New Lemur Named After Comedian John Cleese

The science community salutes the Minister of Silly Walks, by naming a Madagascar-native lemur after him, pretty much the week that the animated movie featuring them thar critters & their home isle is released on DVD.

Over the years, lemurs have been badmouthed, as among the ugliest mammalians on the planet. I will always beg to differ. They have bug eyes and they walk funny (actually, they don't walk much at all)-- kinda like me. Three cheers for the lemur! And congratulations to John Cleese!
