(PhysOrg.com) -- A lot of people who have gone to the zoo have become the targets of feces thrown by apes or monkeys, and left no doubt wondering about the so-called intellectual capacity of a beast that would resort to such foul play. Now however, researchers studying such behavior have come to the conclusion that throwing feces, or any object really, is actually a sign of high ordered behavior.

Exactly. “Researchers” are trying to improve the image of the defecating fleabaggers.

That can’t be right. Look at all the poop the pols throw day in and day out and we know they aren’t intelligent.

but they’re smart enough to somehow get their constituents to keep re-electing them. How can a group of people with a 20% approval rating continue to get re-elected?

I wonder if Hillary fully considered her options before throwing those ashtrays at Bill.

These chimps are behaving like the OWS crowd. Just how does this make either class “intelligent”?

By that logic, the occupy retard who crapped on the Police car must be a genius.

The Royal Society study linked to in the article raises some interesting points — the ONLY creatures that throw anything are humans and chimps (and apes, etc.). Knowing how and why to throw something at someone or something else is apparently an intellectual milestone. Most MLB pitchers must be geniuses.

If throwing feces demonstrates high intelligence, then the idiots in D.C must be geniuses, considering the volume of sh*t they shovel at us on a daily basis.

With all the gaffes by the smartest president ever Rush played yesterday, expect The Kenyan to implement this practice next, to prove his underappreciated intelligence.

OWS will take note of this development in hopes of increasing their demonstrable intelligence.

Going back to 4th grade math class:

Poo throwing chimps are intelligent

Prisoners throw poo

OWS also like spreading the wealth poo for all to see

That means chimps, prisoners and OWS are intelligent, right? Naw, I never was any good at math.

“That can’t be right. Look at all the poop the pols throw day in and day out and we know they aren’t intelligent.”

If they are so stupid why are all of us paying the wages, perks and office overhead for all of them?

Because of that ‘lesser evil’ deception that get pulled along on a string election after election after election after . . .

I think it is a good sign they have a SENSE OF HUMOR!

Intelligence, maybe so and maybe no. But humor is a given.

They think hitting someone with poop is knee slapping funny!
