R.I.P. Cheetah

Cheetah,  that is, the “Cheetah” known to some of his friends as Cheetah-Mike, a chimpanzee whose brilliant portrayal of a monkey in several Tarzan Movies with Johnny Weismuller in the early 1930’s,  has died, at the age of 80 years or something like that.

The presumed cause of death was kidney failure. He liked to fingerpaint, and could hit you with his poop from 30 feet if he had something against you.

I’m trying to work through my thing about monkeys…I look at the picture, I try to keep breathing regularly and suppress my hastening cardiac response…

I think I might be more scared of monkeysuits than real monkeys.
