Dunno about you lot, but I'm on holiday.

"Can we do an all meme edition?" asks Jason from Gorilla Sushi, in response to the shameless populism of the last post.
In a word, no. There are many reasons why we can't, ranging from the irrevocable damage to my soul that would be a necessary consequence of the meme research I would have to do, to the utter impossibility of creating anything that could live up to the genius of Bananaphone. I also have no images that relate in any way to badgers or Kenya.
So no, no more meme-based cartoons.
Alright, just one:

What the crap? Monkey Day was two days ago and nobody told me? I'm very disappointed in you. Very disappointed.
In other news, I've become worryingly addicted to Project Wonderful -- it's like eBay for adspace! You may have noticed Monkey Fluids ads appearing on such prestigious sites as Alien Loves Predator and Wondermark. This costs me (bugger all) money for no real return other than the boost to my self esteem when I see a few more hits trickle in! You smell that? That's commerce, son.

Well that was moderately painless. Moved to a new template, which has some shiny new features (check out the new Site Feeds and collapsey archive) but is more of a pain in the arse to edit. And there's no Recent Posts feature, which I always kind of liked (you need to piss about with integrating Site Feeds to get the functionality back, and it doesn't look that hot anyway). Frankly, I'm not wedded to the new layout - if the consensus is that it's an unholy abomination, I might just go back to the old template.
Oh, and Monkey Fluids now has a presence on ComicSpace, which is like MySpace but for webcomics. Not sure if that's more or less sad.

So I've just changed over to Blogger Beta. I'll be fiddling with the site template over the next few days while I see what it can do, which may result in me ballsing up the whole thing temporarily as I figure out what I'm doing.
In short: If you see any weirdness in the immediate future, no, it's just you.

It's about time for another set of Questions that Are Asked with Some Degree of Frequency...
OK, see, what I do is I take pictures from old kids’ annuals, then add alternative captions for humourous effect. Clever, isn’t it? I bet no-one’s ever done anything like that before ever. Ever.
How delightfully whimsical. Can I play?
Sure – that’s what comments are for. Your suggestions for alternative captions are always appreciated. If I see one I particularly like, I’ll post it as a proper entry.
So you mean we end up doing your job for you?
Whatever. How often do you post new comics?
At the moment, every Tuesday and Thursday, plus miscellaneous announcements and ravings as they become relevant.
Bwaah! I am considerably too lazy to check your site every day to see if there’s something new! What can I do?
If you have an RSS reader or a Bloglines account, you can point it at either of the feeds listed under SITE FEEDS over on the right there. No, your other right. If you’re on LiveJournal, you can add the site syndication to your Friends list. Happy now?
Ecstatic. So, you get these pictures from old kids’ annuals. Which ones?
Currently, I’ve used:
The Book for Girls
The Brownies Annual 1958
Champion Book for Girls
Chick's Own Annual 1954
Girls' Crystal Annual 1952
Happy Story Book
Ideal Book for Girls 1934
Modern Book for Girls 1960
Monster Book for Girls 1947
The Oxford Annual for Girls 1933
The Oxford Annual for Girls 1939
Popular Book for Girls
The Prize 1958
Note that the works of Enid Blyton do not feature among them.
You’re a 30-year-old man. Why do you have so many girls’ annuals?
My girlfriend collects them – she wants to decorate a room with the colour plates one day.
I possess quantities of your human “money”. Is there some way I could part with it in exchange for themed merchandise?
Yep – go to CafePress. There are two shops worth of designs (I’m a cheap bastard, so I only use a free account, which means I can only have one design per type of product). If there’s a particular image you want on a particular item, send me an email and I should be able to sort you out.
