A perfect promotional for Wednesday’s last episode of Your Inner Fish, which is called Your Inner Monkey. I sure wish they would do a series on Shubin’s “The Universe Within”

Happy Earth Day :)

These guys are quite active, but I’ve heard that they have an even wilder cousin. The cappuccino monkey never sits still.

It’s all that caffeine.

Oh, do these guys live on the island of Java?

Excuse me for pointing this about the pun. The species of the monkey and the style of coffee are both named for the Capuchin Friars, in particular, the color of the cloaks which they wear.

Yes, yes. We all know how they got the name “MONKeys.”

The monkeys and the coffee drink are both named for the religious order; both are said to resemble the habit of Capuchin friars. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capuchin_friars
