I’ve heard of people volunteering to be “zoo subjects” before this, but whyat gets me is this:

“People like to watch them taking a shower”? Unless they’re really good-looking, that’s weird. I notice they don’t say anything about using the toilet.

Please Do Not Spam the Australians.

Once again, life imitates The Simpsons.

Of course, The Simpsons, in this case, may have been imitating life. The 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair had an exhibit of pygmies brought back from the Belgian Congo. Check out the Web for “Ota Benga.”

Why don’t we just send them David Blaine?

Because nobody has the time to watch someone take a shower for eight and a half years.
