is a simple Flash game about a stretchy monkey (sadly, the monkey does not play banjo). Don't touch the spiders!

The punkiest Monkey that ever popped from an egg on a mountain top, the one and only Monkey from cult Japanese TV series Monkey Magic
, is finally coming back to our TV screens
after a 30 year absence. Monkey will be played in the new series by Shingo Katori
and even with blonde hair, in the role of Monkey he will no doubt tease the Gods and everyone and, presumably, have some fun while he's at it.

It's good to see a local advertiser with the guts to go for a "funny" ad campaign. I imagine these get a good response. If I lived in Oregon, this place would get my business (well, if they sold Hondas). Viva la Trunk Monkey!

Monkeys down tools
. - Demand fair pay for a fair day's work
" Researchers taught brown capuchin monkeys to swap tokens for food. Usually they were happy to exchange this "money" for cucumber.
But if they saw another monkey getting a grape - a more-liked food - they took offence. Some refused to work, others took the food and refused to eat it.

I'll say it: It's time someone did something about the Monkeys. Over the last two years they have established a clear cut pattern of terror & harassment in countries ranging from Eastern India
, Sri Lanka
or New Dehli
, and the fact remains that it's only a matter of time before these crazed foreign monkeys make their way to places I could actually find on a map, or possibly even America, (possibly in this guy's pants
). When they come, and they will, will our leaders
protect us from their savage rampage? Or is it too late - are they already among us

The Journey to the West
is one of China's most popular literary classics. This site illustrates one section of this important story, the birth of the Monkey King, with 100 beautiful images. You can also take the time to read selections from several other Chinese classics, notably The Romance of the Three Kingdoms
, The Tale of the Water Margin
and one of my all time favorites, The Romance of the Western Chamber
. These works, and others on the site, are important in their own right, but are also significant because they are source material for Chinese film, TV and especially for Jingju
, which Westerners call Beijing opera

Bush or Chimp closes shop.
Another stalwart anti-Bush site has folded in light of recent events. The irreverent bushorchimp.com
, dedicated to visual comparisons of the President and various look-alike primates has closed down. I understand that we're in the midst of a crisis, but is Bush now beyond criticism? Ok, maybe pictures that compare Bush to monkeys aren't exactly thoughtful criticism... Still, NOW where am I going to get novelty t-shirts for friends and family this Xmas?

is one of the funniest, cutest sites I've seen in a long time. I was really surprised it hadn't been 'filtered before (correct me if I'm wrong). If you need a little break in your day for something goofy, it's a good place to turn. Personal fave: the pictures of him going Trick-or-Treating...
