Bad monkey.

Edit, Thursday, February 7, 2008:
My attempt to create "Smoking Gun"-type mug shots seems to have failed. I really wanted him to be holding up a booking card, but I don't have photoshop and Steve wasn't interested in helping me with this at 10 p.m. last night.
Several friends have eagerly told me that this is not a "bad monkey" but actually quite a nice monkey. No, no. Would you want to meet this monkey in a dark alley? I didn't think so. You wouldn't trust this monkey with your social security number. I know I wouldn't.
Should've titled this: "Bad joke."


  1. Cute!! I like his groucho unibrow. and his cocked ears. excellent monkey, my friend.

  2. oooohhhh. mug shot. i feel like a li'l dummy. maybe "criminal monkey?" hmm.

    in any case, don't let him near the socktopus. he might be a bad influence.

  3. He looks like a cartoon character from my favorite all time comic, "
    "Hamster Man".

  4. He looks like Chris Funk from The Decemberists.

    For comparison:

  5. Okay, Harpal wins the comparison test. That's frickin' awesome.

  6. Haha, I have been curious about that wonky sock monkey mug shot on your blog for a while, I love him. I'm a bit of a sock monkey fan and maker myself. I want to try some more rugged kind of socks like yours now :-)

  7. Too funny to find a comment on this ancient post! Oh, hi Jane! Glad you like it. I'm about due to make another of these - this sketchy dude got gifted years ago.
