Oh, please!

CHIMPANZEES "MARRIED" AT ZOO

Zoo chimps given wedding

Two chimpanzees have been 'married' at a zoo in Brazil to encourage them to start a family.

The 'couple' wore wedding gowns and even had a wedding cake...

"The male, Pipo, has been single for 10 years and it's time for him to give up his bachelor life and give us little chimps. We hope the whole wedding party atmosphere helps them to breed."

The new couple have been given their own cage and zookeepers expect them to start breeding soon.
