Media Body: There's an Earthlink TV ad (I saw it last night during
"ER") with a signing chimp. A woman sits opposite the
chimp, talking and signing simultaneously: "Jojo
hungry? Jojo want banana?"

Jojo then signs, while the woman interprets: "Jojo
want ticket back to Uganda."

Jojo screeches with joy.

I don't know ASL, so I can't verify the signing.
