I have a question about monkeys. How difficult is it to snag a giant monkey? And why don't giant monkeys have velcro paws? And why is my spell checker so woefully stupid that it fails to recognize the word "velcro?"

I must admit, even though I've been around Woot a long time, that picture was the first time I've seen giant monkeys. Do they scream also?

Tater, will you marry me in California, so I can take half your property in a quickie divorce?

(all jokes people, all jokes)



As long as the divorce isn't the only quickie involved.

I never once tried to infer they were Bowl of Cereal's. Simply unopened woot boxes.

It isn't my fault you people get all excited at the site of woot labeled cardboard around here.

I'm innocent. (I don't often get to say that.)

I have a giant monkey. Sadly, I only have that version. I would do almost anything for any of the other varieties.

Got my Butt On a Chair!

- typical black 6 pack/lunch cooler
- Star Wars (Han Solo) bobblehead
- 250GB IDE Seagate drive from 2004. Spins up, but has I/O errors. So I enjoyed removing the magnets.
- some kind of off-brand open-box iPod alarm clock. Might actually be neat, if it works with my iPhone 3G (kinda doubt it though).

How can something be better than nothing if nothing is perfect?

Yes they do scream, and honestly after having mine, and playing with other people's (that's what she said) smaller versions, I think it actually screams louder than the other ones.

Very cool. I might be willing part with one of mine, since you don't have a smaller version. If you don't mind having pre-owned monkey.

After being trapped in boxes for so long, I'd be afraid I would open them to find screaming monkey skeletons. Either that or have my face eaten by flying starving monkeys.

Those poor monkeys, how do you sleep at night?

You didn't infer. We inferred. If you had done anything, you would have implied.

Jillian was her name
She was sweeter than aspartame
Her kisses reconfigured my DNA
And after that I never was the same

And I loved her even more
Than Marlon Brando loved souffle
She was gorgeous, she was charming
Yeah, she was perfect in every way

Except she was always using the word "infer"
When she obviously meant "imply"
And I know some guys would put up with that kind of thing
But frankly, I can't imagine why

And I told her, I said
"Hey! Are we playing horseshoes, honey?
No, I don't think we are!
You're close! (Close!)
But no cigar!"

Yea, you can't say that. This is the internets do we really need to have proper grammar?

I used to have 3 giant ones...they sold them twice, if I remember correctly.

I usually give all but one of each cape away as gifts.

If I kept them all...well...

Hmm, my giant monkey doesn't have velcro paws. Maybe it's a new breed.

Unless they sent you a super special monkey, the glow in the dark monkeys are normal sized.

On a serious note, if anyone is willing to ever part with some of their monkeys, I would be willing to take some off your hands.... I am sure we could work out an agreement of some sort! ;)
