A post here from 7/27/2010 reminded me that I have these fabulous monkeys to add to the jungle.

They look like really expensive old ivory, don’t they? Well, they’re heavy plastic made to fool the tourist trade.

My favorite thing about these fakes is that the very rare, “Do No Evil” monkey is included in the set:

They really are great fakes, that fool a lot of people. They’re a little over 3″ tall with no markings what-so-ever.

    So rare to see Do No Evil included. Usually it’s just the big three: https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=50809. Though we have had another sighting of Four Wise Monkeys here at AWMOK: https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2009/10/20/four-wise-monkeys/ I have no idea how three became the standard if, in fact, four exist. Though as a songwriter I must say that three rolls off the tongue far smoother than adding the fourth Do one.

    I, of course, LOVE that they’re made of plastic. Usually I hate plastic made to look like wood but it works exceptionally well with the monkeys.

    (The AWMOK Jungle Animal Petting Zoo is a scenic attraction whose cages are currently being filled to coincide with the release of the upcoming Pomplamoose with Allee Willis “Jungle Animal” VideoSong and online music game and contest. Jungle tamer, AWMOK creator, curator and charming hostess, Allee Willis, me, will be steadily leading jungle animals to their cages over the next 1-2 months or so as you bring them here until the song is released. If ever there ever was a category that was primed to be kitschified it’s that of “Jungle Animal” as all the stripes, spots and fur have been inspiration for designers since the beginning of time. I thank you all in advance for placing your jungle pets in such an illustrious cage as The Allee Willis Museum of Kitsch. Keep them coming!)
