" Animal behaviour experts at Zoological Society of London are asking volunteers to 'talk chimp' in everyday life and see how primate patter can resolve workplace conflicts, express emotions and strengthen human bonds. The results of this major study will be published later in the year to see just how 'talking chimp' can help in everyday life."

Make as much noise as possible, while brandishing objects so as to appear bigger. "
Nothing new there, then.
