    It is worth pointing out that Otto says the key phrase (“Don’t. Call. Me. Stupid.”) several times during the movie. It is a veritable tag line.

    Granted, most apes who read philosophy don’t understand it (as clearly evidenced by many silly discussions found at ScienceBlogs), but there are a few of us who read with comprehension.

    Yes, but the bigger question is whether apes WRITE philosophy.
