Salad Daze

I would fully expect to be schooled about the authentic chimpanzee diet in response to the above cartoon from 2000. I know. Chimpanzees in the wild don’t eat a lot of lettuce; they do eat fruit, and they will eat meat when they come across it, i.e., catch a hapless critter and beat it to death. However, what chimps really eat is not important. This is a dinner-table conversation between man and wife. It doesn’t matter if Arlo is spot-on from a zoological standpoint. He’s just saying what anyone might say in response to one too many salads. This sort of pedantic observation by some readers is as old as the rotary press, but today, in the age of online comments, Boy Howdy!
