Make my monkey the funk monkey, I wants to get funked up!

The colorful George Clinton of Parlaiment - Funkadelic fame is the inspiration for my fun-kay mon-key! While not exact portraiture, I think it captures some funkentelechy. Don't you Star Child?

About Geroge: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Clinton_(funk_musician)

Here's my funk monkey, in a Converse "All Star" shirt like the one I saw George wear for the P.Funk All Stars tour

He's got a star on his booty!

Funk not only moves, it can re-move, dig? The desired effect is what you get when you improve your interplanetary funksmanship...

OMG! I love it!  I think today will have to be a funkadellic day! There's nothing better to break you out of a funk than some funk!

George Clinton lives in a little tiny town outside of Tallahassee Florida. I have seen him in the Tallahassee airport which is so small it only has two of those baggage claim conveyor belt things for the entire airport. Let me tell you, he stood out in the little ol Tallahassee airport! But like a true local, everyone left him alone. He was just a guy getting his stuff at the airport.

I apologize for double posting but I HAD to say that this sock monkey has totally made my day! I have been listening to George Clinton/Parliament all day!  You can't help but be in a good mood while listening to this!

"...chocolate covered freakin happiness!"

So here I am in my cube reviewing data, drafting official government communiques, and jammin to P-Funk!
