Good Idea. If you read the article, all the money (650,000!)is going to the Wildlife Sanctuary where the monkeys were found.

I see no problem with this. I gaurantee you no biologist is going to refer to it as the GoldenPalace.Com Monkey.

Yeah thats just the common name and considering the money is going to a wildlife sanctuary I think its actually a good thing. Now if goldenpalace.com was in the taxonomic name that would be pretty absurd.

Its an offshore casino. They cant advertise in traditional media..It's the law....So they buy crap from ebay and name monkeys and get free press and advertising.... I bet they can write it off as an advertising expense...

Good movie. I was a bit skeptical when I first heard about it, thinking that it was going to be a bunch of leftist propaganda condemning capitalism, but it's actually very well done, and much more objective than I thought.
