THE BONOBO PEACE PRIZE
News Item: The time for the Nobel Peace Prize announcement is near.
Papa, why don't we have a peace prize? The humans have so many prizes -- a prize
for this, a prize for that, a winners cup, prize money ... all that good stuff.
It is because humans love to compete. They compete for everything. They even
make up games so they can compete. They call it fun and they like to play. But the
losers are always upset.
We play too. But you are right. We make up to each other.
Son, the human games don't end there. Then they compete for food, resources, and
more ... and then they can kill to get them.
So they need a peace prize ...
Son, if we had a peace prize, we would have to give it to every bonobo. We all
promote peace. That is why we have a heaven on earth ...
