Monkees v Rabbits .....

Shawn Mary has very fast fingers. Very fast fingers indeed. How do I know this? I know this because not only was she quick enough to bagsy one of my monkees last time my shop was open, but she has also bagged not one, but TWO Little Cotton Rabbits. And to get one of those little cuties you have to be really fast on the keyboard!


So, HP32 arrived at Shawn Mary's house, hoping to be welcomed into his new home with open arms ..... but what did he get on his arrival?





..... only beaten up by Dolly and Joey!! Who knew that Little Cotton Rabbits were capable of such a thing??





....... Doh! I'm just playing with you! As Shawn Mary's picture actually shows, they were just welcoming their new monkee mate ......








Unlike this guy (Bubba), who set about HP32 and kidnapped him!








What? You don't believe me?





..... told you .....





Pretty soon though, Bubba saw the error of his ways and they were all ......




(complete with monkee / rabbit snacks)





In fact ..... some may say they got a little too well acquainted .......





..... but I couldn't possibly comment on that ...... apart from to note that judging by the smile on 32's face, he's very comfortable .....




Thanks, Shawn Mary, for the brilliant pictures, and for these next ones, which show that HP32 is going to be FAR better travelled than his creator ......





...... hmm, squished between Shawn Mary and Louis V? What red blooded primate wouldn't enjoy that ride?!





Business Class ...... this monkee sure knows how to get around!






Unfortunately, while in the First Class Lounge something strange started happening to HP32. Maybe it was the excitement of living life in the fast lane that went to his head. Maybe it was one too many cocktails. Maybe it was magic beans. Whatever it was, this monkee started growing.










And growing ......










And growing ......










And pretty soon he had taken on King-Kong-esque proportions and wouldn't fit in the plane.












They told him he'd have to find his own way to Singapore .......







..... so he did ......





Again with the Doh!! I just can't help myself! Ok, so really he was just playing around in the lounge still ......



..... but you must admit that the last picture, while possibly the result of a psychologically disturbed mind obviously a work of pure genius, makes for a more nail biting finale.




Once again, many thanks, Shawn Mary, and if you should send me any more pictures, I promise not to mess around with them ..... too much .....



A note for Sal - I've been trying to leave a comment on your blog, but as I don't have a the right account it won't let me ..... anyway, my comment is ..... fabulous wallpaper, dahling!

Would you believe that HP32 is now requesting an agent and a publicist!

MM, we have created a monster....and I see no end in sight.

Monkee World Domination (MWD) is in full swing!

Next stop....America!

Wow what a well travelled monkee, mine are grateful if they make it off the sofa!!

I'm not too sure about the bedtime shennanigans though.

Good to be able to catch up with the gang again and see that you are still loopy!

brilliant pictures - Shawn Mary obviously shares a slightly nutty sense of humour! though fancy suggesting the little cotton rabbits could be anything other than sweet and gentle and kindness personified! Love the mega monkey shot - I shall be giggling in the playground shortly and will have people wondering what I'm thinking - if only they knew!

Denise said...

Another smile on my face, too funny, too cute, and I love the last pic - I really did think he'd grown so big!

teehee...magic beans! :) magic beans make me laugh, and so does the picture of the gigantic monkee.

Denise said...

I always visit here for a good giggle - you haven't let me down.
Have you been to Mason Dixon Knitting (http://www.masondixonknitting.com/) recently - there's a pretty stunning bit of monkey business going on over there ....
