The Pink Monkey
I was recently at walmart, the week before halloween, with my boyfriend. We were picking out a few last minute decorations for our home. As we began to approach the registers, a man came around the corner, walking the same direction as us, toward the registers. Walking with him was another man, or possibly a woman, wearing a pink monkey mascot outfit. We continued walking behind the pink monkey, unable to see what he had in his hand, but rather curious as he kept showing other people, while jumping around in a very excited fashion. We finally got up to the front, and ended up a lane or two down from the pink monkey. We watched as he checked out with his buddy, growing more and more excited as the cashier completed the transaction. As the cashier handed his buddy the reciept and change, the pink monkey ran up and down the front of the store, showing EVERYONE his purchase, while screeching and dancing around. In his hand? A single banana… After his happy dance was done, the pink monkey literally SPRINTED out of the store, waving his banana around at everyone he passed. I’ve been around some funny stuff in walmart before, but this one just took the cake. I don’t think I saw a single person NOT laughing as he ran from the register out the door. I love Halloween!
