A blog I read by Tim Ferriss listed the Flingshot Flying Monkey today as a top ten gift that anyone would love. Slingshot Monkey is “guaranteed to please.” I can confirm the great joy a screaming monkey launched from your finger tips can bring. My little cousin Noah got one of these sometime recently, and brought it with him to South Dakota over the Thanksgiving holiday (sans the super cool mask and cape). “Someone” shot that sucker so many times at Noah’s Dad that it quit making snazzy monkey sounds. Noah blamed it on Aunt Nancy–she’s a primate killer.
Here’s Noah–without his screaming Slingshot Monkey.
I’m calling now on all decent people on Planet Earth to pitch in for a new Flying Monkey for Noah. The goal is $7.95 US (it’s $3.45 on Amazon with 4.50 shipping). Come on, folks–it’s a great cause for a sad little boy.
(Sorry, it’s not tax deductible).
Here’s a bonus picture of Noah’s uncle. Who wouldn’t want to help a child forced to live with this?
