Monkeys and Fowl


What’s the difference between a baboon with a chicken and a monkey with a pigeon? Apparently not much — affection all around!

Is it possible that these two things are happening on the same day in China and Lithuania?

Do animals often overcome their differences in this manner?

    There must be some sort of harmonic convergence happening. Yay for that.
