How do you do?

An article on bonobo monkeys, from somewhere on the internet:

"If humans do turn out to be genetically closer to the bonobo, Professor de Waal said, “it will overturn everything we’ve been saying for the past 40 years.

Bear in mind that bonobos know no inhibitions — they like sex any which way, with whoever is close by. While humans shake hands as a social greeting, Professor de Waal points out, “bonobos offer genital handshakes”."
