"The slingjaw wrasse has officially replaced the waiter monkeys as our favorite animals"A good thing too! Many people, especially students, need these service positions to get by, and losing them to non-human primates is a real blow. Plus, there is the whole animals rights issue -- do the monkeys get to keep their tips, or does the restaurant take them?
Aha! So that's how it all started. IN your classroom!
