There's nothing better than something trying to be serious that is so dumb you have to laugh in its face. Take Law & Order: SVU. The folks at Videogum found a hilarious clip from a recent show about an exotic animal smuggling ring that smuggles gibbons into the country in order to make chopsticks out of them. (For all you doubters out there, they say, "For realz.") Besides the incredibly bad acting (or maybe good acting — it must've been hard to keep a straight face), the second-best moment comes when the dude figures out that the gibbon is inside the basketball, and is forced to say: "The monkey is in the basketball." To which his partner replies, "I'm on it." The best moment? When the gibbon emerges from the basketball and gives its rescuer a hug. Watch and be amazed. (I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Maybe I have a chance as a screenwriter after all.)

Hahaha And this is why Mariska (Sp) wins emmy's!!! I absolutely love the monkey hug..It's brilliant Awweess :) And SVU is a really good show, generally all the episodes are pretty serious. I suppose they need to have a joke once in awhile.

I saw this episode... the beginning was pretty good. But I did chuckle a bit at this part, the "monkey hug" was a bit overkill.
