7776: Animal Talk.
Monkeying around with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• According to LaToya Jackson, brother Michael spent thousands of dollars in an attempt to implant vocal chords in pet chimp Bubbles, hoping to get the animal to speak. However, the surgery was abandoned when Jacko learned it could prove fatal for his longtime companion. So Bubbles remains the only figure associated with the Jacksons who hasn’t received implants or reconstructive procedures.
• Dozens of brown pelican chicks affected by the BP oil spill disaster were treated and relocated to a sanctuary in Miami. It’s a good thing the birds weren’t sent to Arizona—otherwise, the brown pelicans might have been targets for racial profiling.
