The DNA of chimpanzees and humans are 98.5% identical. A mutation in only a few genes can give a chimpanzee a human-sized brain. Such a mutation would have little effect in the wild but if chance puts two such chimpanzees in a primate research center where they learn sign language and see educational TV. . .

What would you do if you were a chimpanzee with a human brain? A really smart human brain? Pongo and Jeeves accepted that chance had played a joke on them and they laughed right along with it. Not everybody joined in. The pompous and similar degraded specimens found that their encounters with the chimpanzees usually proved more entertaining to bystanders than to themselves..

Making the best of things, Pongo and Jeeves led full lives that included visiting Roswell as aliens, producing syndicated columns and even writing speeches for a presidential candidate. Along the way, they were able to thwart bad guys and generally do good. All told, lives well spent and justly rewarded.

Join Pongo and Jeeves. You'll enjoy their company.

About the author (2000)

R. N. Varhaug likes stories with a few chuckles and happy endings. The stories should be totally devoid of redeeming social value and fail utterly to probe the depths of human experience or illuminate the hidden crevices of tortured souls. He lives in Houston with his first wife. When not paddling a kayak or riding a bicycle he practices the art of being a generally genial retired person.
