Go Ape

I am really not sure if this piece of scientific work was launched on April 1st - but it appears deadpan.

Briefly: Scientists in London are looking for groups of volunteers to help in a research study that will explore the behavioural links between chimpanzees and humans, according to Sky News.

Participants will be asked to replace their usual methods of communication with a combination of grunts and hand gestures, which correspond to the gestures of chimps in their natural habitat.

Handshakes and greetings could be replaced by a back rub or grooming session, while baring your teeth could be used to show a colleague that you disagree with them.

How do you think it would go down in your workplace?

Comments welcome.
