey and a penguin together in the same room. Coincidence?"
