Super Monkey Ball Deluxe for the Playstation 2
Herschel has a new game for his Playstation 2. It’s called Super Monkey Ball Deluxe.

Ever keen to torture chimps on TV, now he’s bought a virtual compendium of popular ball-games…with monkeys trapped inside all of the balls.

Look at meeee!!!
We pushed the poor things down ramps and into the sea, we played snooker by knocking them across the table – we even threw them, still incarcerated in their spherical cages, down bowling lanes to knock over skittles.

And it was a lot more fun than throwing ordinary balls into the sea, across snooker tables and down bowling lanes I can tell you. We got to blow them up and drown them too.


I tell you - even the monkeys were enjoying it.

They cheered, they danced, they even implored us to hurry up and start.

Yes – the monkeys could even talk.

Reminded me of a Christian children’s TV show that I saw a few months back about creationism. There was a whole song and dance number performed by these monkeys, singing and dancing about how Jesus was king of the jungle. And they did funny monkeying about antics like reading magazines, looking through telescopes, and Jimi Hendrixing their guitars. Their lead singer didn’t even have his monkey mask on – happy to be a monkey from the neck down, but with a human head on top. For a song about creationism...they were kinda giving off the wrong signals there, don’t you think?

Anyway I digress.

I had so much fun playing this innocent little game. And the cool laid-back music made me feel like I was back on holiday in Crete again.

So - this Playstation 2 game with all these monkeys inside balls.

How long do you reckon before this happens in real life?

I think it's the natural progression from all those chimps they sent into orbit in the 50s and 60s.

That's an interesting observation Herschel. If the moon-landing footage is genuine, then how come they didn't send any chimps out ahead of them? Unless of course they did, and that's why they wore such reflective helmets obscuring their faces.

It would explain how they could jump so high as well.

And why they were moving so slowly. (drugged)

And just why NASA paid that mysterious undisclosed sum to Johnny Morris just beforehand. (training Armstrong etc. in the art of improvisational animal dubbing)

"Oooh, look, this is one small step for man, but a giant leap for mankind. Oh. I think I'll take a look over here now. Can I come with you? No! He's in a bad mood today."

But best of all, this would explain their famously taking-off again and leaving the camera-operator behind.
