Tarzan actor dies
Tarzan actor dies
Ttributes are being paid to one of Hollywood's most colourful characters. Cheetah the chimp, star of such classic films as Tarzan the Ape Man and Tarzan and His Mate, died on Saturday at his home at the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor of kidney failure. He was 80.

Quote:A sanctuary volunteer told the paper that fingerpainting was not Cheetah's only talent.

"When he didn't like somebody or something that was going on, he would pick up some poop and throw it at them," Ron Priest said. "He could get you at 30 feet [9m] with bars in between."

The star became the subject of controversy in 2009, following the publication of his tell-all autobiography Me Cheeta which lifted the lid on Hollywood's treatment of animal actors in the 1930s. Luminaries such as Chaplin, Bogart, Mickey Rooney and Rex Harrison were among those whose sleazy secrets were revealed to a shocked public.

Further controversy arose when it was revealed that another chimp had stolen the star's identity in a shady attempt to promote his own biography, however that claim has since been withdrawn.

So farewell then, Cheetah; actor, swinger and primus inter primate. Ungawa.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'
