    Seriously with the Mexican accent? "You were looking for a chob last fall, ees it not? Well, I need an asseestant." This is a professor being quoted here.

    I love old school science fiction. It's always funny when the story takes place in the "far future" but it happens to mention the year. In this case, the story takes place in 1971, a full decade before I was born.Nevertheless, it's a fun story. It's an idea I've never heard before. What if an epidemic caused us all to grow hair like gorillas? It's short, funny, and even has a little bit of a surprise ending. It's a worthwhile read for sure.

    I read this story because it was nominated for the Retro-Hugo Award. This is literally a shaggy-dog story (well, shaggy-human, really). In 1971 (!) a virus causes all of humanity to develop thick pelts of fur. The story is mainly told for humor, especially the zinger at the end. However, the racist language is offputting in this day and age.

    This was nominated for the 1939 Retro-Hugo Award for Best Short Story.It was a cheesy story about a "future" episode during which everyone started getting very hairy. It tried to be funny and clever, but fell flat. It wasn't helped by the outdated portrayals of women and Mexicans.
