Who out there are the "monkey with fez's" types?? I know I've seen many posts making reference but could not find on the search. I was in a small, crappy shop at the local mall Sunday and what should I stumble across but a playing card box with two monkeys playing poker, both wearing the appropriate head gear. I asked to see it and was also shown an approximately 16" X 12" oval mirror with two monkeys holding the frame that looked like a coiled rope.
Both items were the best items in this shop. Card box was $25 and the mirror was $45. They said they are a big seller for them. Anyone interested (I know your out there) drop me a line for shop location.

OK, so the client decided monkeys in Fezzes were too weird for their brand, but I did manage to sneak a red fez-shaped lampshade on this monkey lamp just for my own inside joke. Got the monkey lamp on Ebay - not sure if the contest is still open to win it though! The monkey to the left on this webpage is the small version of the ads that ran in the subways.

Tikifish, are you teh genius behind the Telus monkey campaign? Or one of many such geniuses? Mrs. emspace and I LOVE those ads SO MUCH! The TV ones, the posters and billboards...I thought the penguin and the hip-hoppin' chameleon were amazing, but once they went whole-hog monkey (or maybe that's just "whole-monkey") at Christmas, I was over the moon.

It's true: MONKEYS RULE! As thecardcheat said,

Yeah, that's me! I worte all the Telus monkey stuff. My partner and I came on board last year so I can't claim the penguins, that was my friends stuff, but the Monkeys are pure Tikifish! Glad you like it.

By the way, that monkey peed in my eye!

As the trainer said, in his wisdom - "when the monkey's up above you, DON'T LOOK UP". Some sage advice that came too late.

Back before I became a dad and all of the free time got sucked out of my life, I ran a website called Mad Science Laboratories. Besides angering people by pretending to actually run the Schrödenger's Cat experiment, my friend and I distributed icons we made there.

One of my first sets had a money with a fez, based on a candle sold by Archie McPhee.



I also did these, which are appropriate for this site:


Monkey with fezes are the best because a) monkeys are funny, b) fezes are funny, so therefore monkey with fezes are atom-splittingly funny.

L.L.
Totally agree with your position on monkeys with fezes. You sound like your a little bit disenchanted with parenthood (as was I when the first little bundle arrived). I still continued to live a semi-normal life, trying to incorporate the new arrival into the family routine. At first my child didn't like hanging out at Barney's Beanery & the Starwood until 2:00 in the morning, but he eventually adjusted and today he's a happy, healthly bass player in a respected heavy metal grind core band!
