But Is It Art?

9:45 AM -- My dimwitted cousins are again making monkeys of your dimwitted cousins. The Local reports:

    A private London-based art collection has bought 22 works from orangutans at the Krefeld Zoo in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

    Sita, Tilda, and Sandra, three female orangutans from the zoo painted the works of art, which sold for a total of €3,200, according to a statement released by the city of Krefeld on Monday...

    The contemporary art collection wishes to remain anonymous, which, according to the statement, "is not unusual in these circles."
Indeed. But London collectors do seem to have a thing for Ape Art.
