I think canned monkeys as code for "Men... in Spaaaaace!" is funny. 
YMMV. If you also think you're not a human primate, but the summit of 
evolutionary design instead of an arbitrary point on 
an open-ended evolutionary trajectory, pretty close to the point of
origin and very remote from the ceiling, you've not been reading 
the fossil record. Be careful not to become a stratum in it.
