We come from monkeys, swingin' in the trees
Little bit of monkey inside you and me
Monkey in the middle
Monkey on your back
It's a fundamental problem but a scientific fact: we come from monkeys!
- Emerald Rose, "We Come From Monkeys!"
So - completely unintentionally, monkeys have become my daughter's mascot. Fully half of her toys and clothes are monkeys, monkey-themed, or have monkeys on them. We didn't plan this or buy these for her, they just sort of... accumulated.
Open thread! Monkeys are awesome! They brachiate! (True fact: I ask the GM to let me take "brachiation" as a skill in every roleplaying game I play in.) Some of them have prehensile tails! They have adorable almost-human faces! What's not to love? Do you have any cool trivia about monkeys, or stories about seeing monkeys in a zoo or in the wild? (Alternately, do you hate monkeys, and if so, why? Did one steal your keys, Night At The Museum-style?) Share!
Wednesday Reminder! Open threads are meant to be fun, chatty places to discuss anything that doesn’t “fit” into a deconstruction or other regular thread. This can be something totally off-the-wall and random, or it can be something interesting that a deconstruction prompted you to think of, but which would be derailing to get into in the deconstruction thread. When in doubt, move it over here - that’s what it’s for!
