Jinn changes colors at will

ith its origin unknown, this Jinn was first discovered in North America in the mid 1950s. It is believed that this particular Jinn had been in the United States since the early 1940s, due to American presence in Morocco and subsequent trading. Scientists were unaware of the presence of a wild Jinn in the US due to the misidentification of it as a rare squirrel. The Jinn might have seemed rare and special indeed, since it had the ability to change colors on will. After the death of the Jinn’s owner in 1974, the Jinn was given to the Alabama State University’s Biology Department.

Coming from a Muslim world, the Jinn as a species exist somewhere between angels and humans. They were created from fire before Adam and like their brothers and sisters are fallible, which means that they do not live forever and that they all have the potential to ultimately be saved or damned.

Jinn come in any form and therefore are difficult to pin down in the Animal Kingdom. They do share several characteristics that identify them eventually. The Jinn is a bit of a trickster and spends its time trying to steal God’s secrets. In a divine plan this is unacceptable to angels, so they are often cursed with bad luck. Secondly, the Jinn love whistling and can’t stay away from a good tune.

It would seem that this Jinn lived a good long time in the US, before linking its fate with a man named Freeman Davis. Whether Davis took the Jinn as a pet, or simply the constant association created their bond, nobody knows. Davis was better known as Brother Bones an overlooked professional whistler and bones player. No doubt everyone in America has heard Bones whistle his most famous song “Sweet Georgia Brown” and it is understandable how the Jinn made its way to Brother Bones’ doorstep.

Recognized more by sound than by biography, Brother Brown lived until he was 71 and no known bad luck fell upon him because of his association with the Jinn. Their joint death seems to be just another instance of sympathetic mortality. To prove its special-ness, the Jinn continued to change colors after death. To the present, this Jinn continues to be studied. Scientists, funded by a well-known German Fanny Pack manufacturer, hope to locate the DNA that would allow for a fabric that changes colors on whim.
