When it comes to winning

A trip through the air

We all should have known

An ex-space Monkey would be there

I thought he was a dolt

But I was just being mean

His reasoning was sound

When he guessed a Blue Screen

Congratulations Monkey on winning the Inaugural GetFilms Competitive Competition for Curious Competitors!

Unfortunately while checking the rocket today I discovered it has a few engineering problems. Some of it's seams came apart sometime during the last few days. I'm sure it can be made air-worthy with some gaffer tape, much like any NASA project. I'll be in touch shortly to discuss the flight plan. In the mean time can I suggest you spend some time using the dryer as a centrifuge to re-acquaint yourself with the G-Forces of space flight.

I'll go more into detail about the actual contents of the box, booooox, box, the box... um, the Blue Screen soon.

Take: 19

P.S. Under no circumstances will I be taking a spin in the dryer. Can't Purple do it?

I knew that that thing was blinking at me.
It blinks as I watch it, sly as can be.
But flying through space? Will her tail stick out?
And one random failure means gremlins about?
I've said it last week, I'll say it once more:
G-force in a dryer's the same as Mach IV.

The more important question is, are you going to try on the gimp outfit for us?

Poop. I still think I won. You just didn't want to admit you like to wear dresses. I'm completely inconsolable.

But I am happy for my Turkey Twat.

You should be proud Monkey. You are a Star!

There's no reason to go into the Dryer. I 'launched' the Rocket yesterday. You seemed to handle it quite well without the training. You were very cute too. I'll post footage sometime over the next couple of days.

Yeah, Monkeys tail did stick out. As did his head.

There were all sorts of Gremlins about. Who would have thought rocket science was so difficult?

Mach IV, really? My dryer must be deffective, It regularly reaches Mach 12. Maybe I should stop using nuclear powered engine.

Diana, You guessed the winner, yes, yes you did!

Hmmm, a prize? What? I mean really, we weren't running a Guess the Winner of the Inaugural GetFilms Competitive Competition for Curious Competitors Competition. I think your prize will have to be the knowledge that you are indeed a 'winner'.

Cowbell dude!

No. Monkey is known for hanging around girl's change rooms. The X-ray vision is just a happy cataylst.

I've also heard that if you tickle his hoo-hah the right way he can see through time. But that's just a rumour.

Oh Ham Twat, don't be like that.

I would have posted a picture of the box opening but unfortunately (for me) the company got the order wrong and I re-boxed it to send it back. Luckily, for me, they don't want the wrong order back so I get to keep what I have now and they'll send the correct order today. I could now bluescreen an elephant, well, me and ten of my mates in dresses anyway.

Ham Twat!

I love my statue. Shiny, shiny!

I cannot stop looking at myself. I'm so blinky.

NASA uses duct tape on the shuttle to attach the solid rocket boosters to the big fuel tank. Is that the same as gaffer tape?

'seams undone' - glad you can incorporate cricketing terms into your flight plans :-)

Prehensile tails doth not a rocket rider gleefully make, and glee to be a me that free seems not so much anaerobic than frapped.
