Fabled Missing Link is Found; You Can Be One, Too

The biggest news on Google today is that scientists found a a 47 million-year-old fossil of a primate that appears to be the “Holy Grail” of evolution, the so-called Missing Link itself between humans and apes.  Dubbed Darwinius Masillae (since it is proving Darwin’s theory of evolution), the almost perfectly intact specimen is causing a ton of discussion online.  Google dedicated their logo today to the discovery:

The lemur-like creature has opposable thumbs, is named Ida, and will likely be a part of scientific history for centuries, if not forever.  When I hear of a link finally being found between man and ape, I think, “How can I help man become more like ape?”  As a result, here are the top 6 monkey costumes at Hollywood Toys and Costumes.com:
