Drabble: Any Publicity

Any Publicity

Science is always striving for the next bit of totally useless information, and it was no different when a laboratory in Wisconsin discovered that a rare species of macaque has, in fact, the worst-smelling breath in the animal kingdom. Well, strongest-smelling, if you want to eliminate the subjective language.

Of course, when this bit of news got out, it was natural when major toothpaste and mouthwash manufacturers started looking for the publicity opportunity.

But the backlash from the animal rights folks was far more damaging than expected.

Who would have expected there’d be controversy surrounding ScopeTM’s monkey trial?
