At O'Hare ariport in Chicago a few weeks ago, I stopped at a Chicago Field Museum souvenir stand and was eyeballing a funky stuffed animal... the vendor told me it is a "Bat Eared Fox" from Africa. He then told me that Bob Weir had been through the previous week and bought one! Didn't even take a bag, but just walked through the airport proudly carrying his new Bat Eared Fox (pictured in link). He had no way of knowing that I'm a fan of Weir's or of the Dead, so I don't think he would have made it up... when I got back to the Gate and told my kids, they gave me that glazed over "oh, he's talking about the Dead again" look, but I thought it was pretty neat.
Wanger on his website talked about how he and Weir were always seated next to each other alphabetically...
