Time for the Ape of the Day!

Fun fact: Baron von Todschnitzel was the first to admit he was better at mutating gorillas than at coming up with names for the creatures he produced thereby.

Happy birthday to the asteroid 20 Massalia, or at least our knowledge of it! Annibale de Gasparis discovered it on this day in 1852.

De Gasparis named the asteroid for the city of Marseille. It is, however, still awaiting incorporation into the municipal sewer and bus systems.

(Today’s ape present by implication.)

Fun fact: Seldom given the credit they deserve for their meteorological acumen, the Bigfoot community had actually known “a storm is coming” for several days.

Happy birthday to James Marsden, born on this day in 1973!

Always entertaining, and never more so than as Corny Collins in my favorite movie musical HAIRSPRAY.

Happy birthday to LORD OF THE FLIES, published on this day in 1954!

I don’t know if it’s still the case, but when I was in junior high and high school, many English teachers assigned LORD OF THE FLIES. I think it was their way of letting us kids know they were on to us.

“Maybe there is a beast…maybe it’s only us.”

I didn't respond to these editorial notes with my usual 24 hours of shock and horror. Instead, it's only been a couple hours, and my brain has already moved on to coming up with ideas to modify the pitch that should allow me to satisfy the editor and still write my essential concept. I must be finally be maturing. Or something.

I keep getting Spam email offering to sell me the Biblical secret of long life. I'm guessing it's a Mark of Cain/Wandering Jew kind of process, and that when you pay up, they tell you exactly what extraordinary sin to commit and how.

Fun fact: With the human “menace” controlled and his department consequently facing budget cuts, Dr. Zaius pondered the feasibility of demonizing elk.
