I Saw This Headline

Performing Monkeys Could Spread

… and thought “Oh, God! Not more Congressmen!” But I realized ‘performing’ is generally not part of their job description and felt at peace.

    Beg to differ. “Performing” is pretty much their entire job description.

  2. Depends what your definition of “performing” is.

  3. Ken Summers says:

    Getting up in front of cameras and saying things you don’t really mean, usually written by other people.

  4. For me?

    Main Entry: per·form
    Pronunciation: p&(r)-‘form
    Function: verb
    Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French performer, alteration of Old French perfournir, from per- thoroughly (from Latin) + fournir to complete — more at FURNISH
    transitive senses
    1 : to adhere to the terms of : FULFILL
    2 : CARRY OUT, DO

    Even the old roots mean ‘thoroughly complete’.

  5. Ken Summers says:

    Ah. In that sense, no.

    Boy, that headline:
    Performing Monkeys Could Spread Primate Viruses to Humans
    Since lesbian gorillas are primates, this might be a problem for some people.

  7. Only if you’ve given up your ‘goatmate’.

    I’m sure that would be a hard choice, THS.
