This lovely reminder of the depths of human ridiculousness was tucked inside last Sunday's newspaper. This is why the terrorists hate us:
In case it doesn't jump out at you from the image above (or you are too distracted by the hideously creepy fake baby monkey face), the obvious is stated across the top of the page: The most incredibly lifelike baby monkey ever!
We've finally done it. We have achieved. Forget about that real baby monkey you've been saving up for. It is now obsolete.
But for those of you wondering if, for your five easy payments of only $27.99, you're getting one of those crappy vinyl monkeys that are always falling apart and fade to albino the first time you leave it in the sun, set those fears aside:And believe me, you will be touching. And how. Because fake baby monkeys don't bruise and they won't be telling their day-care provider anything.
