Why Don’t You Come Up and See Me Sometime?

We can monkey around, heh-heh. Well, to be precise, we can lemur around, but that isn’t as catchy as… OK, to be extremely precise, we can sifaka around, but now we’re getting a bit more provocative than I was shooting for.

A Touchy ‘Tocktober Topic

“(Ugh, it’s that time of year again, when that Cute Overdraft website goes around taking sneaky pictures of butts and then writes silly things about them. Well, they better not try that with me, or…)”


“What?! You were behind me the whole time, weren’t you, you naughty scamps! Well, I hope you got my good side, ah ha ha ha! Seriously, though, I’m going to need to rip your arm off now…”
