Thread Name: BS: The Hartlepool Monkey (Continued)
Subject: RE: BS: The Hartlepool Monkey (Continued)
I dont think this thread should be BS. THe continuity of folk culture is a central part of Mudcat thought.What can it be about the collective psyche of one town that makes the inhabitants unable to distinguish between simians and humans? Is this phenomenon unique to Hartlepool? Are there obscure towns in Louisiana where they hang or elect alligators, for example? Or codfish in Newfoundland? Contributions please.
