Sometimes it's fun to see where CHATTER readers come from. Do a Google search for the words "chatter" and "Ron Davis" and there we are up top where we belong.
But a looksee for Ron Davis might take you anywhere -- to a bad-ass company that makes radiators; to a California real-estate agent who scarfed up the web address of our dreams; to a jazz musician in Canada who candidly has a much better mugshot than anyone around this joint.
There is an upside. Google the words "television," "chatter" and "chimp" (as a recent reader did) and voila -- there's CHATTER at No. 1, unfairly pushing aside such fine sites as Mr. Monkey's Index of Famous Monkeys. Turns out there was a chimp named Chatter who appeared on Chicago television in 1953. "Possibly the finest chimpanzee to appear on the small screen," Mr. Monkey writes, and who are we to argue with his knowledge?
We do know this: Searching Google images for Ron Davis is not something you want to do on a regular basis. Not unless you appreciate photos like this one, this one, or especially this one.
