Noah’s Monkey

19 Dec


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.

Chip In!

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.

Here’s a bonus picture of Noah’s uncle. Who wouldn’t want to help a child forced to live with this?

    Dad bought a Flingshot Monkey for Christmas! Couldn’t convince him to send it to Noah, though. We flung that sucker all over the house yesterday, thinking of you little buddy.

    OK, I think any contributions to the Noah’s Monkey fund should go to me and I’m pretty sure I can come up with a monkey to send to the poor little guy.

    By the way, poor Noah also lost his great little farm set this week when his Grandma Mary made Aunt Nancy return it. I guess that’s two strikes against Nancy!

    You cheap ass! You break a poor little boy’s heart and can’t even come up with 10 dollars!

    Actually, Sis, 8 bucks will do.

    Hey, I just read this and couldn’t stop laughing! You guys are awesome! Noah’s mom said that we can live without the monkey, but I think I will buy one asap just to give us a little excitement in our rather boring lives:)

    P.S. Noah was really upset when he saw the farm set sitting in the back of my car waiting for Paul to pick up to bring to S.D. He couldn’t understand why Grandma would not give it to him. Can you believe the nerve?
