Some Austrians want Hiasl to be granted legal rights as a person.
Only Hiasl is a chimp. This could be the start of a really bad precedent. Next, Hiasl will demand the right of free speech, then the right to vote. If the other chimps find out this could wind up where we will have to bow to the will of our new overlords and hope that some Charlton Heston-like hero can save us.
