This trope is named for a Website/{{Superdickery}}.com subpage. And yes, we know it ought to be "Everything's Better With Non-Human Primates" too. After all, everything's also better with ''apes'', who are technically not monkeys. The difference is actually very simple--monkeys have tails, while apes (including chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and humans) don't. [[InherentlyFunnyWords On the other hand the word "monkey" is simply funnier]] (unless you're addressing a certain [[Literature/{{Discworld}} librarian]]) There has been some controversy in recent years over the use of trained primates in film and television, so don't expect a lot of recent examples except, perhaps, computer-generated ones. Lemurs are often still lumped in with monkeys despite the fact that they're not monkeys either [[note]]Primates are classed by what kind of noses they have: monkeys and apes (including humans) are haplorhine (dry-nosed) primates, while lemurs, and their relatives the lorises and galagos are strepsirrhine (wet-nosed), primates.[[/note]] but media still has a ways to go before it can make this particular distinction.
