Top 10 Simians To Keep Tabs On In Case Apes Actually Rise

Ivan Kragoff, Red Courtesy Phone Please

So this weekend we get a prequel/reboot/thing for Planet of the Apes, Rise of the Planet of the Apes. And I’m uncertain how I feel about it, based on the trailers, as we’ve discussed in multiple podcasts by this point. However, it did get me thinking–and you know that’s always a dangerous thing. We have plans in place in case of zombies. We have plans in place in case of Skynet. We even have given some thought to when animals rise up and start kicking some ass. But do we actually have a Rise of the Apes sort of plan? In other words, what if non-human simian creatures got even smarter than they are and decided to whup some ass?

If we’ve learned anything from Batman it’s to know who to keep tabs on. So for your easy planning purposes, we’ve devoted some skull sweat to identifying ten simians that you should definitely keep track of. Because if Apes ever do actually rise, we expect these to throw their lot in with them. Stay vigilant.

Remember, this is the Family Feud so these people undoubtedly reproduced–and did so enough that they could get five of them together on a game show…so, you know, good luck evolution, good luck.

Anyway, one of the things you can do to make your future spawn smarter and way cooler is to give them awesome books to read. And you remember books right? They’re those things you put on your Kindle when you’re not using the Wikipedia access. And they’ve even got these nifty ones that don’t require a download and work with NO POWER. EVER.
