As by way of clarification

Regarding the sardonic disbelief expressed at the existence of a red-haired child in the possession of 'chums' aka Ron Weasley, may I cast our minds back to William, Douglas, Henry and Ginger, of the Richmal Crompton 'William' stories.

But on a ponder-worthy note; do orangutans look so glum due to their red-haired, seemingly-no-mate existence?

Apparantly they are the 'brass monkeys' of cliche.
'Orangutang' is the sound they make swinging through the trees.

Don't be silly, it's means "Old Man of the forest" in the local language.

The word "orangutan" comes from the Malay words "orang" (man) and "(h)utan" (forest); hence, "man of the forest".

Well I'm better for knowing that.
But - what do you suppose a brass monkey swinging through the trees would sound like?
