Very Little Resemblance

I know that monkeys are supposed to be very close relatives to humans, but I'm seeing very little proof of that here.

Unless, of course, Don King got himself a grill with some fangs on it. Then I can see the resemblance. But I did specify human, not evil-boxing-promoter.

UPDATE: Zanna has identified this as a gelada monkey. Lovely.

This photo, for the first time, made me wonder if monkeys get boogers.

Oh! The National Geographic scary baboon photo! Nightmare central, dudes.

Oh, actually is a gelada baboon.

This just confirms all of my fears and my deep, er, respect for the whole baboon arm of the primate family.
