Take a break from customizing your Celebrity Glass Eye Theater dolls -- because that is totally what you were doing, right? I have a bet with Jiggy that no one will take up my challenge. However, he has more faith in humanity than I do (ironic considering the depths of depravity he personifies). But me, yeah, I don't think anyone is brave or creative enough to take on my Halloween Costume Contest challenge. Then again I have perennially low expectations of you people, although I am willing to be surprised.
Anyway, take a break. Join with me in welcoming our contestants to the ring for the Monkey of the Year Smackdown.
Because there can only be one AG monkey left standing at the end of the year.
"But AJ," you whine. "Unfair! Fio is an orangutan, not a monkey."
More fool you. Yes, Fio is SUPPOSED to be a goddamned orangutan. But let's face facts: Lamie's entire collection is nothing more than a better-financed retread of mine. So that precious orangutan of hers? Yeah, it's nothing more than MY Toshi, hopped up on steroids, dipped in carrot juice, with its tail whacked off.
WTF, people. THIS is an orangutan:
THIS sure as hell is not:
And I know for a fact that "Fio" means "cheap rip-off of AJ's monkey" in the Riau dialect of Malay.
One of them must die, and it's not going to be my monkey. Toshi and I have been training for this event all year long. I understand that Fio has gotten a few tips from that reprobate raccoon in a can but whatever, you get what you pay for.
So bring it. Time for the Monkey of the Year Smackdown.
Refereed by my close personal friend the all-seeing Geico Sandwich, with Sugar the Evil Yorkie of Doom in the pocket of Team Fio:
So reach for your bankroll because Jiggy's bookmaker and smart money's on Team Toshi. Fio is going DOWN.
(And a big shout-out to Robot for skinning me up over on Playthings).
