You don't know about the Phillipians? It's a small Island off the coast of Norway, the people there raise goats and play ping pong with bonobo's whom they taught to play about 40 years ago and the bonobos win at least half the time.
There was a big political uprising about all that but the Prime minister resigned and a bonobo was voted in to replace him.
Things got a lot better for the average citizen after that and bonobos were granted full legal citizenship.
Well all but Gobo, the youngest son of Yabo, now the prime minister. It seems Gobo started selling very good copies of the Phillipian passports and made over a million bucks on the deal so they rescinded his citizenship, forced him to move to Sweden where he can be seen on the streets busking and dancing for lunch money.
In a recent interview, he was quoted (in sign of of course, Bonobos can't actually talk, just grunt with pleasure) as saying it is ok, he has made lots of friends in the black market circus circuit, going from town to town dancing and playing his didgeridoo, a tenor model small enough he can play it while dancing. About the size of a clarinet but it does take a considerable amount of practice and he got his 10,000 hours on it last spring.
He managed to make enough money on the circus circuit to sneak in his girl friend, a small postal carrier from the south of the island and they are happy together so he has managed to live quite well considering.
