Remote control primates threaten to descend upon Shadow Art Fair

I just received the above laboratory footage from a prominent local primatologist who tells me that he’s going to unveil his research at the Shadow, whether we like it or not… So, be warned.

    I know these primates. They were in the lab next to mine at Pfizer. Their names are Buttercup and Clod. I imagine they were sold at auction, along with the office furniture and lab equipment. I’m glad to know that their work is continuing. They’re really quite remarkable animals.

    Thank you, Trevor, for bringing your primates out to the show. They were definitely a highlight… I especially liked the reaction I got from them after asking what they thought of that chimp who pulled the woman’s face off a few months ago.
