“Bob” Langurson is the latest sorta-biped creature
to declare for the Republican nomination.
SAN DIEGO — Not intimidated by an already crowded field and hugely daunting odds, Eugene “Bob” Langurson announced Monday, at the Primate Pavilion at the San Diego Zoo, that he will run for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential election.
Langurson, a self-described “mongrel,” laughs out loud when asked about his “genetic background.” “That’s funny to me, you know, because I like never see or hear any of you press guys asking that Trump character about his background. Langurson is quick to add, “Despite my name, I’m not related to the ‘Langur monkeys.’ Next to humans, the Macaque family, from which I derive, are like, the most widespread primate genus, ranging from Japan to Afghanistan.”
Taking a leisurely moment to scratch himself, he eventually continues: “You’re no doubt aware that several species of macaques have been used extensively in animal testing, particularly in the neurosciences. My mother was a neuroscientist, and well, that’s how she met my father.” Reacting to a few titters from the crowd of reporters,Langurson says, “I know what you’re thinking, because you’re typical human beings; always in the gutter. But I’ll be releasing my birth certificate, along with a one hour video which details the completely ethical way in which I was created.”
When asked about his chances of getting anywhere near the other candidates on a debate stage, Langurson said “Call me Bob. Listen. I’ll admit that it’s going to be an uphill battle. And I know that many in my own party will automatically dismiss me because they think I look like a monkey; but I— hey— is that fruit? I lovvvvvvvvves me some fruit; gimme gimme…”
