Marlin Perkins was the Director of the Zoo back in the 50's through the 70's. He was a very kind and benevolent old man. When he was filming his television show, Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, he would always treat the natives with respect. This one time he helped out this African village by sending them a bunch of basic medical needs. They were so thankful that they gave him this huge teakwood door from their temple, or something, I'm not sure. But it was a big frigging door. And Perkins LOVED it.
Dr.Perkins accepted the door and brought it back with him to the Zoo.
The Amazonians value combat prowess and purity of spirit. By wrestling half naked, they pay homage to both virtues by displaying their battle-forged bodies while preserving as much modesty as their society deems necessary. The gelatin in which they wrestle is symbolic of the fluid nature of battle, a concept the Amazonians call ‘akgor-gra.’
Pros: Much more comfortable than my last toilet seat, which was a transparent resin with seashells embedded inside. The outer layer wore off from friction, exposing the sharp jagged edges of the seashells, which were constantly scrapping my backside and causing major cuts and open sores.
