I blame http://monkeyneeds.com/ for getting George Michaels’ “Monkey” stuck in my brain today.
They just don’t make music like they used to, do they?
Personally, Peter Gabriel’s “Shock the Monkey” (http://www.lyricsfreak.com/p/peter+gabriel/shock+the+monkey_20107488.html and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oaSZxd9jOY) is still my favorite monkey-themed song. It’s just as confusing as Michaels’ “Monkey” but with more of an edge.
But back to what started this whole mess, http://monkeyneeds.com/ which is apparently the place to go if your monkey needs clothes, diapers or treats.
I don’t know why this ad popped up on the side of my Gmail account because I haven’t written to anyone about monkeys in weeks, but I naturally couldn’t resist clicking on the link just to see what insane corner of the Internet I would be transported to.
It turns out that Monkey Needs was sitting in that insane corner waiting for me.
Fortunately, Monkey Needs is more than a place to buy clothes, it’s also the place to go to buy a monkey (http://monkeyneeds.com/contact.html). For just $2,200 to $3,500 and you can have a marmoset or tamarin to call your own.
What would be the point of owning a monkey if you didn’t dress it up for the holidays? Festive Christmas and Halloween outfits for your pet primate are available at http://monkeyneeds.com/new_page_1.htm.
Primate owners have to shop somewhere and Monkey Needs is there to fill the void.
And there’s nothing crazy about owning a monkey, right? Perfectly normal people keep monkeys as pets http://www.mjsite.com/images/mjbubbles.jpg.
