"Monkeys is funny..."

That was a line spoken during a Mid-South Cartoonists Association meeting back many years ago by artist Mike Norton and has become a catch-phrase among us who sling ink in Memphis.  We also find that nearly everyone out there, though, loves monkeys because, well, monkeys is funny.  And, being scientifically incorrect, that phrase encompasses apes as well.

Do you know the difference, by the way?  Monkeys have a tail.  Apes do not.

I've been of the opinion that it's because they eat bananas which are said to be a natural antidepressant.  The way they go through that fruit no wonder they are so dang happy.

And then, there are some which are just plain cracked-out on life.  The following video showed up on The Vine with a voice-over that has killed me every time I've watched it. 

And here is the original video.

So, hopefully, you've had a laugh and now know a little something about monkeys and apes.  And as GI Joe used to say: Knowing is half the battle.

Finally, my buddy Brad and I were talking about this great picture of some monkeys on a line and had to add Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" lyrics to the image.  We chose one as best; but, I like them all...

Covered by these monkeys and The Muppets...

and then...

"Hey, gurl, how you durrin'?"
