Happy Thanksgiving. Here is a gallery of photos of monkeys dressed as jockeys, riding other non-monkey animals.

Thank god it wasn't those dogs dressed as bees again. Or was it the other way around?

This is video of a monkey washing a cat combined with audio; it is in Apple QuickTime format

This is what Thanksgiving is really all about, anyway.

These photos brought a tear to my eye... excellent.

The least you could do is not/warn that you were posting to a heavily photoshopped gallery.

ab'd al'Hazred, you just made me very, very happy.

Don't make me post a link to the horse video.

Why aren't those monkeys (monki?) riding dogs wearing bee costumes? This could possibly be the greatest internet failure ever.

Great tags.

monkeys (monki?)

I think it's simply, monks.

Thanksgiving without monkeys is like a day without sunshine. : >

Oh! monkey

Do I sense someone hating on Beedogs, the premier repository of dogs in bee costumes on the internet?

What is the world coming to.

That's no monkey!! That's an APE!
posted by Balisong at 8:33 PM on November 24, 2005


So that's why they call 'em apehangers.

And finally, I'd like to give thanks for jonson and his many animals-in-humiliating-costumes posts. Amen.

Now that's how you make a fucking great single-link FPP. Those who want to see monkey jockeys know to click the link, those who don't know not to. why do people find that so hard? Kudos, jonson.

P.S. ab'd al'Hazred gets it too. We salute you.

I'm apalled that the link posted was to actual (or photoshopped) monks as jockies..(Jocks?)
posted by Balisong at 8:55 PM on November 24, 2005


I did not see a single monkey with jockeys in that post. I am, quite frankly, appalled!

Can you show me a picture of a monkey, dressed as a dog in a bee costume, riding a luck dragon with a pancake on it's head? Thank you.
posted by maryh at 10:22 PM on November 24, 2005


I am shamed by my inability to find such an image.
posted by jonson at 10:27 PM on November 24, 2005


I'd settle for a bee dressed up as either a dog or a monkey.
posted by blue_beetle at 10:46 PM on November 24, 2005


Bonus marks if the luck dragon, monkey, or dog vibrate.
posted by greycap at 10:48 PM on November 24, 2005


Does it have to be a bee? Or would a Bea dressed as a monkey suffice?
posted by ROU_Xenophobe at 10:49 PM on November 24, 2005


Bea Arthur dressed as a monkey vibrating atop a large mushroom would work, yes.
posted by maryh at 10:55 PM on November 24, 2005


You know, I look at these photos, and I think about what those Evilutionists are always babbling on about, y'know, about my grandpappy being a monkey and all...

So, I'm lookin' at the pictures and I don't see any resemblance or connection at all with monkeys and humans.

Might as well be catfish and squirrels.

Yikes! Might as well not!

Who the hell doesn't want to see monkey jockeys? Great post!

best of the web indeed.

wilful, I sincerely hope you posted that not in jest because this truly *is* the best of the web. There is nothing better than a monkey, except a monkey jockey.

The first photo in the gallery is to pics from "Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp" - the best show to ever grace Saturday morning TV. (The Secret Chimp link goes to a 15 minute documentary excerp on the making of the show.)

The chimp that played Lance got his vengance for being castrated on the vet that performed the operation - in front of a limousine load of network executives.

Sweet.

I have the whiplash mouse pad.

I like to show it to guests.

My wife thinks it's dumb.

just thought you should know.
