Crazy chimp attack

I had the following conversation with a homeless person the other afternoon, as I forked over a dollar. 
"Hey slim," he goes, "What do you think about the lady and the chimp?"  
"I think she crossed the line." 
"It's crossing the line, sleeping with a chimp. It's like sleeping with a dog." 
"I think she might have had problems." 
"Well, she's paying for it now...." 
This was a new one: instead of chit-chat about the weather, or the price of a big mac, he engaged me on the topics of the day, like a radio talk show host elliciting opinions from his listeners. It was very welcome: I've run out of people I can talk to about the crazy-chimp-attack story without seeming ghoulish.
