"It's weird... people say they're not like apes. Now how do you explain football then?"

- Mitch Hedberg

About this Quote

This quote by Mitch Hedberg is a humorous method of pointing out the paradox of how human beings frequently reject their similarities to apes, yet still take part in activities that are extremely comparable to those of apes. Football is a prime example of this, as it includes a lot of physical contact and aggression, which are both traits that are seen in apes. Hedberg's quote is a funny way of mentioning the paradox of how human beings typically reject their resemblances to apes, yet still take part in activities that are extremely comparable to those of apes. It is a suggestion that humans are animals, and that we must not be so quick to reject our resemblances to other species. We need to rather accept our similarities and recognize that we are all part of the exact same animal kingdom.
