Seagoon:"Good. Now, about the Yehti. Tell me, are they tall and shaggy, or are they more squat with smooth skin?" Blooknok:"Yes, they are!" Seagoon:"Oh, and they walk upright like humans, and have the powers of telepathy, and in actual fact they are the missing link, the step from animals to man in one direction, while in another, far higher in intelligence and having the ability to possess one's mind?"
