I'd buy that monkey for a dollar! #6

Vintage 1930s rubber faced monkey.

Eyes are VERY early attempt at hologram type technology - can be seen from 2 angles"

Comes alive at night and sits on your pillow, staring at you from 2 angles

Warning: Monkeys can consume your life

From somewhere on the internet:

"When Joseph, the owner of an oil-and-gas equipment-inspection company, brought home his first black-capped capuchin six years ago, he says he never dreamed that monkeys would become a consuming part of his life.

Now he and his wife watch TV with their three capuchins and take vacations to owner-pet gatherings, called monkey picnics. Joseph Kirkland is now running for president of the nonprofit Simian Society of America."

Meet the Avenging Apes of Afrcia

Anti-poaching monkeys on a mission.

Tiny sticky dumpling monkeys

From somewhere on the internet:

"78-year-old Ning Xugeng resumed her childhood passion of making furry monkeys after retiring from teaching. These fluffy works of art are smaller than a thumb, but retain all the liveliness of their simian models. To make these feisty monkey miniatures, Ning uses of the buds of the Chinese magnolia, and cicada shells.

Ning Xugeng said: "This is a sticky dumpling booth operated by monkey vendors. Some are rolling dumplings, some are boiling them. Sitting on a nearby bench are a group of monkeys enjoying bowls of sticky dumplings. This one even cries for more. It's a very funny sight."

Yes, I'm sure it is - sadly, there was no picture of the thumb-sized monkey vendors available.

More monkeys in suits

The CareerBuilder monkey adverts were apparently the highlight of this year's US superbowl.

Still in suits, still funny...

Amazing predicting t-shirt monkey!

"Inji makes her prediction by choosing between shirts of the two teams"

Made for each other

"Rusti was upset at being in a new place, racing around, Rostrata said. Then he saw Violet peering at him from her window. He went over and spat on her.

Violet spat back.

But within 10 minutes, she was passing him a carrot through her window."

True love, indeed.
