Monday Monkeying

Lives for the weekend

You’re a monkey. You have darts.
There are balloons. Any questions?

For all you poor souls whose jerk of a boss is making you work during the least productive week of the year, this is our last Monday Demotivator of 2008. Jeez. Just call in sick, will ya? Here’s some stuff to at least help make you late. A perfect brainless warmup is Bloons. You’re a monkey, you have darts, there are balloons. Should be manageable even before you finish the first cup of coffee. After you realize that you’re not even very good at being a dart-toting monkey, check out Superfollow. It acts sort of like a game, but then isn’t one. While your coffee kicks in, ponder what kind of job that guy must have that enables him to sit around all day designing Flash-powered gizmos that serve no conceivable purpose. Now that you’re finally awake, try your hand at Fancypants, fancypants. My pants must not be fancy enough. I killed a few spiders and became overwhelmed with a sort of nebulous sense of futility. Someone please let me know what happens after all the spider killing. And lastly, if you’re still hell-bent on this “going to work on Monday” thing, here’s a list of words you can’t use at the office next week when the rest of the staff is back, but you might be able to get away with this week. It’s amazing the words they come up with for things like “large European beetle with larvae that destroy trees and other plants”.

    Pleeze, pleeeeze stop posting these games. It’s four o’clock in the morning, dammit, listen to me good! (Actually, it’s 12:41 am). I can’t stop playing Fancypants. Oh, the humanity!

    Did you say Oh, the huge manatee? Why do I take this sadistic pleasure in posting games and lying about playing them?
