Nim Chimpsky and the Awkward Giggling

I came across this book at work the other day, amusingly enough fairly soon after shelving a Nome Chomsky book. Whenever I thought the monicker to myself, I was greatly pleased, possibly in small part to an old meme where celebrities are photoshopped to have extremely tiny facial features and are then captioned with their names as if pronounced through a tiny, tiny mouth. "Nim Chimpsky," indeed.

Seriously, though, how does a book like this come about?

"Oh, you know, one day some buddies and I were just banging away on a couple of typewriters and this fell out."

Yeah, I'll buy that.

Woll Smoth, for reference.
