B B Wurge

B.B. Wurge is a pseudonym for a children's writer who gives his address as an elevator in Manhattan. He insists that his career began as an entertainer in a primate house, regaling appreciative crowds with such tricks as scratching his armpits and swinging from a rope by one foot. (Actually, he's quite smooth-shaven and very shy.)
