Talking Mongoose Refused To Live As A Prisoner To Your Hidebound Taxonomy

"Gef—who spelled his name phonetically, 'because he didn't know how to spell,' Mr. Josiffe says—self-identified as a mongoose, but Mr. Josiffe has plenty of doubts. 'The whole thing about a talking mongoose is a red herring,' he says. Given the Irvings' descriptions, he says Gef was smaller than a mongoose, perhaps a weasel or a squirrel."

This is the worst sort of clickbait.

@Gef the Talking Mongoose: It's nice to see you've overcome your preference for orality.

"Gef" as in "Gif" or "Gef" as in "Jif" or…?

@libmas : It's actually pronounced "eighth wonder of the world."

Alternate take : "you fat-headed gnome"

Communism is a red herring.
