punkiest monkey that ever popped
mat_j Posted: Fri Aug 15 08:05:14 2008 Post | Quote in Reply  
  The Olypmics being based in China has lead to the BBC making commercials based on animated shorts of the amazing TV show Monkey (AKA Monkey Magic) to advertise the event.

as a result i went on a wiki safari to reacquaint myself with the show and discovered to my shock it was never shown on American TV.

I'm sure I've seen this show referenced in popular culture and am surprised the only frame of reference i could have had for this show were my formative teen years (Admittedly spent more or less living with a Chinese family) watching the shown on rerun on obscure satellite channels.

So my question is: American (and indeed world wide GTers) does anybody know what the sweet caramel feck i'm talking about?

  I have no clue what you're speaking of, but then again I'm often confused by your posts. I usually just shrug my shoulders and write it off as being a Welsh thing.

really?? téléfrançais fantastique! the rest of the world never knows canadian television.
i saw a couple clips recently and i think my parents must've been feeding me drugs for me to love it so much. ananas!?

also, off topic. do you ever go to gentse feesten? you live east of gent i guess? is it as good as i have heard or is it just an evil ploy to get me to travel across the ocean? i know i already missed it this year but i may be visiting next july.

  Two relevant comments! Not bad!

Still glad the coolest Martial artsesque adventure story is still exclusive.

I've got my whole team in work create clouds by blowing on their fingers. I wonder what this Addihif entity will make of that!

I don't think so. Say it out loud.."Hifaddi".
Sounds suspiciously middle eastern to me.
How's IfihadanAddi?
Like "If I had a million dollars..."

Now you've done it old friend.

You have exposed your aversion to all things that sound middle eastern.

If I were you, I'd get someoneto start tasting your food for you and also to start your car for you from now on.
