My Childhood Role Model

In the late 19th Century a baboon was employed as a (proved competent) railway signalman. I wouldn't trust the "village idiot" to be a competent signalman. source: http://www.earthfoot.org/lit_zone/signalmn.htm

The "earthfoot" name sets off alarm bells, but the article seems legit.
