There’s a general consensus in the laws of ginger nature that ‘gingers don’t find other gingers attractive’.
Well, we hate to burst bubbles around here, but we got a memo from a lovely creature who is a not-too-distant relation to us red-haired beings, who would eat that law up with a banana as a side dish.
It said: “G’day! I’m a nutty orangutan called Hsing Hsing, and I’ve got a hankering for Nicole Kidman! Corrrrr….”
Yes, boys and girls, in Perth Zoo, Australia, lives a 39-year-old orangutan, the alpha of the zoo, who has been caught ripping photos of Nicole Kidman out of magazines in his enclosure to keep.
Holly Thompson, the Primate Supervisor of Perth Zoo has said that it’s a case of him seeing the red hair on her head and thinking to himself “Ahhh, close enough”.
I mean, orangutans do share 97% of their DNA with redheads, so he’s forgiven for getting slightly confused.
Nicole, if you’re interested, we’d love to set you two up for a romantic date of banana loaf and chest beating.
