Nope, it was Saturday, and I was taking my mother-in-law to the airport (after having been with us for a month....). She wasn't flying anywhere - I just wanted her out of the house.

It's not from an Egyptian, and don't call me mummy.

Otherwise, you are perfectly correct.

It is thin, yes. Not a Bonobo. Aren't Bonobos one of the few animals that enjoy rumpy-pumpy just for the hell of it?

Yes, they are. They're nicknamed bonkobo.

So, what other primates so we have? Orang-utan? Lemur? Langur? Douc?

Isn't it just a petrified/mummified human finger i.e. by freezing or by being in a peat bog?

I don't know why dentstudent would have a picture of a finger or whatever it is. Is the grey stuff hairs?

I think it's wrinkles in the skin, not hairs. But, of course, I could be wrong.

Is it one of the old 'ask the family' favorites?

The eye of a needle or a the tip of a used matchstick?
