I ams what I ams.


Not in the least.


I bet you are white and an idiot but I will leave you at that. If I call you racist you will claim you can't be racist because you "supported" the last royal wedding and you think Obama was a great president. If I ask you what was your response 9 years ago before Obama was president... you will go numb for lack of an answer. Goodbye Clueless Racist.

Can you say clueless?

@XxDARKNEXUSxX - another clueless comment

@gater fixed.... I added you Clueless to Racist. Trying to help out the Clueless Racist when I can.

@gater, @XxDARKNEXUSxX Per it request I added Clueless to Racist.... it must be satisfied now watching roseanne show rerun for sure.


Love and relate to this song from 1970 by the Kinks, Apeman:

Forgot about this one 🙂


It depends upon how it's meant and toward whom it is used. I am neither proud nor ashamed to be a Great Ape. I'm just a member of the Family.

@XxDARKNEXUSxX Very true. I abhor racism, and observe, ironically enough, that it is the most bigoted of our species that are the most likely to metaphorically fling their own poo.


In the 50's and 60's in the Uk it was common to hear parents call their child "a cheeky monkey" or a "daft apeth" it was actually quite endearing.

Noticed this is not the 50's, 60's and is not UK, this is trump ameriKKKa.

True but even in the last few years there were countless memes about President "Dubyu" Bush being a shaved chimpanzee and even your current President Cheeto had a long running public feud over Bill Maher calling him an Orangutan.
My point being that time, context and above all intent determine whether any word, phrase or epithet applied to another is offensive, humourous or abusive as in recent high profile cases.

@LenHazell53 Seems to me you are fixated with monkeys and chimpanzees, well... if you are not "Boy", son of tarzan... wake the hell up or if you are "Boy", move back to Africa were you may belong. This is an ameriKKKan issue, if we need your 2 guineas, we know were to find you, I think, we will know were to look for you, hanging in a tree somewhere in a ex colony of the uk.

@GipsyOfNewSpain you have some serious anger issues there old fellow, calm down before you have a stroke.

@LenHazell53 is not anger is just another cracker from across the pond that can't mind his own business. I will dance on your grave. Mind you, last person I said that died Nov 18 2017 seven years my junior. I will dance on your grave the monkey to make you happy in the afterlife.

@LenHazell53 That freaking dude is daft, blocked him a long time ago.


If anyone should be offended, it's the apes ! Wiser than us humans...


Seeing as we are all descended from ape like creatures why would I be offended.

Agree - we have a long and amazing ancestry - we should be proud of that.
