I missed Monkey Day.
Yesterday was International Monkey Day, the one day each year that we celebrate all things simian.
But I got distracted by work and travel and missed all the monkey business.
No monkey t-shirts. No monkey jokes. No monkey e-cards (always funny, always appropriate).
Funny thing — people always accuse Hallmark Cards of ‘creating’ holidays. Although there’s no proof of it, I wouldn’t be surprised if they are behind Monkey Day. Goodness knows the monkey has been good to them. Put a monkey on a humor card, and it always sells.
‘Cause monkeys are funny. I mean, just look at that face. Dude deserves his own day.
(Hope it was happy.)
