What's particularly beautiful in the cosmic irony of Creationists sense is that I originally showed this video years ago when JJ was claiming that chimpanzees employ their canines as lethal weapons against predators.

This is the very video where JJ continued to insist he was right that chimpanzees lunge maws gaping at threats, even though no such behavior occurs, by pointing to the single frame right on the cusp between 0:57 and 0:58 and asserting that this is where the chimp bit the man.

This is a perfect example of how JJ refuses ever to acknowledge errors, and even though he's now employing this video in direct contradiction to one of his earlier arguments (babushkas) he will no doubt be insistent he's right now, and if pushed, would also insist his prior argument was also right.

The voice-over in the monkey island clip said “the chimps mauled his face, nearly ripped off his ear and mangled his hands"…which all could only have happened in a brief period when the man (John Maclaughlin(sp?)) was crouching on the ground trying a submissive posture. I didn’t want to discuss that now, LikeI said, I just wanted to demonstrate that the chimp was able to hold a man’s hands strongly.

There is plenty of evidence that chimps do use their canines to maim and sometimes kill. See Watts et al (2006)
and also, at least 3 horrific attacks by chimps on people.
