    If I had a monkey, I would borrow my mums sewing machine and make my monkey a little monkey suit. Then if anyone said "Thats not a real monkey, it`s just a monkey suit, I can see the zipper", I could say "I bet you fifty dollars it is a real monkey" and when they said "that seems like a reasonable bet, you are on", my monkey would take off the monkey suit and they would have to pay me fifty dollars. I would buy drugs with the fifty dollars. For the monkey. So he wouldn`t mind spending his life in a monkey suit.

    My family used to own a monkey. Her name was Judy, and my parents had her before i was born. Apparently, she would hang out in the tree outside our house and scream whenever someone walked past, scaring the crap out of them. My parents would try and hose her down, and she would stand in the water and pretend she was having a shower. She also loved taking baths, which was odd, and taking care of a small stuffed gecko she pretended was a baby. Unfortunately, she had a nasty habit of biting you on the jugular if you wore a cologne she didn`t like, so my parents had to give her away.

    What they don`t tell you is that monkeys like to throw poo. Oh well. I can only imagine some Christmas day 50 years ago, when a little Susie opened up a little box for a cute little monkey only to have s** flung in her face. That or a dead, rotten monkey carcass...
