Musings of a crossword puzzle mutterer

What if the rare endangered aye-aye (my, my, sometimes it's ai-ai) is just a self-seeking stutterer? He'd have no time for a you-you, much much less for a me-me. Does he constantly assent or now and then vote nay-nay? Does he look for a greener tree or does territoriality make that a jungle no-no? If this lemur gets bored with climbing, make bets he'd like a yo-yo. He could even be trained to yay-yay with a heavy metal combo. Whatever the truth of the matter in the wilds of Madagascar, I-I do hope the aye-aye doesn't utter his final oh-oh at a molten mass of aa.
