Wild Wild Life

Marlin was insatiable. We couldn't stop him from fooling around with the animals. It didn't matter what kind. What species. What gender. He would screw any of them.

The worst were the pigs. He loved the moist little piglets. They were so pretty and pink and sweet. He would always come along and help with the feeding. He would get them used to him holding them lovingly as he stuck something into their mouth for them to suckle. Eventually he would make a substitution. The zoo keeper was never quite figured out what was going on.

Marlin Perkins was a pervert.

Yeah, I loved Wild Kingdom, it was always in re-runs in my area in the 70s. Like someone wrote earlier, it was always funny seeing Marlon stand around and talk, while "Jim" did all the heavy work.

The one I most remember is "Jim" up to his waist in mud wresting some Anaconda while Marlon stayed in the Boat and talked.

When I was a kid I thought "Mutual of Omaha" was the TV station. I thought they were broadcasting from Omaha.

I drove through Omaha this afternoon, then past the hometowns of Bob Feller and John Wayne in Iowa. I'm in Des Moines tonight.
