Thumbs up

Chuck,

Nice choice for your trunk monkey. I went with the Cotton Top Tamarin. The card on mine said that they are usually born in twins so I guess I'll have to get another. Just imagine how well my SVX will handle with two trunk monkies

I really think that the trunk monkey story should be included in the FAQ section.

You just don't get it do you? You are still looking for a product? That's OK, you would have had to be in on the original thread to know... I think it was started by Sean. Somebody post the link to that thread, if it is still around...

The trunkmonkey post was one of the funiest things I've ever read...I still laugh outloud when I read the printout.

Go to http://www.trunkmonkey.com/ and click on FAQ. That will give you everything you need to know. And more. So, to answer your question, it's a joke. And yes, there is a product. =) The guys at the North South Smackdown got to see the prototype plush Trunkmonkeys!

Trunkmonkey is here! There is no cone...

Cool

Don't worry - we were all unknowing once! I consider trunk monkey as one of the ..umm.. legacies of i-club (along with brucelee's "Dumb question" thread ), a sign of your affiliation with i-club, and a sign of solidarity between the Subaru owners.


..phew.. big words..

hey subesti,
thank you for starting this thread ...
I ALWAYS felt left out / dumb when someone was mentioning a trunk monkey in a msg (because I didn't know what the hey they were talking about !-) ...
Well, now I know ! (reading the FAQ made me laugh too !)

so thank you again for asking ;-)
