Have you seen the “finger moneys” too? What about those “box-O-monkeys” deals? Also, I heard rumors of Chinese “inkwell monkeys” that would live in desk lobbies and help fill ink wells of scribes, but I think these might only be legends. Keep the monkey business coming though!
Better stick with a sock monkey.
