They wouldn't be heroes if they were infallible, in fact they wouldn't be heroes if they weren't miserable wretched dogs, the pariahs of the earth, besides which the only reason to build up an idol is to tear it down again.

The Mandrill Who Came To Dinner

Gotta love PBS and its Nature program about mandrills. Fascinating to decode, too! "Delve into the mystery behind this animal's unique coloring..." (= Blue butt.) "Not much is known about how mandrills behave in the wild..." (= Toss feces.)

This site's worth it just to mentally visualize some goofy British zoologist saying "rump accents." Oh, that and the fact that the guy built a little tower out in the jungle and stared at them for hours. Makes any other job seem infinitely more enjoyable: "At least I'm not out in the African jungle staring at a monkey's ass!"

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
