Minding my own business

So I'm sitting here, quietly, at my desk. Suddenly I hear a middle-aged woman bellow, "Thanks for taking the monkey out of my back." All I could think was that Bucky would've bust a gut laughing at that one.

Oooooooh, the possibilities...

So, someone took the monkey OUT OF her back. Did this require surgical removal, ie, the monkey was fused to her back, or was this simply a matter of someone absentmindedly resting her monkey on this poor woman's back, to the point where she was grateful for its removal?

Monkey found attachment to lady's back very awkward and embarassing.

Now Monkey needs shower, shave, and shining.

Maybe her "monkey" had been mistakenly located IN her back, y'know like a birth defect or something... And I thought, "Wow...those extreme makeover folks are so nice to help that poor woman..."

Bucky, I was too afraid to ask. But she did sound happy.

Jess's Monkey, are you okay now?

Eclectic, sounds like something for the AMA's journals. But extreme makeovers would be the first at it.

I think it'd be great if women had their monkey on their back. Think how much fun it would be when a slow dance came on.

Then we could always say, "Holy shit, I loves me some slow dancing!"

The only reason I'm commenting now is because the word verification is so cool. (read dumb)

I didn't realize that anything other than steel rods could fit IN your back. Maybe this woman will be the next feature on the health channel. ;)
Speaking of word verification; does anybody else have a hard time distinguishing between i's and j's?

Well, tshsmom, I didn't really want to look and see how they took the monkey out. I was skirred.

g's and q's are hard, too. Sometimes it depends on the font. When they make it all swirly and really tight together it's hard to tell any of the stupid letters.

This is one is easy to read, no hard letters, and short.

Thank you, Mr B, for the musical reference. We can always count on you for that.

That would be cool to really have a monkey in my back. It would give me something to do when I get bored licking toads and huffing glue.

Gives a whole new meaning to "You scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours."

I have nothing funny to add about the ladies monkey. However, I could not pass up an attempt at the word verificatin and the chance to say hello Squirl.

Hello Squirl.

Now I am deadly curious as to what might be in my back.

Kitty, you always find the most creative ways of curing your boredom.

Nilbo, I hadn't thought of that...

August, that's some tricky word verification there. Especially if the font was wiggly.

Kranki, you mean with all the testing you've had they haven't seen anything in your back???

I guess you'd have to watch out for those low-cut backed dresses--would you have to shave your back? And would this result in a peeing problem? Teehee--try imagining that the full woman's anatomy was placed on her back--and then see her try to pee in a toilet...teehee

I'm sorry--I'm tired!

I have problems when the word verification has v's and w's next to each other....

Good grief!
My ex always used to say "It's a doggy-dog world."
I tried to explain the concept to him...

Effie, holy cow, you've just brought up all kinds of logistical nightmares. In fact, this just might make me have nightmares. I wish spam comments had never started. Does anybody ever really buy anything from those???

Sierrabella, I hate it when people get phrases wrong. They don't seem to worry that they don't make sense.

Or maybe he was being prescient and "knew" about Snoop Dogg.

We don't get french benefits?

LOL, out of her back??? The thought . . . Okay maybe I am sick or something. . . but I am wondering what body orifice this monkey took to arrive there?

jecawvu ~ it must mean something. :)

Bucky, you'll just have to talk to someone else about those french benefits.

Nanina, we probably shouldn't even go there. :-)

Let's see, my word verification is

fwtkpk must be something naughty in there.

At least no one has said anything about it needing spanked...

No need to thank me. Really.
All in a day's work.

MD, perhaps people thought it might be just too painful. But thank you anyway. Always appreciated. ;-)

What the fuck is a kqraagy?

It must be what you say when the pull the monkey out of your back.

Ow, Bucky, that sounds really painful.

This monkey business is makin' me worried...what was she tryin to say? Shakin' the monkey off her back?

Anyways--Happy Friday!!

Effie, I guess we'll never know. Cuz I ain't askin' her! :-)

You have a groovy Friday.

Really you people are just obsessed with monkeys.


Face it, you all are closet lesbians.

Who wants my number?

So, Jess, get any requests for your number yet?

I figured it out.
She had a container of those little plastic "barrel of monkeys" and one of them got lodged in her back while she was doing only God knows what and this gentleman was kind enough to remove it.

This theory is sick but effective.
And, damn it, it works. :oP

MD, sick yet effective. Isn't that just what the doctor ordered?
