I hate every ape I see, from chimpan-A to chimpanzee. No, you'll never make a monkey out of me!

This is a bit of an enigma.

On Facebook I recently found somebody named "Doc Zaius" who looks suspiciously like our own Doctor Zaius of blogger infamy. When I asked our Zaius about this denied the Doc Zaius of Facebook was in fact him.

Does Zaius have a psycho imposter who is aping him on Facebook?


(Facebook's "Doc Zaius.)



("Our" Doctor Zaius.)

You would have to admit the resemblance is uncanny.

But what really prompted me to post this was how impressed I was with the doppleganger's Facebook friends list. He's somehow surrounded himself with a bevy of hot babes and celebrities like Belinda Carlisle and Morgan Freeman. I checked their Facebook pages and they appear to be legit. Carlisle provides updates on practicing for Dancing with the Stars for instance.

Consider this- you're Belinda Carlisle who headed up a pretty popular female rock band in the 80's and went on to a successful solo career. In your Facebook email a friend request pops up from somebody who has taken on the persona of an ape scientist in a 70's sci-fi movie. Do you---

A) Report this headcase to Facebook for terms of use violations or
B) Ignore this request as this person is obviously unbalanced or
C) Say to yourself "what the hell" and confirm him as a friend.

That she chose the last option is all sorts of cool.

If it really is you Doctor Zaius, I salute you for the sheer chutzpah. If it's not... well, then I have a new hero.

I thought Belinda Carlisle turned into a Bible thumper a la Kirk Cameron?

The more friends you have, the more connections you can make. Entertainers typically green light just about everyone on Facebook/Myspace.

I wonder what Charlton Heston would've done?

I wonder if Carlisle denied friend requests from Bananarama members. I hear those two bands never got along.

In cyberspace, no one can hear you scream "Identity Theft!"

Ha! A cheap impostor, to be sure! I'll murderize him!
