    Trained Soviet Monkeys?

    Current client has me scanning slides, thousands of the damned things. It's all I've been doing for the last 3 days. I can't take it anymore. Surely, given the state of their space program I can find a monkey to run this machine. I mean the Soviets had monkeys flying space probes, I know one could operate this scanner. I won't chase him with a vacuum cleaner, and he could open a window without fear of hypoxia.
    EBay and Craig's List have none listed.

    How much would you pay your monkey? I might do it, if the price is right...

    And I don't want to be paid in bananas!

    did you see that simpsons where homer gets the "helper monkey" to steal him donuts but then the helper monkey goes beserkus and climbs to a telepone wire and eats all the donuts and homer only gets the crumbs that fall?

    yea, i think that what will happen with you and your monkey. but i don't know how the above story will fit inot your slides.

    Monkey can fling poo also. Maybe you should fling some poo at your clients.

    Sounds like a "career move" to me.

    Yeah, I was thinking that myself.

    And I give up for the night. Yerkes Primate Center is down the way a bit. I'm going to see if they have a spring cleaning sale.

    Of course, if you really want trained Soviet monkeys, they are all going to 15+ years old. Younger trained Russian monkeys we got . . . .
