I see you baby ... and I'm telling my ancestors

[8/03/07 NOSY BE, MADAGASCAR --- Dear Joe, Your pug, Margo, is cool. But I would rather have a pet chameleon. They have crazy googlie eyes that can look for bugs in all directions … and, you know, they change color and all that. Females are red. Males are neon green. But they turn black at night to hide on branches and things. Malagasy people are moderately terrified of them (think me and clowns) because they are messengers (think Sarge the prairie dog) to a cult of ancestors who will curse you if you’re up to no good. Keeping it clean, SUTTER]
