Merry Chimpmas!

(From WTSP) Tampa, FL - "A little girl is OK after being hit by an orange thrown by a chimpanzee at Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo.
This incident happened during the zoo's "Presents for Primates" event. Zookeepers tossed wrapped presents filled with food in the chimps' and other primates' exhibits."

This is fantastic!
Okay, okay, it happened to a little kid and nobody wants to see a little kid get hurt. The good news is she's just fine, which brings us back to...
This is fantastic!
Come on! A chimp gets excited and bonks somebody in the head with a piece of fruit. What could be better?
Well, all right, I'll concede that a wealthy dowager or some stuffy banker in a three-piece suit would have been better than a poor, innocent child and that a banana or a handful of feces would have been better than an orange but I stand by, and reiterate, my original "Come on!" because animals hitting humans in the head with stuff will always be hilarious. Here's the original story from WTSP's web site, including some raw video (WARNING: You won't see the impact but you do get to hear a nice, wet *SMACK!* which is pretty sweet).
