The Monkeys You Ordered

Is it because I have so many goats?

It's pretty typical that anything on the internet I fall in love with will be ruined by lawyers (see Oh, wait, you can't. Lawyers shut it down).

I was distressed to hear the news that the newish Tumblr, The Monkeys You Ordered has been served with a cease and desist notice by Condé Nast. Not that I'm surprised or anything. They take New Yorker Cartoons and add their own, completely literal captions. For some reason I find them hilarious, and like with The Far Side, they're cumulatively funny, as: the more you read, the funnier they get. So, take a look before they vanish forever!
