The Daily Outrage: Sticks and stones may break our budgets 

Who: National Science Foundation

What: Provided a grant that allowed two Harvard scientists to make the groundbreaking discovery that sometimes chimpanzees play with sticks as though they were dolls. In some cases, chimps actually built extra beds for the sticks.

Why it's an outrage: Why does science like this get federal funding? Is there some national mandate to figure out what to get chimps for Christmas?

Where to vent: Stick it to the National Science Foundation by calling 800-428-2189.
