Nov 20, 2009: Moon Monkey
Oh darn, I forgot to check with snopes.
On June 3, 1981 Harlan the Monkey became the first primate to ever walk on the moon.
Harlan died on November 18, 2009 of an apparent Tang overdose.

Was he wearing a diaper?

That's what the Ape-ollo missions were all about.

That's fake. I happen to know Harlan, and he's alive and well, living in Chicago.

Guest from link:
Initial reports indicate no sign of forced entry and his cage door locked from the inside, but officials refuse to rule out foul play due to accusations by immediate family members claiming his private physician, Dr. Saliika Bhat brother of former comedian Rodney Dangerfield’s physician Dr. Vinni Boom Bhat, administered a fatal dose of anti-depressant medication immediately prior to his death. Dr. Bhat refused comment and is held on $500,000 bond.

1) We didn't send any rockets to the moon in 1981. At that time NASA was playing with the new space shuttles, not practicing moonwalks for apes. (Somehow there's a Michael Jackson/Bubbles joke in that sentence.)
2) It's impossible to overdose on Tang. Otherwise I, and every kid I knew in first grade, would have died years ago. Unless Pixie Stix are the antidote to Tang.
3) There's no way the animal-rights crowd would have tolerated seeing an ape in a space suit like that. How is he supposed to be able to pick up his turds and throw them? Chimps have that right!
Of course it's fake, folks. Enjoy the humor of it.

Here's a not so cute picture of a monkey in the University of Utah lab.
They withheld water from him to get him to comply. (This against Welfare Act rules for lab animals.)
We need to stop this "experimenting" on other beings.

Well I reckon you get the death penalty for spanking or shocking the 'monkey'.
