    nothing wrong with baboons, they’re monkeys too! And gorgeous to boot (in that wizened old man kind of way).

  5. ??? Baboons are monkeys.

    Monkey fingernails are much in focus.

    All these pics = cuteness.

    I like these monkeys and The Monkees (RIP D. Jones) too.

    The End.

  7. So I just looked up the Wiki page for that song:

    “…the song is frequently assumed to be either an animal rights song or a reference to the famous experiments by Stanley Milgram described in his book Obedience to Authority.[3] It is neither, … [it’s] “a love song” that examines how jealousy can release one’s baser instincts; the monkey is not a literal monkey, but a metaphor for one’s feelings of jealousy.”

  8. Random monkey fact: recently when 6.5 millions of Linkedin passwords were leaked, they did an analysis of most popular ones. ‘Monkey’ is in top ten. Who doesn’t love monkeys?!

  9. sweet monkee luv.

  15. Yep, the Old World variety–usually have tails and tails are never prehensile.

  17. protomonk: just add popcorn and opposable thumb:

  18. The first monkee has a better mani/pedi than I do.
