My whole post has spoilers so ye be warned!




"Brain juice" from a lemur does sound kind of odd. I wonder if maybe there are some actual vaccines/medicines made from lemur, it would seem like Eoin Colfer to take some cure that few people know about and incorporate them into the books. When I heard about the lemur I was actually kind of grossed out. :D

I don't even know what a lemur is, so I can't join that discussion. But come on, wouldn't the brain fluid of a cow sound just as gross?

From wikipedia (I couldn't get the picture to show up here, so I had to make do with a link):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Lemurs.jpg
Also, if you've ever seen the movie Madagascar, there are quite a lot of lemurs in that movie. Animated, but still.

Yeah, brain fluid of a cow would be more mundane, but why is it brain fluid at all? It is sort of weird.

No more gross than certain things you eat.



And of course Eoin Colfer is weird- Just look at his hoard of followers.

maybe Eoin just got tired of having everything "normal". A lot of people think about fairies and traveling from different places and times and stuff but no one thinks of a disease to be cured with brain fluid... :D

I thought he was just pulling lemur out of his *** as an example, but the cover has lemurs on it.

Maybe he really liked the movie "Madagascar?" And also likes to "Move it move it?"

maybe he's an indiana jones fan.. wasn't it in the Temple of Doom that they ate monkey brains? but he didn't want to TOTALLY rip it off, so he made it a lemur, which is practically a monkey.

or he has an unhealthy loathing for Zaboomafoo.

It's not just in Indiana Jones, Monkey Brain is a delicacy in India.

And a Lemur is a type of monkey.

He could've gotten the idea anywhere. Maybe just wiki'd some things, then ended up at lemurs? Or he liked the sound of it... Let's ask him where he got it from! And where he got the brain fluid from. That's really gross...
