I saw a lecture by a guy from an FX studio which worked on Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes. (I have forgotten which studio. Might have been Rhythm and Hues.) It featured a section called "Unleash Your Inner Flaming Ape"... a gag reel, actually, where the running joke in the studio had become a (live action) screaming burning ape inserted randomly into a shot during daily reviews, even after they went on to other films.
Every studio needs its own "ape" of some kind, even though it's usually a sign of an editor or compositor teetering on the brink...
