Giant monkey in our office

The owners of my company are big into art. So when I came into the office today I was greeted by this thing. We've named him George.

Good way to spend money.



How tall is that thing, Jon?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

You might want to look for a new job.

If they paid money for that it don't look good for the company future.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

George needs a "banana".

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
