quote of the moment

"for it was an ape, a large-sized gorilla. it was in vain that i told
myself i was losing my reason: i could entertain not the slightest doubt
as to his species. but an encounter with a gorilla on the planet soror
was not the essential outlandishness of the situation. this for me lay
in the fact that the ape was correctly dressed, like a man of our world,
and above all that he wore his clothes in such an easy manner. this
*natural* aspect was what struck me first of all. no sooner had i seen
the animal than i realized that he was not in any way *disguised*."

-- pierre boulle, "planet of the apes"
