It has been said that the great apes respond thusly:

If you give a gorilla a screwdriver, he will first be afraid of it, and then ignore it.

If you give a chimpanzee a screwdriver, he will use it to stab or pry, as the need arises.

If you give an orangutan a screwdriver, it will disappear as soon as your back is turned, and then, after you have left for the night, he will use it to dismantle his cage.

Case in point: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30683811/

The news drones do not seem to have picked up on one of the obvious points, though: Karta wasn't trying to ESCAPE, she was just having fun.

As far as I know, no one has ever provided an orangutan with a pile of Duplo blocks. Could be interesting...
