Ape Escape

The Tama Zoo has become famous for it's yearly escape response drill. A zoo worker puts on an animal suit and runs around until zoo keepers pretend to shoot it with a tranquilizer. It's on the news, and based on the spectators, it seems to attract a crowd. Justifiably, in my opinion.

Via 3 Yen, a story about this and the unintended consequences shooting a guy in a furry animal suit has on the youngsters at The Daily Mail.

"the horror had all been a fantasy"
video from last year.

I didn't catch the Oscars. Who ended up winning Best Actor in an Simulated Animal Escape at a Zoo, Aquarium, or Laboratory?

that is the funniest thing ever... Next year I plan to sneak in and secretly replace the human in the animal suit with a real lion. The zoo workers will initially be very happy with the guy who is supposed to be in the costume because of his efforts at realism. "Tetsuo wa sugoi ne, honto ni 'ri-a-ri-su-mu' ne!" Then slowly they'll clue into the fact it might not be good ol Tetsuo in there...
