Whoo!!! My Monkey Smokes Again!
« on: June 20, 2003, 08:12 PM »
Thanks to a kind gentleman on Ebay selling replacement cigarettes anyway.

My mother's old paper mache smoking monkey, a truly classic toy, is back in action as of tonight.  My replacement 20 cigarettes came in the mail, and I immediately got my monkey from his home in the Cantina, and let him smoke 'em, cuz he gotz 'em.

He worked flawlessly, blowing smoke rings like he was in the 1950's all over again. :)  

This is easily one of the funniest things ever to me, and while simple, I am entertained more with every puff.  I had one as a kid, and I'm still surprised any of these managed to get into my age-range.  They're hardly "toys" by today's standards, that's for sure.

I have a nice set of plastic monkeys I need to try out, and now's the perfect time...  

Off to play with fire!

Good to hear Jesse.  I assume you've already posted this over at GH, right?  I know the monket enthusiasts there (especially John) will be most pleased to hear of such a cool monket toy...   ;)

So do they have any similar smoking llamas?   ???   :-*

Hmmm, llama's wouldn't fit as well I don't think...   :-\  These were a simple bubblegum machine toy afterall.

I can't get over him smoking his little cigs...  Even leaves a roach when he's done.  Too funny. ;D

You should really change the title of this thread.  I'm finding it hard to restrain comments. ;D

33 PUFFS BABYYYY!!!!  YEAH![/b]

Hell yeah, he just puffed a blunt 33 times, and I counted about 20 decent smoke rings!

It's like a game, I should start gambling with these.

I've not had this much fun in ages, seriously. ;D

OH YEAH!!!! 41 PUFFS TONIGHT!

OH YEAH!!!!  41 PUFFS TONIGHT!
A very nice run indeed, tonight my monkey got 41 good puffs, and a ton of good smoke rings.  A very good run indeed, but I must admit that cancer stick was a tad longer than the others, just a hair though.

I've still yet to open one of the 12 plastic ones I won, which are of the same brand in the photo provided by DSJ.

I'm not sure how well those work, but I really need to try those out at some point.  Their cigs are definately different though.  Longer, but not as thick (And not painted to look like pack cigarettes...  Look more like joints or hand-rolled zig-zags).

Hmmm, I wonder if the guy making replacements can make stogies to go with my monkey?  Hmmm...

Link saved, and many thank yous for it.

On a smoking monkey note, please observe some recent auction wins of mine!

A cigarette case...  Very classy!



And a cigarette-incense burner (the cigs are incense I guess?) made of ceramic, and wearing the classic fez design.



I'm ecstatic for both personally...  Excellent additions at low, low, low cost.

Recently I also used a lovely monkey .jpg to illustrate a point I was making about 2 of the more, uhm, "youthful" members at GalacticHunter one evening.

The link for the image was:

http://www.postcardworld.co.uk/cards/subject/animals/swords.jpg

But I'm not sure it's working any longer now.  A funny image of monkeys fighting with sabers while other dapper monkeys looked on.   It did give a strong visual of what I felt the "argument" would look like in real life as well.
