Where ever Gizmo is
BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa (AP) — A South African zoo wants a chimpanzee to quit smoking cold turkey.
Keepers say Charlie the chimpanzee picked up the habit from visitors at the Bloemfontein Zoo who sometimes toss him lit cigarettes. (Related video: Smoking chimp)

"It looks funny to see a chimp smoking," a zoo spokesman said, but Charlie's trick could cost him his health.

The zoo is asking people to stop tossing cigarettes and contributing to the chimp's habit.

A zoo official says Charlie "acts like a naughty schoolboy" and hides his cigarettes when workers are around.

brisbane (or any local pub)
south africa has been quite famous for its primates.
anyone remember the 2000 episode involving 'max the gorilla'?
a thief hid in his pen after robbing some store and max beat the sh*t out of him.

and now we have a substance abusive chimp.
heck, even thabo mbeki (the president) gets in on the act!
