His time on the road included working as a ringmaster and costumer for the three-ring Royal Hanneford Circus. A sideshow needed a costume for a girl-to-gorilla act, and a specialty was born. [...]
Once on a "ghost show" tour in Canada, Philip Morris somehow got arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police -- while wearing a gorilla suit. Charges were dropped, Scott Morris recalled, but "he wouldn't take the head off the costume until we got to the police agency because he didn't want anyone to know it was him."
In 1967, the company says, a customer named Roger Patterson bought a custom gorilla suit that was used to film the famously grainy footage of a hairy "Bigfoot" striding through the northern California woods. [...]
With Halloween approaching, it's the company's busiest time of year. The 250 employees are shipping costumes all over the world. "I don't know what he was thinking, leaving us at this time of year," Scott Morris joked. "He just passed away last night and at 8 o'clock this morning, I was at work. We have to do what we have to do, and he just loved what he was doing."

What are you using to make these funky faux chat app "screenshots"?
I Have Extensive Files.
BTW, they suck heavily when reading thw site via RSS reader (I know, right?)
I suppose that depends on how much your RSS reader sucks. The content:encoded of the entry contains the same HTML as you see here, with inline styles.
They're still readable (but not as pretty) in Inoreader
Turns out web-based RSS aggregators like to throw their own styling on content they consume. They destroy the feeds I get from many locations. I blame the tool, not the feed.
Well if you wanna mess around with it and tell me what CSS it's destroying maybe I can adjust. Maybe it just needs !important on every damned thing.
Nah. Don't do anything on my account for this. Google Reader used to destroy things. Now Feedly destroys things. Like I said, I blame the tools, not the content.
Currently on my todo list is "figure out how MICROS~1
OutlookExchange Server is destroying the HTML in my weekly mailings. Eye twitch. Eye twitch. Because it's still 1994?
The MUA I use was having a problem with Outlook destroying its HTML (things like double-CR being truncated into one-CR-wall-of-text). I worked with that developer to do some A/B testing and (eventually) fix the encoding so that Outlook stopped, more or less, destroying the view.
If you'd like I'll be happy to point you two at each other. He tends to be really approachable and would probably be happy to briefly outline what _his_ encoding "fuck-you"-from-Outlook was.
In my 20's I had a gorilla suit, and it served me well for many Halloweens. Everyone should have a gorilla suit for a while, they open so many doors. I once got a shout-out from Buck O' Nine to "that drunk gorilla", which was a very cool thing to me at the time. Kinda still is now that I'm reminiscing about it.
I couldn't believe this wasn't linked.
I wonder if it was one of his?
I wish they had adapted this story on Justified.
