* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', this gets thrown around all the time by both humans and non-humans. What makes it funny is that some of Tagon's Toughs actually ''are'' genetically uplifted apes.

For an extra layer of hilarity, the lampshades come out when Kevyn (whose sister is engaged to one of said uplifted apes) uses the phrase "... or I'm a monkey's uncle!"
--> Considering who your sister's dating, technically...
--> Any offspring of such a union would be apes, not monkeys. I checked.

Despite this trope's use of the word "ape" as an insult, it should be noted that biologically, humans actually ''are'' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hominidae a species of ape]] -- in fact, primate-conservation advocates have inverted this trope by likening apes to humans instead of the other way around. The argument goes that apes have intelligence similar to that of young children, so if you WouldntHurtAChild, you shouldn't hurt an ape either.
