Never underestimate the power of poo throwing.
That is true. I'm sure that If I ever had poo thrown in my face, I'd be of a different opinion. Note to self: stay away from monkeys.

Wait! What about a cross between monkeys and bears? Then you'd have the best of both.

Whoever asked if monkies could potentially saddle bears... yeah, now all I can imagine is a terrifying Monkey-on-Bear calvalry sweeping over the land, destroying everything in its path.

They love nothing better than to see their enemies driven before them, and hear the lamentations of their women :(.

Ever seen the movie Planet of the Bears? No, no you haven't.

'Nuff said.

I can't decide, I can't decide.

What if the Wicked Witch dispatched the Winged Bears?

What if Smokey the Monkey told us not to start forest fires?

What if Goldilocks did a home invasion with the Three Monkeys?

Would you panic if stocks went from a bull to a monkey market?

Would it be more fun with a barrel of bears?

Could it ever get cold enough to freeze the whatcha-ma-call-'ems off a brass bear?

Could you monkey the brunt or be cross as a monkey?

Big question: do bears eat bananas?

I can't stop. I have to leave my house.

What if the Wicked Witch dispatched the Winged Bears? The movie would have been over right there.

What if Smokey the Monkey told us not to start forest fires? Who listens to monkeys about *safety*?

What if Goldilocks did a home invasion with the Three Monkeys? Goldilocks would have had her face ripped off :(.

Would you panic if stocks went from a bull to a monkey market? Considering there might be poo flinging in the near future, absolutely!

Would it be more fun with a barrel of bears? I can see one very angry bear stuffed in a barrel... and it doesn't sound like fun.

Could it ever get cold enough to freeze the whatcha-ma-call-'ems off a brass bear? Depends on whether or not it's a polar bear.

Could you monkey the brunt or be cross as a monkey? Oh, Lord, Yes O_o. Monkies are terrifying.

Big question: do bears eat bananas? If we consider Yogi, the answer is: is it stolen? Then yes!

Damn it, they are still neck and neck!

What about Monkees vs. Da Bears. Sure Ditka is driving, but I think all the girls trying to touch Davey Jones would cause such a glut on the field that the band could sneak into the end zone.

Bears.
Monkeys are clever, but bears are just... bears.

And as someone who has spent a good deal of time working at a zoo, I feel qualified to say this...lol.

Nathan,
If this is your cryptic confession to loving Joanna Newsom (who has a song named "Monkey & Bear"), then you just elevated in my mind from uber-fab to super fly. And that, my friend, is really saying something...

Intriguing question.

And one, I confess, I never gave much thought to. Until now.

I'd have to say bears. They have a certain majesty to them that can neither be denied nor ignored.

Ahhhhh, but they never blame the freakish paranormal attacks on Monkeys do they? It's always a Bear attack that turns out to be something seriously more sinister..

On that note, I think I'll have to shake my head and say that probably Monkeys are better. You've got to be cunning to maintain that kind of "cute" persona... I mean, the ninjas must feel a twinge of jealously at how easily they've got us fooled...

A friend emailed me this youtube video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=590_mhAu ... re=related. Two things came to mind.

1. I wonder how many stories this clip could inspire, and
2. Hey! Nathan likes monkeys, he's gotta love this.

Sometimes monkeys can seem so human.

Enjoy.
