Ah that made me smile. I had Kenya stuck in my head for about two years. Now probably another two after rewatching.

Why do I get the feeling that in 5 years' time, I'm going to randomly think of a baby baboon without knowing why?

I'll continue this line of discussion as soon as I finish making my peanut butter jelly time sandwich.

Looked more like an oboe.

A version for people who aren't on acid.

Kenya is old and busted.

Somalia is the new hotness.

Sure, but a homeless hobo, a homeless hobo going loco, a homeless hobo going loco talking slo-mo playing the oboe, just isn't that endearing. Not that I don't feel for a homeless hobo, a homeless hobo going loco, a homeless hobo going loco talking slo-mo playing the oboe, it's just that it's more complicated a situation to deal with than a baby baboon. People need cheering up, not reminding of the awful rate of homelessness among those with mental illness.

Every 2 years or so i remember this site exists and go bust out my Strawberry Pancake/Trevor mp3s and watch Late Night Shopping 100x in a row.

It's a tradition. Shalom!

Is this the new BADGER BADGER?

That Baby Baboon is bouncing on its buttocks, which are apparently not contained by its diaper. That suggests a rather incompetent diaper-installer to me.

Was this supposed to make me laugh or put my fist through my monitor? Because somebody owes me a new monitor...

You try putting a diaper on a baby baboon while the mother is trying to tear your face off!

Yeah, well, the animated text within the piece jokes that the main character is a mandrill, not a baboon, but baboon was easier to rhyme. So there you go, I think.

I wonder if Weebl is in competition with the people who did Spong Monkeys.

What is the name of the style of music on evidence in Baby Baboon? I'm tempted to call it boogie, and it seems to be based on 12-bar blues, but I don't know how to categorize it.

The main problem with Weebl's Stuff is that it contains earworms that can only by successfully dislodged by other songs from the same site. I can only hope that copies of the flash animations will survive into the distant future where secret human resistance cells will use them to drive their telepathic alien overlords to madness.

Along with Foamy the Squirrel and Invader Zim, I associate this sort of video with the kids from high school who would run around going "Muffins!" in a high-pitched voice when they weren't playing DDR or having naked parties which I always excused myself from.
