Monkeyness in the Midweek Busy-ness

Midweek Monkey Business is Youtube-heavy this week so firstly New[1] Music. Stan and Vas are going to Greece, and they probably like electro-pop[2], so here are a few videos of Marsheaux, two good-looking Greek girls with synthesisers. A cover of the Lightning Seeds Pure; a cover of the the synth classic Popcorn and one of their own, Hanging On.

Old Music: this Rubik's Cube inspired video for Level 42's Running in the Family.

Onto something from the same people who made Overdrift (dinosaurs plus drift-racing) which I referenced a few days ago; cyberpunk spoof BURN/N.E.N.E.R.

A couple of cartoons: a classic Wondermark on Terrorists; XKCD on Facebook. In each case, bonus punchlines by hovering the mouse over the image.

A site that I come back to every now and then, even though it seems to be dormant or dead; Hats of Meat.

And a joke.

A woman got on a bus holding a baby. The bus driver said, "That's the ugliest baby I've ever seen!"

In a huff, the woman slammed her fare into the fare box and took an aisle seat near the rear of the bus. The man seated next to her sensed that she was agitated and asked her what was wrong. "The bus driver insulted me," she fumed.

The man sympathized with her and said, "Why, he's a public servant and shouldn't say things to insult passengers."

"You're right," she said. "I think I'll go back up there and give him a piece of my mind."

"That's a good idea," the man said. "Here, let me hold your monkey."
