Some fakery and a laugh.
What excites the internet like tossing a rubber snake into a cage of monkeys?
Photoshop fakery of course.
Viewers were debating the authenticity of the photo when I became aware of it about a week ago.
I was also getting an unusually high number of blog hits, so I checked my blog's stats, and found new viewers from hook and bullet forums, snopes.com, photobomb and comedycentral.
I still didn't recognize the puma picture until someone traced the cat to yours truly.
The link took me to puma on the prowl, camera trapped about a hundred yards from my house.
Had some good chuckles reading the comments.
The rubber snake doesn't fool all the monkeys, but in many of them it stirs deep fears.
They're the ones that give you the best laughs.
