Give that poor chimpanzee a banana already! So cruel!

Also, why is this not in the "Cute or Sad?" category?

 |  Mar 12, 2008 at 11:27 PM

He he he, I have to send this to Schwester. Not only is she allergic to bananas, but she hates monkies and chimps!(Don't ask--she's crazy :P)

It's like those chocolate clothes that designer made...

So unkind.
Yet hilarious.
Still, would never do that to mah pooch.
Prefer to snorgle mah pooch without letting him overeat.
Or be tortured.

 |  Mar 12, 2008 at 11:29 PM

Well, technically they WERE giving the chimp a banana... A LOT of bananas. I love the little hand snagging one at the end. I don't think s/he minded at that point. Got the banana.

Personally, I think this is cute. And it's not like they were denied treats for being so patient.
Although I think the Shibi Inu (I think it was, anyway) covered in bones eventually fell asleep. ^_^

 |  Mar 12, 2008 at 11:32 PM

Pure masochists. LOVE IT :d

 |  Mar 12, 2008 at 11:33 PM

OMG that first dog has talking eyebrows. And the arrow for the droool drop.....so cute.

 |  Mar 12, 2008 at 11:34 PM

only the Japanese would make a show out of this...too funny....!

 |  Mar 12, 2008 at 11:57 PM

This strikes me as pretty mean, & not at all funny. Worst of all, it's BORING. If you stop posting these, people will stop sending them, & then we can maybe see some actual cute stuff & not the same boring schtick day after day.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 12:03 AM

Ooooh, Roger got a bleen! Nice work :D

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 12:04 AM

you guys are nuts! the poor dog is drooling seriously. Torture maybe not, but cruel, yes!

they're called "Shiba Ken" (^-^) you do not read it "inu" for dog here since it is a breed of dog
"shiba ken" is the typical Japanese dog )excuse my English)
The show is about the command you give to dogs called "mate" (= wait) which dogs usually learn like "sit", "give your hand" etc (sorry, I really do only know these in japanese, I don't know the commands in English) and it's often trained with patience concerning food
when the little chimp "tastes" the banana the man asks him "you just licked it, didn't you?" etc, until he asks "you did not lick it, right?" and the chimp nods. and at the end he says that he did so well
is there a command in English that equals to "wait"? I heard you usually use German or French commands, too, with your dogs. Is it true??

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 12:38 AM

OMG, that is even torturous to WATCH!! Poor doggie!

I hope get munches up ALL 32 doggie snacks at once!

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 12:39 AM

Kind of disturbing, like a pg version of [...]. Poor babies! Especially the first dog.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 12:41 AM

OMG! 800 bananas! I wouldn't last that long! Even at my current non-chimpy state. :P

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 12:51 AM

See I feel bad for the doggy in the beginning because of the drooling and awwwwww, but I mean I think he knows that if he's patient he'll get more, so it's not really that mean.
Especially the Chimp! He's smart, he knows he'll get more bananas all to himself the longer he waits!

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 01:30 AM

That was so horrible to watch!!

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 01:35 AM

I don't know...the chimp seemed scared once the stack got high. For all he knew, he was being buried alive.

The dogs were fine, God. That this should be the WORST thing to happen to a dog.

A little anticipation makes the treat sweeter--and discipline and self-control is something a few humans could stand to learn. (Tom, the second dog, seems to have been asleep. Cruel? Psh.)

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 01:40 AM

This is not cute. It is mean.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 01:41 AM

It's puppy torture Jenga!

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 01:46 AM

@mari: Thanks for translating! No need to apologize for your English--it's great!!

In English (or maybe I should say, American), we say "Stay" as well as "wait". "Shake" is for "shake hands" or "give paw".

As for German commands, some people do what's called "Schutzhund" training with their German Shepherds. I don't know much more about it except that the commands are in German.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 02:14 AM

Where did they even find that many bananas at once? That must have taken forever!

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 02:16 AM

I couldn't even watch all of that - it was ridiculously cruel and not at all funny. It's the kind of thing that puts me off these cute sites - no more please!

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 02:39 AM

That chimp one was the craziest.

I doubt the animals thought it was cruel - they could have stopped it at any time with their safe words.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 02:53 AM

Wow, I am really not amused by all these "puppy torture" pics - I find them boring. Having a series can be a good idea, but come one now, this has really gone on long enough. And then to top it all off - this video is awful! Not cute in the least. Cute Overload has really gone down the tubes, sad to say. :(

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 03:20 AM

I worry about people sometimes. Especially after watching things like this...

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 03:24 AM

Animals trained like that is abuse.
I couldn't watch it.
I would never subject my pet to that treatment.

take it off. please.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 03:43 AM

I agree with miyo. This is just cruel. There is nothing cute in abusing innocent pets who are trained to obey.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 03:56 AM

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 03:57 AM

oh come on people - it's not cruel, nor is it actual torture. The animal wouldn't do if there wasn't a "reward" in the doggie sense of the word. Temptation is just darn annoying, not torture.

just a lil concerned about the chimp tho, have a problem with them being in tv-shows... in clothes... :/

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 04:00 AM

Thank you so much for taking the time to explain it to me!! You're too kind!

I don't knwo why people say it's cruel? You can't force ananimal to do that, nobody would have minded if they ate it right away.
I think if there's anything cruel to showing trained animals, it would have to be circuses...
and not having an animal have a little patience for food, which they could go and eat right away and nobody would mind (it would have been cute and funny if they hadn't waited, too)

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 04:44 AM

It's not about the animal having patience, it's about them sitting there doing something pointless that could cause them distress (I went back and watched the chimpanzee section - unbelievably harsh) for their owners' amusement.

Dogs are obedient, generally, but taunting them with food is never a good idea. We had a dog who had been mistreated when he was younger - his former owner would remove his food or keep him away from it. He turned into a dog that would snap at or bite anyone who came near him when he could smell food and we had to have him put down when he bit a neighbour's kid. So I'm really not laughing - animals aren't toys, they're not playthings and that video is just not funny.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 04:58 AM

For everyone thinking this kind of training is cruel, you people probably have dogs that are ill behaved and untrained ... but hey, at least you love them, right? Your dogs would probably bite and attack you for lack of training if you so much as did something they disliked... and they are probably a nuisance to society. Take a moment to re-evaluate your own issues because right now you're humanizing a DOG.

That also probably means you are obsessed with food yourselves and probably overweight for the love of it.

Either that or you don't know the meaning of the word patience.

The stupidity of some people is astounding.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 05:07 AM

This treatment of animals is disgusting and makes me want to punch the perpetrators in the head.

Look up the words mean and cruel in the dictionary and you'll find videos and pictures like this.

Unnecessary and demeaning. Not cute.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 05:11 AM

Okay, Chris. Give us YOUR meaning of the word patience. Does the human in the video have patience? Are they attempting to teach an animal patience? Ummm....that would be attempting to HUMANIZE it. You make some pretty strong ASSumptions in your post. Got proof?

Animals share our planet with us and provide us with countless benefits, not the least of which are joy and companionship and beauty. They deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. Anyone who cannot do that does not deserve to be in their presence.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 05:19 AM

What a wonderful thing to wake up to: people complaining, and while all the usual anti-nuffers are asleep. That really is unfair. I mean, this isn't commentroversyoverload, so stop trying to make it that. This is Meg's blog and she is free to post whatever she wants.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 05:41 AM

This reminds me of an Upright Citizens Brigade episode when Adair (Matt Besser's character) talked about collecting these types of videos with an almost pornographic fascination.

Personally, I don't think it's cute. It's not really cruel but just not cute.

Being walled up in a banana fort is kinda mean... but, I am going to build an oreo fort around myself and see if it helps my diet. Wish me luck.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 05:55 AM

I made it to 682 oreos!
But then I ate them all.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 06:05 AM

Ok people...let us all take a moment to truly evaulate the word cruel.

Burning animals? Cruel.
Beating animals? Cruel.
Animal testing? Cruel.
Cutting animals? Cruel.
Throwing animals? Cruel.

Anyone disagree with the above?

Now let's see...the dogs weren't whimpering, crying, or moaning in distress. They were waiting for the treat. It's a very literal use of patience getting what you want in the end. Why do you go to a job you hate? Attend awkward family functions? Events you would rather not be at? Because you will be rewarded with your endurance and patience with a paycheck, gratitude from your mom and etc.

There is no cruelty! If they did not let the animals devour those treats at the end and instead took them away, then it would be cruel. Honestly, get out of your little bubble and read the news about REAL animal cruelty.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 06:05 AM

Okay, I watched the first minute or two, and I really do think this was cruel, far crueler than the pics that have been posted. This dog is drooling buckets and BEGGING to have these treats. It's not nice to tempt them like that. The treats placed ON the dogs, though, were there very temporarily and none of those dogs were drooling uncontrollably.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 06:06 AM

The dog did get the treats. And probably all of them.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 06:10 AM

Do not want

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 06:14 AM

How the hell can this be considered cruel? For a few minutes of drooling and waiting, they got ALL those treats, and I'm sure they considered the waiting well worth it!

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 06:17 AM

Ummm...yeah. I am over this. Bring on the kittehs and the disapproving buns. Although...if these keep up and I no longer feel compelled to check CO 500 times a day, maybe I'd get more done. Hmm...something to think about...

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 06:17 AM

"Do not want"

Well, that's certainly not what the dogs or chimp were thinking.

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 06:17 AM

LOL@fuzimom! Good girl, yes you are a good girl! Who wants a cookie?

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 06:18 AM

Do they get to eat all the treats? Seems like that would make them sick? Can someone enlighten me?

 |  Mar 13, 2008 at 06:18 AM
