This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — Which animal is most similar to man?

Tom delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Djere, MC-B, Kaitlin and Connie:

The chimpanzee combines a 94% identical genome with the ability to fashion and use tools, a sophisticated social structure and an expansive ability to communicate among its kind and with ours.


David dissents, joined by Steve and Erin:

Dogs. They go through life clueless and depending on the kindness of a greater power — but as soon as that power turns his back, they tear up the trash, escape from the yard, and run wild.


Erin dissents, joined by David:

Dogs, because we’re both messy, stupid, and love company.


Steve dissents, joined by Mike:

Only the cat combines senseless (often violent) behavior with a limitless superiority complex.


Chloe dissents, joined by Mike:

Sloths. Slow. Bored. Boring. Stinky. Freaky-odd.


Josh dissents:

I was going to say “woman” to be funny, until I remembered that they’re nothing like us, so let’s go with armadillo.


Job played no part in the determination of this issue.


Next time: At what age should a child be permitted to pursue a romantic relationship?
