George W. Bush or Chimpanzee?
Website founded October 24, 2000 at another domain and moved here by November 2000.
Includes over 70 images of George W. Bush matched with chimps.

Welcome to www.bushorchimp.com!
Welcome to the "George W. Bush or Chimpanzee" webpage. This is a little project I decided to start once I realized how much George W. Bush looks like a chimpanzee. I'm not a member of any political party, and I have nothing in particular against the man. I just think he kind of looks like a chimpanzee. -Bill Feldspar

George Bush Art Photo Gallery by n at pbase.com
Minneapolis Inst of the Arts has a gallery open for political art. Many of the images shown here represent posters on display until election day. I [Kayakbiker] did not make the posters. Most are anti-Bush. As I add more you will see some of the (few) pro- George Bush ones. I have a few photos of other political activity mixed in with the posters. George W. Bush, George Bush, Dubya.

Even The Republic's Steve Benson weighed in, depicting Bush as a monkey wearing a shirt that says "Uncurious George W" and suggesting the president himself is evidence there is no such thing as intelligent design.

Cartoon shows George W. Bush as an ape or missing link, scratching head, labeled "Uncurious George W", sitting on a book labeled "Biblical Creationism" on a stool. Teacher carries book labeled "Actual Science" and says to the students, "Pay attention, class. You're looking at proof that life evolved from lower forms . . . and that it hasn't involved any sort of intelligent design. . . ."

Really a citation, but uncuriousgeorge.org doesn't have primate citations.

Even his unfortunate puzzled-chimp expression when trying to answer questions may be useful: his friends don't mind, and his enemies continue to underestimate him.

How Curious George Got His Name, by Art Bushwald
June 30, 2001
Takes the opposite of the unCuriousGeorge tack, and features a graphic of Curious George to portray George W. Bush being sworn in by Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist in his striped robe.

Every day when he was in the Big White House, he would wake bright and early, put on his finest monkey suit, and go to his big office with the Man in the Black Cowboy Hat, who would give him lots of important-looking papers. George was a clever little chimp who had learned to sign his name, and he enjoyed writing it on every piece of paper that the Man in the Black Cowboy Hat gave him. The papers were taking money away from women and children and poor people. The Man in the Black Cowboy Hat said they deserved it because they weren't born into privileged families. Besides, they probably didn't vote for George!

Today's Internet jokesters routinely compare Bush to simian creatures. Bush as ``Uncurious George'' climbs a tree, Bush as ``Spurious George'' is escorted to the White House by his father and Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia, and Bush's facial expressions are matched with those of chimpanzees.

The Village Voice: Features: Dubya: Very Curious George by Laura Conaway
January 24-30, 2001
Article on George W. Bush or Chimpanzee? website noted above under "websites" heading

With apologies to our primate cousins, three underclassmen at Tufts took live last fall a singular bit of Internet genius: the realization that George W. Bush, plastic, pouty face and all, looks awfully like a chimpanzee. The students paired photos of Shrub, then swinging for the presidency, with pics culled from nature sites, and voilà—the visual pun e-mailed 'round the world. "It was just kind of a joke," says Alex Reeves, who launched BushorChimp.com with Bill Feldspar and Rich Sullivan. "All of a sudden it blossomed into craziness."

The Village Voice January 24-30 cover for the above story.

Spurious George
December 2000 or January 2001
Features a graphic parody of Curious George.

The mentally uncurious George is heading to Washington but only through the self interested efforts of people far more knowing than him. Everything has a cost and in this case it is democracy and the reputation of our nation. Our government is no longer better than corrupt monarchies seen in the third world. The next four years will be very embarassing indeed.

8-frame cartoon parody with George H. W. Bush as Curious George. This is the oldest known parody of anyone named George Bush as Curious George.

George won the election. He soon found it was hard to be President without being curious. People lost their jobs. OOPS! The deficit grew. OOPS! And the little Quayle bird kept messing up too. OOPS! Before long George's wife and dog were more popular than him. OOPS! OOPS!
