This is huge. Our on-the-spot investigative reporter at Be the BQE has followed up on his post-Sandy story of the missing auto-auction ape. Some weeks back he speculated that the primate was a victim of the storm, and today's update proves him to be correct. I'm still reeling at the news: the old Gowanus ape missing, its name disclosed (Pithicos!), & pictures of the new inflatable. Too much to take in all at once. I need a drink.
