Fear the Monkey... Wear the Monkey...

You may not be aware of this, but everyone's favorite blog commenter Stray Thoughts, is a very talented graphic designer.

As well as being one of this year's recruits for Team Angry Monkey, he is the originator of its logo, and in fact the logo is what spawned the team.

Through the wonders of Cafe Press, he has launched an official team store. No matter how the members of Team Angry Monkey may feel about this, the store is open to anyone who may want to purchase some team apparel. This includes you, Jamoker, even though you are a roadie.

Check out the store here.

ST has also been working on some updates to the insignia that Team Angry Monkey will be sporting this year. The Flaming Hot Rod Bunnies will soon be synonymous with the Angry Monkey!

*Are the fans drinking beer along the sidelines the Flaming Hot Rod Bunnies?

(Ange -- you all can crash at my house!0

I do own a nice GT Karakorum, btw. It is now used almost exclusively to pull the trailer for the kiddies when we ride up to the soccer fields.

Yippeeeee! My official Angry Monkey coffee mug arrived while I was in Washington. I must say two things: 1) this is a high quality, high volume mug and 2) if anyone else uses it I will punish them severely.

(I almost bought the Angry Monkey Onesie for G Baby Z, but honestly I have reservations. Don't wanna start nothin', ya know?

Zilla! Thanks for your support! You were the very first person to purchase some Angry Monkey Gear...I think that deserves something special...although I'm not sure exactly what yet...

Angeline Rose Larimer said...

What does the second person get?

Can I please hold the banner?
Seriously. It's as close as my ass ever comes to actually participating in biking events.
Just ask Jamoker. (Is he too late to ride?) I used to paint his pit board and cheerlead from the sidelines during Little 500.
And by cheerlead, I mean I was hung over and would make a cringe face whenever twenty bikes piled on top of each other mid-race.
"Woo Hoo!! He's ALIVE!"
I'm real good at that cheer. And drinking a lot in sympathy for his injuries.
Where was I?
Zilla and I get to hold the banner, right?

Jennifer said...

Of course we get to hold the banner, Ange! And then we get to kiss a bunch of hot, sweaty, angry monkeys! And their wives and girlfriends!

alpharat said...

Hey! The wives and girlfirends are angry monkeys too! We are one and the same!

Go Go Angry Monkey!

To clarify, there is no Zoo in the TC area, right? It is possible Zilla could be talking about actual angry monkeys. If such is the case, I have already been peed and pointed at this year, remember?
Which means,like Paprika, I am off the market for kissing sweaty bunches of monkeys.

*Because when a baboon pisses at you, you're his forever. I forgot to explain that part.
Feel free to use that one in any wedding toasts while over in Scotland, btw.

You feminist, you!

To clarify, we do have a zoo in TC. It is a sad little zoo with tiny little cages containing rescued native animals that can never return to the wild. Although it's been under discussion for months and months, I do not know the fate of the zoo. Some want it shut down; others want it improved; still others want it relocated. I do not know where I stand on the issue, aside from wanting the most humane choice made on behalf of the animals.

Obviously, monkeys -- angry or happy or altogether dispassionate -- are not native to northern Michigan. We rely heavily on visiting monkeys up here.

Have a great time in Scotland!

It's a little known fact that beer is beteer at hydration than water or Gator Ade. I either read that somewhere or just now made it up. I can't remember, but either way, I'll have one.
