Charlie the Chimp, R. I. P.

Famous Smoking Chimpanzee Dies At 52 - TIME NewsFeed: "Charlie the chimp, known for his cigarette habit, has died at his home in a South African Zoo.

After picking up a smoking habit because of cigarettes being thrown into his enclosure at the Mangaung Zoo in Bloemfontein, South Africa, Charlie began to bum smokes from zoo visitors by gesturing to his mouth with two fingers, mimicking the actions of smokers he'd watched."

Hat tip to David Cranmer.
