    omg the jaunty neck scarf!

  3. Now THAT’S being ready for your close up ! Uh.. is that monkey “watering” the photog’s hand ?

  4. JohnnyJohnny says:

    F. Stop Fitzgerald? Brilliant!

  5. 260Oakley says:

    If you ignore the warning in the caption, ur-ine for a surprise.

  6. Is he peeing???

  7. Call you Fitzi? I think Wizzy is more like it. 😆

  8. fleurdamour says:

    He is the mon-key grip.

  9. bob drummond says:

    Talk about having ” a monkey on your back ” !!!

  10. F Stop Fitzgerald really takes puns to a new height. Olympics-level punning, actually.

  11. I love how casual they both are about the hijinx going on…

  12. Thank goodness ! I wasn’t sure if I was seeing correctly. I guess I was. :o/

  13. That’s what it looked like to me

  14. F. Stop Fitzgerald is a *whiz* at what he’s doing

  15. “I can’t seem to focus on that monkey with the jaunty scarf. He was here just a second ago.” sneaky monkey…

  16. Theresa says:

    Sharp eyes. Ew, I’m afraid so. 😯

  19. Pat Trenner says:

    Indeed. Ten gazillion points to Brinke.

  20. SlaveToCat says:

    We probably don’t want to see the next couple of frames from the photo shoot.
    With that outfit I’m having flash backs to the Flying Monkeys in the Whizard of OZ.

  21. Rachael says:

    The name F. Stop Fitzgerald alone makes this a WIN! The peeing is just gravy, so to speak. 🙂

  22. Yeah, that’s what I think he is doing too….yucky.

  23. Sun Wukong says:

    Haha – is it me or is that monkey dressed like the Monkey King from the Chinese story Journey to the West?

  24. 😯 back story, please?

  25. There actually *is* a photographer goes by the name f-stop fitzgerald:


    If he was the human in the photo that would be just perfect.

  26. Fird Birfle says:

    euwwww I cannot *unsee* that now.

    Tr@um@tized fer life.

  27. Fird Birfle says:

    That photograper-hyooman is the new Job for our times. Imagine maintaining “focus” LITERALLY when such an event is occurring on one’s arm …..

    (“Job” as in the guy in the Bible, who knew what @ngst was, before we all got existentialist in the 1920s…)

  28. skippymom says:

    PEE! PEE! PEE!

  29. Fird Birfle says:

    thanks sk’mom 😉

  30. Fird Birfle says:

    the only bits, for which I can imagine the Big Green Moderayshun Machine eating up my comment marked 8:28 am, are the mentions of The Book of Christian Beliefs and of a different book by a Monsieur Marcel Proust. Otherwise there wasn’t anything even eyebrow-raising, that I perceive, in my words…

    Moderately Puzzled.

  31. there is no logic for the mod rules.

  32. here, fird, have some peanut butter cups..

  33. pssst: it’s from posting too many comments at once! i get like that after about a pot of coffee 🙂

  34. oops, and the “creative” spellingks. 🙂

  35. hey Sharps, no one has really explained to us why the OED-correct spellin’ of Puppeh gets us in there… can you shed some light?

  36. It’s Ms ClassyPants again! 🙂

  37. And I thought maybe it was the all-caps sometimes? No?

  38. skippymom says:

    By the way, that is my idea of a man–not one of these juvenile types that most of you ladies here seem to go for.
    (Although his hairstyle makes me just a bit nervous.)

  39. One of my requirements is that the man would have to be loving and tolerant with animals. I think this one qualifies. 🙂

  40. skippymom says:

    Yeah, cj, I’d say he’s tolerant if he’s fine with having a monkey pi** all over him. That pretty much satisfies my requirements!

  41. i hadn’t noticed. are you saying that “puppy” gets you in the pokey?

  42. newp.

  43. Where had I seen that getup before? The big little choreographer in the 50’s: Hermes Pan troglodytes

  44. yay!

  45. Oh yes, p*ppy throws us in the slammer every time. Apparently not for you though. hmmph! P*ppy! P*ppy! P*ppy!… 🙂

  46. let’s see:


  47. YES. I just tried.

  48. Any good snacks available today?

  49. Fird Birfle says:

    @ Sharpy: qui, MOI??????

    “why I nevvah…..”

    *fans self, delicately, yet furiously, at the same time*

  50. Fird Birfle says:

    YUM thx ma’am 🙂
    Don’t mind, if I do !!!!

  51. Mary (the first) says:

    She says “newp” but it always seems to work for me…

  52. Crystalrabbit7 says:

    That’s what I thought too – awesome outfit =) Now all he needs is a little gold/silver staff to twirl around

  53. whoa. that’s not right.

    … tromp
    ………………………..tromp *bang, crash* *OOF!* *rezzemfrezzin dang kids*
    —-[tinker] [tinker] …

  54. Nice variation on the theme of POOP! POOP! POOP!

  55. …totally in keeping with Madame Skippymom’s elimination themes….:)

  56. bob drummond says:

    OH MY — ! He’s peeing on the guy’s hand !!!!

  57. bob drummond says:

  58. bob drummond says:
