The Monkeys You Ordered


Here’s something I found via Boing Boing (they have a knack of digging up the good stuff). Much like the excellent ‘Garfield Minus Garfield’ cartoon strips I mentioned in a previous post, ‘The Monkeys You Ordered‘ is a blog that takes an existing cartoon strip and makes one simple but highly effective adjustment.

Here the trick is taking cartoons from the New Yorker and changing the caption to something that literally reflects the scene.

Sorry this piano doesn’t sound very good — it’s filled with water and dead fish.

It works brilliantly and in an odd way reminds me of the excellent ‘Far Side’ cartoons by Gary Larson. Extra points too for a monkey themed blog title.
