In the interest of background information, I thought I'd post this image of the Fool's Cap Map, a 16th-century artifact that reflects the worldview of cartographers in Renaissance Europe. I talk about the map at length is a feature on the Monkey King being a global comic hero of the 21st century. Taylor Mac in part of that same tradition, which Dan Conover makes note of in today's Post and Courier.
