Here's One for the People Honestly Just Looking for Lemurs

Using Casey Bisson’s BSuite I can easily see the top in-coming search terms. It turns out that not everyone coming here is finding what they are looking for. Lots of people are looking for goodbye poems. Besides saying goodbye to the Poetry Bus again I can’t do much for those people. But there are other people who want to know about Lemurs. Some want to know what a lemur looks like wet, still others want lemur poems, or lemurs dancing or even lemur videos. To those last folks I present this video of lemurs doing whatever is it that they do… to the song “Move It.” Thank you youtube.

ps— until looking for lemur videos I had forgotten about the Sifaka, which is the lemur famous for jumping only sideways when on the ground.

pps— Lemurs are members of a class of primates known as prosimians and make up the infraorder Lemuriformes. This type of primate is considered the evolutionary predecessor of monkeys and apes (simians). The term “lemur” is derived from the Latin word lemures, which means “spirits of the night”. This likely refers to many of the nocturnal lemur species and their large, reflective eyes. The term is generically used for the members of the four lemuriform families, but it is also the genus of one of the lemuriform species. The two flying lemur species are not lemurs, nor are they even primates. (wikipedia)

and— lemurs are smart

and— lemurs know John Cleese

and— here is a lemur poem:
Dear lemur
some people are dumb,
if no one stopped them
they would just poke their eyes with a stick.
I know you would never poke
even your ear with a stick.
I will call each of you Primate Einstein
or maybe just Primate Mendel.
