Snickers Bar Proves Humans No Smarter than Monkeys

June 29, 2011 as reported by CBS News:

(AP) FOND DU LAC, Wis. – A Fond du Lac man got his hand stuck in a car’s gas tank after he reached in to try to retrieve a Snicker’s candy bar he saw inside.

The Fond du Lac Reporter says firefighters freed 20-year-old Earr Stokes on Tuesday afternoon.

Tip to Mr. Stokes next time this happens: JUST LET GO!

(About the monkeys, in case you don’t know, this is how you catch one: put some peanuts (or Snickers bar, perhaps) in a box or coconut with a small opening. Monkey wanders over, discovers delicious treat just in reach, grabs hold but now can’t get full fist out. You’ve got yourself a monkey.)

    This is also how they catch raccoons in “Where the Red Fern Grows.”
