    OK, with apologies to monkeybat and inkmonkey,
    what's up with all of the "monkey" user names?
    The Mac names I get, but the "monkeys"???

    There are about 75 different usernames that have "monkey" in them.
    By contrast, there are only about 20 or so with "dawg" associated with them.

    We have plain monkey and latestmonkey

    Along with closely named monkeys:
    bluemonkey and Blue Monkey (as well as a purplemonkey)

    spacemonkey and space-monkey as well as 3space monkey, spacemonkey9 and funkspacemonkey

    monkeyboy, monkeyboyone, iMacMonkeyboy and monkeyboyforeve

    groovemonkey and gr00VeMonkey

    We have food monkeys:
    buttermonkey
    coffeemonkey
    monkeygum
    monkeypie
    monkeypoo seems to fit :rolleyes:
    sugarmonkey
    thaimonkey ;)

    We have geek monkeys:
    codemonkey
    compiledmonkey
    hexmonkey
    cyborg monkey

    We have even have music monkeys:
    discmonkey
    djcrazymonkey
    tunemonkey

    And assorted miscellaneous monkeys:
    firemonkey
    leisuremonkey
    MrHappyMonkey
    MrLoveMonkey

    Along with a host of others!

    Just curious... while everything is slow :)

    Woof, Woof - Dawg

    Didn't Doctor Q do something like this a few months ago?

    Edit: Yes.

    Not to discourage this thread - just some other interesting tidbits. By the way, there is apparently a Phineas O. Monkeypants user that got left off your list... ;)

    I think the lastest research shows that they can distinguish between "none" and "some", but counting seems beyond their capabilities. ;)

    Touche, I only searched for "dawg"
    But I seem to see a lot more monkey's posting than dogs
    Or is it just my imagination?

    There's also quite a few "Eye"s though that number drops off once you get rid of "Meyers"s etc.

    I'm not sure what it is, though... I think it's a guy pretending to cross-country ski. ;)

    Great Shagging Saddle Back Tamarins! Now THAT made me burst out laughing.

    Not sure what the great monkey fascination is. Maybe it's because they look like little people. But I guess by that logic everyone should have a midget fascination too. I know few people who do and in my case I consider it more of a fetish.
