(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.

Oh definitely so. And so let’s extrapolate and pronounce that defecating on police cars is also a sign of intelligence, yeah that’s the ticket.........
I'm so sick of paying for worthless hypothetical information.
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.
this must be why the occupiers think they’re so smart.
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.
People here on FR just do not give Michael Moore enough credit.
There are a lot of talentless, non sentient, humans who through all kinds of crap against a wall hoping for something, anything to stick...
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.
And then call what sticks to the wall "art" and get a gov grant.
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.
The bar for “intelligence” has been lowered quite a bit.
OWS will take note of this development in hopes of increasing their demonstrable intelligence.
This is a sad ploy to make progressives behavior in close elections look smart.
