Old Man Finds Rare Primate That Was Thought To Be Extinct

An antique store owner, Mr. Weng, rediscovers the rarest primate thought to be extinct, the Pygmy Tarsier, in the mountains of Rorekatimbo in Indonesia. The old man was out taking a walk with his grandson on his lunch break when he came across this adorable creature. This nocturnal animal is rare in the fact that it spends most of its' time awake at night but never eats after midnight. That is also the reason the Mogw...Errrr Pygmy Tarsier has such large eyes. It hates the sunlight so it spends most of the daylight hiding its' sensitive skinfrom the dangerous rays.

"You do with mogwai what your society... has done with all of nature's gifts. You do not understand." Mr. Weng tells reporters. Our best guest was this means he was planning to serve this little guy as the dinner special at his nephew's China Palace #467 Super Grand Buffet but we were too busy staring at that creepy, hazy lifeless eye to really pay any heed to they ramblings of an old man.

Strangely enough, while we were in Indonesia reporting for this story, one of our photographers caught a glimpse of another unidentified species that had snuck into the hotel kitchen and was helping itself to some cookies. As our photographer approached the creature, he said it sounded as if it was repeating "Yum, Yum, Yum," over and over again.
