One got fat

Oh, how I hate to link to a TED Talk, and even more to a TED Talk that was featured on Upworthy, but I want to talk about this.

I don’t think the takeaway from this is “Those monkeys are smarter than us humans. Lookit Cucumber Monkey raging against the injustice.” I think the takeaway is that “Real-life bosses are smarter than that lab assistant. A real boss would seal up the cucumber and grape in identical envelopes before giving them to the monkeys, and then tell the monkeys that it’s inappropriate for them to discuss what’s in their respective envelopes.” Hooray for humans.
