Trained Monkeys

Primate Programming Inc. will contract out apes for software projects at far lower rates than humans. It’s a great solution, but not perfect.

It suggests companies provide “a leafy, comfortable workspace” and warns that “hominids (great apes) will not share source code and become very territorial when programming.”

PPI baboons can get rowdy after software testing, the Web site suggests, while its chimps are experts at debugging techniques and bill at a higher rate.

Maybe I could get one to do my job, stay at home, and pocket the difference.
