Hail to the Chimp, Part 2
In what is probably the best thing since sliced bread, the good folks over at pokershare.com have decided to enter a chimpanzee named Mikey into the 2006 World Series of Poker, back him with real money, and actually let him compete for fortunes and prestige.
After watching some of the videos of Mikey actually playing poker, it is obvious that the technical aspects of his game need to be refined a bit. However, his poker face is second-to-none, and we're guessing that it's going to be pretty damn tough to get inside Mikey's head and psych him out. We got a feeling he's gonna be stonewallin' a lot of people at the tournament.
This is Mikey before his poker days, on the Channel 11 news.
As good as thing whole Mikey thing may seem, and as much as we here at HPO will be rooting for him to win it all, there is no doubt that our favorite ape is still Pan-Kun. And, although we still haven't forgiven those incompetent jerks at youtube.com for taking down those videos of his, we still remember Pan-Kun very fondly. Here is the Pan-Kun video of the week:
In this episode, Pan-Kun's task is to tie up James, enter what appears to be a milk factory, help some Japanese people make milk, and then purchase some cheese that he had tasted earlier. Of course, all of this is just speculation, since none of us here at HPO speak Japansese. Anyways, Pan-Kun almost gets the job done, but in the end his ape-instinct gets the better of him and he starts farting around instead of TCB-ing. He couldn't tell the cheeses apart, and ended up staring at them for a really long time without getting it right.
Plus, they equipped Pan-Kun with a manpurse, which was just plain wrong.
