"That script makes no sense!"

So… apparently a monkey can do part of my job — copy editing!  A new study, reported in National Geographic, shows “our genetic relatives can recognize poor grammar.”  We’ve already learned monkeys can form sentences and speak in accents, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.  I just hope they don’t learn to read the teleprompter and ad-lib hurricane coverage.
