No, Alphamonkey is not trying to change his identity. If you have several thousand dollars sitting around and either a penchant for self-aggrandizement or a sense of humour that you think simply must make it into the animal taxonomy books, you can name your very own new species of monkeyAwwww… aren’t they cute?
The Wildlife Conservation Society has found a new species of monkey in Bolivia’s Madidi National Park and are relinquishing naming rights to the highest bidder. So what would you name it? I can’t decide between the:
Shockda Monkey… “What kind of monkey did I just buy?” “Don’t you know you got a Shockda Monkey! (a hey-hey)”
Muhmuhmuh Monkey… (so everyone will sound like they have a stuh-stuh-stuh-stutter)
Soontobeextinct Monkey… which will cause awkward silences when talked about after it actually has been rendered extinct
Insano-venomous Man-eating Monkey… perhaps we can give the poachers pause and prevent said extinction?
Levitating Talking Monkey… give the zoo field trip kids a healthy dose of anticipointment.
Any others? Hell, maybe we could have a vote here at Transbuddha, then pool our money together! Yeah!
