Gentlemen apes prefer blondes

Gigantic gorillasIf the Carnival of the Insanities isn’t crazy enough for you, this story from Reuters puts the o-ran-dy into orang-utan:

Sibu the orang-utan has miffed his Dutch keepers by refusing to mate with females and showing sexual interest only in tattooed human blondes.

I could say something about the proclivities Dutch blondes (male and female) at this point, but I WILL restrain myself. However, it is worth noting that another famous ape also seems to prefer blondes, though it was never clear if Fay Wray was tattooed or not. (Certainly not anywhere we could see.) In either case, I place myself firmly in the ape camp vis-a-vis the issue of human female blondes.
