Brief Interruption Regarding "Macaca":
As long as we're tossin' pictures around here:

The covers of the series of Spanish books about "Paca, la macaca" show a happy monkey engaged in various human activities, like cooking and going to market. Perhaps George Allen was making a reference, a tribute, even, to the joy monkeys seem to take in their anthropomorphization. Of course, put a little red hat on that fucker and nail his feet to a tricycle, and a monkey is still, you know, a monkey.

Coming up: More New Orleans.
