75 Today

Continuing in the spirit of posting the odd things I've found on the web, I've discovered that Cheeta, the chimpanzee from the original Tarzan films turns 75 today. And if this isn't the best news story of the day, I'll eat my thong.

Incidental fact: I actually auditioned for a Tarzan film many moons ago. And when I say many moons, you can be sure I don't mean the satellite. I lost out due to my irrational fear of bamboo and an inability to yodel.

Good luck with the thong, then.

Well, I've yet to see a better story, but in case I do, I've got a supply of edible thongs. They're made of liquorice and have been worn only once. They're suppose to help the digestion.

Well, Chippy, I can safely say I've come over here this morning and learned something new.

you may have learned something M&M but after 75 years nobody yet knows why a monkey was named cheetah

I wonder if they let him have a cigar? He did like a smoke.
