Huge Blue Monkey perfect condition – $20

You have to have it your kids will love it. It’s over 2 feet tall! Here are some pics below. If you have any other questions just e-mail me at xxxx.xxxxx@yahoo.com


That’s right, a huge blue monkey. Monkeys, as you know, are marsupials who live in the ocean. Their gills help them swing from tree to tree underwater. Their plush fur helps them survive in the Arctic jungles. Their diet consists mainly of tamales and Fun Dip, and they are world’s primary producer of elbow macaroni.

(Now, in all fairness, there is something called a Pacific Monkeyfish. It looks a little different than the one being advertised, though, so I don’t think that’s what’s causing the confusion here:)


That’s not even a little bit cuddly.

I’m crediting this one to “D.L.”; they’ll know why.

    I think this person meant “Blue Meany,” like in the Beatles song. Or perhaps he/she was just high, and was seeing monkeys everywhere.

    The Blue Meanies were fist-things, though, not FISH-things.

        That was supposed to say “our”. I’d swear I changed that.

    Here’s what I think happened (this is the only explanation that will keep my head from imploding): Her kids have an oversized, blue menagerie of which they are getting bored, so she’s unloading the lot, creature by creature, and simply uploaded the picture of the giant blue FLOUNDER instead of the giant blue monkey. Please, God, tell me that is what happened.

    Either that or it’s some really weird allusion to evolution. A little shout-out to Darwin. Take the fish home, and in a few hundred thousand years, you’ll have a monkey.

    Assuming that she really did some how mistake a flounder for a monkey, if that thing’s actually 2 foot tall, that means her baseboards are a foot high. WTF?

    Just so you know, the line from the movie is “Just keep swimming” not “Keep on swimming”.

    Maybe the person just mixed up the photos?

    Five little fishes were swimming near the shore;
    One took a dive and then there were four.
    Four little fishes were swimming out to sea;
    One went for food, and then there were three.
    Three little fishes, “Now what shall we do?”
    One swam away, and then there were two.
    Two little fishes were having great fun;
    But one took a plunge, then there was one.
    One little fish, “I’ll dress up like a monkey.”
    Well, he did and then it got funky.

    Hope everyone gets to enjoy a pleasant 3-day weekend

      [aquarist Corey] Brine shrimp Sea monkeys aren’t even a little bit cuddly either, unless of course you’re an angelfish and by “cuddly” you mean “delicious.”

        Never understood sea monkeys. Hey kids, look, tiny bug-like things in water you can see with a magnifying glass and look not one bit like monkeys!

    I’ll buy a blue monkey, without you.
    He’ll be so blue, just thinking about you.
    With his fins edged in gold
    on a blue fish-shaped bod.
    He’s just as messed up
    as Sparky! Oh My Gohd!

    Sorry, it’s Saturday, it’s early, and I already need a nap. Carry on!

    Ah, the elusive fish-monkey. This rare species resides in the jungles of Asia. He has evolved over millions of years to have the ability to disguise himself as a giant blue fish. Unlike most evolutionary leaps, this ability has actually backfired– instead of keeping the monkey safe from predators, it has actually increased the species’ death rate tenfold. Experts believe this is due to the fact that a giant blue fish in a tree is much more easily spotted than a brown monkey.
