Fund Drive - An Auction To Protect Madidi and Help Save a Treasured Wilderness!

Posted 8 Feb 2005 at 21:04 UTC by badvogato Share This

Ok. folks. Here's a chance to grab a piece of imagination that time we shared on advogato shall be remembered even if all human perished but monkeys live on and rule, (not exactly as was written in the Bible, or is it?)

Anyway, Wildlife Conservation Society is auctioning the right to name an unidentified titi monkey on

Ladies and Gentlemen:

On 2002 Feb 21, MY sister gave away the right to name an un-identified prime mate to its father. She very much regretted the fact that she wasn't in the best shape to protect that treasured wilderness at that time so she let the man have the say. Now she asked me to make it up for her. She wanted to name female titi monkey 'advogato' and the male titi monkey, uh, badvogato, (surprise! surprise! it wasn't me. i am not a monkey...). And when one can't tell if it's a male or a female, you have the right to call it BA.

To make her wish come true, i solemnly inaugurate a fund driving event in this article. All generous giving and promisery note should be sent to

May God grant you a rich life after the generous giving but not before...


Yours Truely Booby.

If it can, i'd like titi monkey to be named after Neale's new baby song:

Dear baby,

"hello" from your soon-to-be dad! I hope you come out soon, I sure will be glad when I get to meet you, and when you meet me, And mom can sit down without having to pee.

We'll bring you back home, you'll be met by the Dink. We're not really sure what the Dink's gonna think; I'm sure that he'll sniff you a whole lot that day, He'll merf and he'll try hard to get you to play.

Your grandma and grandpa will be at home too! they'll cuddle and love, and admire your poo, they'll tell mom and dad everything that they know And shortly thereafter we'll ask them to go.

We'll have lots of fun, as a dad and his tyke. I'll take you for rides on the back of the bike. I'll give you warm baths in the tub and the sink. I'll hold you up high and we'll both chase the Dink.

I guess there will be lots of un-fun stuff too, Like when you get sick with a cold or the flu, Or when you have filled up your diaper with goo, Especially if all your diaper goo's blue.

But anyway, we're all just dying to see ya! I bet that you're just as excited to be ya. Your mom and I think you've been in long enough. Get gotta there soon and we'll start doing stuff!
