“When the aging gorilla is confronted with the much more virile, new alpha-male, he shows submissiveness by grooming the alpha-male, but the gesture is actually a vain attempt by the old gorilla to humiliate his much younger rival.”

There's the link anyway.

Will fix the video asap.

Made me laugh this morning...

Voila!

I'm starting a new job today so won't be around much until later....

A new job! I hope that's good news. :) 

I love Dr. Goodall's interpretation of this event, although Wikipedia doesn't say she's a doctor, and Snopes says she never said this. So here we are. 

Comment by Anna Herrington on April 26, 2018 at 8:09am

It is good news - I need more than work at home, got a little burned out...

...and... doctor? 

And Snopes?

I'm just passing along the humor that was passed along to me by email this morning.... if she didn't say it, well, then..... maybe it was the little known Jayne Goodie that said it.

Thanks for the fact check  : )

I don't care about Snopes this time.

That move he made to brush pretend dandruff off the shoulder of Monsieur Macron was one of the more awkward and socially inept things I have witnessed.

POTUS never fails as a buffoon.

Yeah, it's just the humor of it that got me.... especially as I'd been thinking the same thing when I saw this excruciating clip last night.

Macron literally looks at Trump over and over like, "They are not kidding, this guy is insane." I appreciate that he pretended friends long enough to be able to address Congress with his actual agenda/stance on the world, etc.

I think that is the only way with this guy/president or you're out altogether and your voice is effectively silenced here in LaLaLand. 

Although all of it has been cringe worthy to the extreme, imho.

What I find totally bizarre is that NOBODY wants to hold his hand (including his wife).  

I know he is creepy as hell, but do you think he has cooties or something too??????

The hand holding saga is a good distraction, that's for sure.... and rather hilarious, too, I must admit... while our own 'Rome burns.'

Good luck with the new job.

This is priceless.

Comment by Anna Herrington on April 26, 2018 at 8:40am

Thanks Rodney - I thought it pretty spot on, too.  A little levity for a Thursday morning.
