HAPPY MONKEY!!!


Via PZMyers/Pharungula:
Perhaps you have been pondering the meaning of the new traditional greeting, Happy Monkey! (important usage note: it is not Merry Monkey, nor is it Happy Monkey Day. It is simply "Happy Monkey", full stop. Trying to change the phrase means you are waging war on the Monkey, and you know how they will respond.) I haven't. I've been bogged down in the end-of-semester grind for the last week, writing tests, giving tests, grading tests, and there has been little room in my brain for deep philosophical thought.

But then, just a few minutes ago, I reached an end. The exams and papers were all marked and graded, and I filled out the forms and submitted them to the registrar. And I had an epiphany. Happy Monkey is not a day, not a greeting card, not just a phrase. Happy Monkey doesn't come from a store. Maybe Happy Monkey…perhaps…means a little bit more. And what happened then…? Well, my small Monkey grew three sizes that day!

Happy Monkey is any moment that you feel the burdens lifted, that you feel a lightening of the mood, that you feel puckish and prankish and like kicking your heels. Happy Monkey can strike any time, any day!

So Happy Monkey, everyone! And may you have many Happy Monkeys in days to come!
Ps: If men were trained from childhood to auto-fellate, it would solve a LOT of the world's problems, cuz we'd never leave the house...

HAPPY MONKEY!

Sure this has nothing to do with the monkeyfister awards? that would work for me particularly well.

That's a perfect metaphor for the self-sucking Republican party. Since no one else is sucking them, they'll just suck themselves on Fox "News."

'Tis the season to indulge human nature 'midst the gloom.

Said simian has the right attitude, 'cept a tendency to miss both the pretty miss and the pouncing predator.

Happy New Year, WGG!
