SO WHO YA GOT?!!

I know I’m stretching it, but I couldn’t bear holding out from sharing this hilarious webvideo I played over and over and over …. I just love the Tug-of-War competition’s post recap of events

What can I say, I love monkeys 🙂

In a previous time I worked at a zoo doing animal shows and believe or not I learned a few things about orangutans, chimps and gorillaz –

If you give a screwdriver to:

1) an orangutan – he will figure out a way to get out of his enclosure and run

2) a gorilla – he will eat it

3) a chimp – he will kill you with it

I wonder who is who as it relates to the recruiting world


Digg!

    Makes me feel all warm(orange) and fuzzy all over.

    Intersting take on the industry…oddly enough, just a few seconds in I could see how your comparison relates. Does that make me crazy too?
