Reporters put themselves in harm's way all the time. They go into war zones, report from disaster areas, and in some rare cases they even put themselves in danger of getting caught in a baboon grope zone.

Such is the case with reporter Sabrina Rodriguez, who learned two important lessons during a recent trip to the Lodi Grape Festival.

1 - In baboon society a handshake clearly means, "I am ready to escalate our level of intimacy immediately."
2 - Never and I mean NEVER interview a baboon at an event where it could feasibly get its paws on wine.

As funny as this is, it's also pretty scary. There's a point after that handshake where old Mickey the baboon comes to a fork in his brain and has an important choice to make...


Great choice, Mickey. Great choice.
