It’s Friday, so here’s a slideshow of orangutans from around the world

The weekend’s on its way – but the timing isn’t important: there’s always time to enjoy some primate party antics.

IT’S BECOME SOMETHING of a tradition around these parts to put together a quick gallery on a Friday afternoon to help get our office-bound readers through the last afternoon of the week.

As one person in the office remarked, “The orangutans are the Irish of the monkey world – because they’re ginger.” So what better creature to feature than the orangiest primates around?
