Yes, it's hideous. The victim has been transferred to the Cleveland Clinic, where the first-ever face transplant in this country was done a couple of months ago.

It seems that in '04, in response to another incident involving "Travis," Connecticut actually passed a law prohibiting keeping primates larger than 50 lbs. as pets -- but "Travis" was sort of grandfathered in, and his owner was allowed to keep him. Bad decision, to put it mildly.

Might be time to close this one... not many more tactical lessons to be learned from this, IMO.

Vanya, you are so right. I kept hoping it would take a turn topic-ward, but alas, it was not to be.

Closed for thread drift.

One inappropriate joke removed. If it was yours, shame on you.
