Open Thread: Monkeys

Hosted by a monkey with big eyes

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! 

And as always, please post new comments, rather than replying to other comments!

Usually older kids understand this difference.
This will only make your son or daughter feel bad so this can cause them to end up worse.
