I like monkeys

I keep falling off my chair whenever I read this story

I took my 200 monkeys home. I have a big car. I let one drive. His name was Sigmund. He was retarded. In fact, none of them were really bright. They kept punching themselves in their genitals. I laughed. Then they punched my genitals. I stopped laughing.

First Post!

I finally got around to setting up my own blog. I decided to go with blosxom. It’s simple, but has all the features I require (of which static rendering is the most important).

Blosxom (pronounced “Blossom”) is a lightweight yet feature-packed weblog application designed from the ground up with simplicity, usability, and interoperability in mind.
