The Marlboro Chimp

Charlie the Chimp
via the BBC
BBC News - Chimp Charlie dies at 52 despite smoking habit:

... Mr Khedama said he did not believe the addiction had ended Charlie's life prematurely, as he had lived around 10 years longer than the average chimp.

'He was on serious medications and in and out of the vet,' he said.

'Even though he has been receiving special care, and a special diet including protein shakes, vitamin and mineral supplements, he succumbed to old age.'

Charlie is not the only chimp to have picked up human bad habits.

In February, it was reported a Russian chimpanzee was being sent to rehab after he started pestering visitors for alcohol and cigarettes.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em, I guess.

I need to find out more about this Russian Amy Winehouse chimp.
