Mom’s Newest Sock Monkey

05 Dec



Holy mergatroid!  Nana bought mommy the biggest sock monkey *I* have ever seen.  It’s bigger than me.  Heck, I think that sock monkey could ride this little oinker’s back.  Uh-oh.  Maybe I shouldn’t have said that.  The next thing you know, mommy would be buying me a saddle to ride.  Scratch all of that.

So nana bought the sock monkey to ride shotgun in mom’s Smart car.  He is in the passenger seat of her car.  Shame on him for not buckling his seatbelt – snorts.

And if it’s bad enough, she named him.  You won’t believe this – Monkey Man.  Rolls piggy eyes.  Really mom?  Monkey Man?



Mommy even introduced Monkey Man to our neighbor Big Daddy.  Can you see the size of Monkey Man – he’s huge!?  I wonder what they fed him in the store?  

But Monkey Man had a long talk with Big Daddy about being a good boy and not getting into trouble with the other sock monkeys in the back of mom’s Smart car.  You know that talk about setting an example.  It should be interesting.

I don’t know about you, but that sock monkey just looks like Trouble with a capital T.  I have a funny feeling that ya’ll will be hearing about him soon.  I just have a butterfly in my pot belly.   You think the same?

I just hope Monkey Man doesn’t turn into Chucky – squeal!

      aaww – thank you very much my sweet Auntie Sharon. Even I have kind of taken a liking to the Monkey Man. I couldn’t believe when Nana bought it – WOW – that thing is huge. Just between you and me – come closer and don’t tell mom okay – dad did put Monkey Man on top of Hemi to ride – snorts. It was hilarious. I’ve never seen that purr thing move so fast. It was like Monkey Man was in a bronco – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    I have a keychain that it looks like that, older than dirt and probably dirtier than dirt too.

      Snorts – Mom’s a wussy when it comes to sock monkey’s. She loves them. I personally think they are trying to take over the house. XOXO – Bacon

      I’m with you Sammy. See previous comments where dad put Monkey Man on the back of Hemi. Snorts. I so wish I had my video camera going at that time. XOXO – Bacon

      You know you do have a good point there my dear friend. Thank you so much for making me aware of that – he is definitely NOT a piglet. That is good for me. So, if that’s all mom wants to bring into the Hotel Thompson, I’m so good with Monkey Man – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
      Yeah, you are right. Taking another look at that picture… hhhmm – that is a tail between his legs 🙂 snorts. I need to find him a diaper or something. Jeez – snorts

    Wow, never seen such a big sock monkey. You’re a little bigger than I am Bacon but did he scare you, even a little bit? You gotta get rid of him, can’t let Monkey Man take over YOUR hotel Bacon!

    • PigLove

      12/05/2013 at 9:23 am

      Well, Cocco – you know me and our kind too well my little friend. When Mom and Nana first brought him into the house, I did squeal like a rooster/bark and ran to my room. Just for the shortest time. I do admit that. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts – I thought so too. Compared to mom’s other sock monkeys in the back of the Smart Car, this one is Sasquatch! Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Sock monkeys, well, any kind of monkeys creep me out! If I woke up in the night and saw one, I’d be on the attack.

      Snorts. That’s what I’m for. I am a protect pig – snorts. I couldn’t even say that with a straight face – PLOL (Pig laughing out loud). Mommy feels that way about clowns – shivers. Now *those* are scary – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Sock monkeys are super great! Sometimes my granny buys plush-guys and toy-thingies for my mom too (she is still a child I think). I like the name Monkey Man! Who can take tomorrow.
    Dip it in a dream.Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream.
    The monkey man.Oh the monkey man can. :o) btw: I’m off for a moment, we have “nosefiltered ” Schweppes on the keyboard (Doggy’s comment)

    That is one big sock monkey! There’s a tiny one hanging on our Christmas tree. And also, I peeked when Mom was wrapping Christmas gifts, and I saw the “LOL Rollover Sock Monkey” from Crackerbarrel. I think I’m getting it for Christmas!!

    Love and licks,

      oh squeal!! Really Cupcake? That one is so awesome. Mommy told me about that when her and daddy went to the Cracker Barrell a couple of weeks back. It would be so much fun to play with!! XOXO – Bacon

    That is a super-sized sock monkey. I see adventures of Monkey Man as he rides shotgun. I know the smart car has a name, right? I have forgotten it.

    • PigLove

      12/06/2013 at 9:53 am

      Snorts. Mom’s Smart car is named Albert. So Monkey Man rides shotgun in Albert. What a team they are. Albert can be a little bully when he wants in traffic. Shame on him. Daddy fusses at him all of the time – snorts. I can just imagine Monkey Man joining in and both of them getting into trouble. XOXO – Bacon
