Coconut Monkey Love

Badmojo’s First Coconut Monkey

Badmojo has started a discussion about a topic close to his heart — the coconut monkey. He’s a second-generation coconut monkey lover, the spark was started by a coconut monkey his father received at the age of five. You’ve probably seen this common tourist item plenty of times: a coconut husk hacked into the shape of a monkey. There’s a surprising amount of variety in coconut monkeys, in detail, structure, and quality. Some are just heads, some are full bodies. Some are realistic, some are cartoony. Some are just a suggestion of a monkey, some have full-fledged fingers and toes. Some play instruments. And some, yes, some are pirates. You may not look at coconut monkeys the same ever again.
