Thursday, April 14, 2005 Monkey


This is too funny. After purchasing the Virgin Mary cheese sandwich for $28,000, is back at it.

The Internet casino paid $650,000 for the right to name the newly discovered foot-high primate, online auction house announced Wednesday. won a March 3 online auction that raised money to help manage Madidi National Park in Bolivia, where the species of titi monkey was discovered by a Wildlife Conservation Society scientist last year.

"This species will bear our name for as long as it exists," Rowe said. "Hundreds, even thousands of years from now, the Monkey will live to carry our name through the ages."
Surprisingly the Latin name is much less tacky: Callicebus aureipalatii.
