Whoever made up that self-serving tripe knows nothing about monkeys,
CITES, the Biodiversity convention, proper documentation, dog food,
Holland, China, mincers, conservationists, tax inspectors, used car
salesmen, or even etc. I hope the originator of this post did it for fun
because there's nothing in it that even remotely resembles reality. I'm
sorry to see such a worthwhile forum as the CP list sullied by such
patently apocryphal material, and I hope it doesn't degenerate further.
