Manic Monkey?

Mac (left) and his new friend (right)

Last Christmas, my sister gave me Mac the Monkey. This Christmas she gave me the makings of a sock monkey and I made a friend for Mac. He doesn't have a name yet, so any suggestions are welcome. There may even be a prize for the best one!

You might like to caption the picture, too!

Edited to Add: picture of new monkey in his new jacket. I thought he looked a bit plain.




Final ETA:The competition is now closed. Results will be published shortly. Shortlyish anyway.

Oh, Mac's friend is a cutie! So stylish!

How about Jazz, to reflect the jazzy patterns s/he has?

jjdebenedictis said...

Oh, wait, I totally got them backward. Well...Jazz is still a great name! And the grey one is sleek and cute too, so why not name her/him Jazz?

What's a sock monkey? Is he made of socks?

I need more information!

jj, Jazz is a great name! For either of them. I thought as the new on is grey and has dead eyes and a fierce grin he might be Zombie Monkey...

Lexi, Yes they are made out of a pair of socks. There is a basic pattern here. I'm not really into sock monkeys but as my sister gave them to me I had to do something with them!

Mac and his bestest pal, The Professor. :-)

The jacket is sweet. How about Sockit? A play on sock and knit.

fairyhedgehog said...

Kitty, I like that take on him; I'd never have thought of it myself. Oh, and Happy New Year!

Debbie, that's another good one! And thank you about the jacket - that's probably the best bit of him!

For the sake of balance, PC? Or maybe for the Harry Potter fans, Mundungus Monkey?

fairyhedgehog said...

Simon, well PC would balance him up nicely but I'm not sure I want to be reminded of Windows all the time! Mundungus has possibilities... but I'm not a true Potter fan!

Kate said...

If Mac is Scottish, maybe his friend is Irish. Seamus O'Reilly?

fairyhedgehog said...

Kate, I like your thinking! As long as we don't confuse him with our SatNav which is also called Seamus.
