A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

It's Monkey Week

... here at the ol' Metroblog.

Well a monkeyish couple of days, anyhow. The universe is just monkey themed--or at least the bit of it that evolved into the apparently-dominant species of this planet.

I say this because humanity has yet to accept the power of its almighty overlords, the telepathic sea chickens ... sorry ... woolgathering there ... ah yes--because when I got to work this morning, this was the opening screen of the company net:

I was trying to think of a decent way we could show our appreciation for the mercy of the telepathic sea chickens ... sorry, mind wandering ... Oh, right. I was trying to come up with something better than "I cn haz bananananana?"

Thoughts, anyone? I will award a coveted Metro No-Prize for the best caption.

Metro, I fear you have compromised the authority of the invisible telepathic sea chickens. They WILL be revenged!

The ape is simply boasting that "I DID has cheezburger"

Look at me, I'm the Metro

Don't you dare disbelieve in Evolution as the Survival of the Fittest

Hey Metro-Man

Just what exactly is it that you and your monkey are hiding anyhow?

Good try, but the lack of 360-degree mirrors means the comparison doesn't hold.

Sorry? What telepathic invisible sea chickens?

I like the caption. I think you get the Metro No-Prize.

@G. Eagle:
Nice to have you back--but this sounds a little bitter for you. I hope and trust that all is well in Eagleland.

Truly, survival of the fittest is what apes are all about, whether they are the variety that spend their time hunting grubs and insects across the verdant veldt, or the type that spend their time worrying about mortgages.

No, no ... everybody's got something to hide EXCEPT for me and my monkey.

Bonjour M Metro

You seemingly do not see the attempted Joke

.... on re-reading my Comment, I do not see the Joke

The internet is unforgetting - it's hard on an Eagle to be reminded in the evening of his ridiculous comments posted on the morning

Yours very apologetically

@g EaGLE:

No worries. Just wondering whether the dioxins in the water had thinned your shell a little :-)

Ah !! but I am worried - I want the much-desired Metro no-prize

@ G EaGlE:


Although the coveted Metro No-Prize has been awarded to Aerchie, please consider yourself the recipient of the Great Panjandrum's Special Award for Persistance :-)

Heil Metro

Dies est Outrageous = ScHocking
Das geDammen und das geBlasten

I thought you were an equal=opportunity No-Prize Awarder

There is a clear case of discrimination in favour of humour (err ... humor of favor) and wit in your awarding the First No-Prize to the funny AerChie

and the 2nd No-Prize to the Meritorious close Runner=Up, the Witty & sagacious IH

with the 3rd No-Prize going to that earnest Seeker after EnLightenment and Truth, that Walrus

Doesn't Canada have LAWS to give No-Prize Rights to Humor-Deficit sufferers

AND what indeed is the Monkey hiding und why does E = MCc squared

Alles Gute


At 6:01 a.m., Blogger Metro said...

E = Mcc^2?

Energy equals 1000 cc's squared?

Not on my motorcycle. Haven't you seen pictures of the 21st Century Sex Machine?

Merhaba, Effendi [G'day Metro-Dude]

What a lovely Velocipator !!

Infinitely preferable to a disgruntled Male Camel ...

but how close to light-speed does theis Velocipator get ?

For this, what role does a Pick=Up Truck play, trying to catch up with a RainCoaster dwindling into the distant horizons on her Harley-Davidson on her way to the Seaside

Now that you have a Velocipator, I suppose the next move is for you to get a Spitfire for our friend AerChie's next Redbull race

iyi yolculuklar [have a good trip]

gule gule [keep smiling]

@ G EaGLE:

I am not sure the term Velocipator (or perhaps you intended "Velociraptor"?) can be applied. The imputation of velocity to this machine is a base canard, and therefore it should be called an Antidaepator.

As I have lately discovered, it travels just fast enough to catch a cold.

The reports of Raincoasters on Harleys is erroneous. As is well known, Harleys cannot be operated by tentacles.

Gute Nacht, Herr Metro

Hier in England, we are celebrating "the divine deliverance from the Hellish Gun-Powder Plot"*

Es macht man denken, nee
Das ist es doch

It is a Truth universally acknowledged

- Love is Blind

but, by the Lion's mane:

There is something Magical about your Velocipator [SchPeed Maschine], even when in stationary orbit in relation to the rear-end of a Pick-up Truck

The race is not aways to th Strong
Nor the Battle to the Strong

Alles Gute


* Extracted from the Will of th late & now forgotten Mr Bloodworth leaving a £6 annual rentcharge in the 17th Century to afford :

13 shillings 4 pence for ye Local Friendly neighbourhood Vicar to preach a sermon on the said deliverance + 2 shillings to be divided between the 2 churchwardens for their pains + the balance to be distributed next Sunday in Penny Loves for the Poor

At 10:24 a.m., Blogger Metro said...

Just revisiting this one--I'd seen the quote before, and recently. And I'd always thought that "penny loves" was a 17th Century spelling for "loaves".

Or maybe it's correctly spelt and the late Mr. Bloodworth had a wry sense of humour.
