A primate reminiscence

In A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur’s Court* proud ginger Mark Twain noted, ” When red headed people are above a certain social grade their hair is auburn.”

I’m not sure if Doctor Zaius had red hair or auburn hair, but either way John Hodgman should be commended for asking Dana Gould to portray Maurice Evans as Dr. Zaius as Hal Holbrook as Mark Twain. It is a truly inspired project.

*I must admit that I’ve never read A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur’s Court. When I was four or five years old, my mom took me by accident to see “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and it traumatized me to the point that I started crying as soon as I saw a knight in the movie version of Connecticut Yankee, and I guess… I don’t know. I just can’t read it.
