    LONDON (AFP) - London Zoo unveiled a new exhibition -- eight humans prowling around wearing little more than fig leaves to cover their modesty. The "Human Zoo" is intended to show the basic nature of human beings as they frolick throughout the August bank holiday weekend. "We have set up this exhibit to highlight the spread of man as a plague species and to communicate the importance of man's place in the planet's ecosystem," London Zoo said. The scantily-clad volunteers will be treated as animals and kept amused at the central London zoo with games and music. Brendan Carr, 25, from Aylesbury, southern England, wrote a poem in his bid to get on the mountain. "I'm funky like a monkey and as cool as a cat, talk more than a parrot, up all night like a bat," it went. "I got a laugh like a hyena but get the hump like a camel, so cover me in fig leaves as I'm the ultimate mammal." I wonder if this will recieve more attention than the Calvin Klein "living model" exhibit/advertisement. Basically these people kick back and lounge like the ultimate couch potatoes while people pay to watch(sounds like reality tv). Not a bad gig indeed. Though don't we get enough of the jackasses running around everyday? Does this really merit an exhibit and do we really want be reminded that we are an over-consuming parasitic species?
