July 23, 2007: Monkey on a goat on a platform on a wire



It's Neatorama Collaboration Monday!



And the subject line says it all. What more do you need to know? It's a monkey on a goat on a platform on a wire!

The item is from China Daily, where the full story gives no more information (and one less interesting shot).

Don't miss the little guy's tongue, in case you didn't see it when you glanced at another animal IotD.

Be sure to check out our friends at Neatorama for more neato items all the time!



Uisge Beatha  Monday Jul 23 08:46 AM

Hey, even the monkey knows - tough tasks are easier with your tongue sticking out.



Shawnee123  Monday Jul 23 08:57 AM

Ohhhhhhhhhhkay. That's entertainment.



Flint  Monday Jul 23 10:07 AM

He's like the Michael Jordan of monkeys.



glatt  Monday Jul 23 10:21 AM

The Cellar IotD goat balancing images are getting more impressive.

What next?



Shawnee123  Monday Jul 23 10:21 AM

Wacky

The little tongue sticking out is priceless. Wild pic.



axlrosen  Monday Jul 23 11:29 AM

I can't tell if the goat is concentrating intently, or incredibly pissed off.

It's not the former since the goat could almost do this in its sleep. It's pissed off at the monkey for giving it a raspberry.


spudcon  Monday Jul 23 12:43 PM

Zoom in on the base of the pedestal. It seems Chinese tables can levitate beside the wire, not on it.



Shawnee123  Monday Jul 23 12:52 PM

Really strange that I heard this song this morning:

One little problem that confronts you,
got a monkey on your back.
Just one more fix, Lord, might do the trick.
One hell of a price for you to get your kicks. (hell, yeah)

Good eye Spud! Fake pic in my book. I'd still eat 'em though! Imagine, a BBQ'ed goat balanced on a dinner plate...Mmm, that's good eatin'!


MalzB  Monday Jul 23 04:23 PM

I love monkeys!



Undertoad  Monday Jul 23 04:56 PM

I'm going with not a fake and that the platform is permanently attached to the wire somehow.

Main reason not a fake: no reason to fake.



Shawnee123  Monday Jul 23 04:59 PM

If you look at the picture in the link, the goat seems to be floating around the wire in some way.

Their reason to fake? For attention. That's why there are hundreds of wacky photos of them sticking hooks in their eyelids and stuff like that. They're attention ho's.




Flint  Monday Jul 23 05:14 PM

More overzealous 'shop-calling...



Shawnee123  Monday Jul 23 05:18 PM

I'm not trying to be difficult. Did you look at the pic where the goat is stepping directly on the wire? It doesn't look right somehow. I was hoping you, and your kind, o grand experts of all that is photo and shopped, could explain why the goat seems to be hovering on the wire. IN the picture IN the link. Was hoping one of you photogs or big-time cartoonists could tell me.

I gotcher overzealous shop calling right here, bucko.

And your nose is showing.



Flint  Monday Jul 23 05:29 PM

If all four feet were touching the wire, he wouldn't be walking. Understand, this isn't a big deal to a goat. He's just waltzing along.



Spexxvet  Monday Jul 23 05:59 PM

There's a bump on a log on hole on monkey on a goat on a platform on a wire at the bottom of the sea....

Come on - sing it with me...



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Jul 23 06:49 PM

I think what Shawnee is seeing, is the half of the cloven hoof that's not on the wire, is hanging down on the other side.

Quick, someone PM Bri and get her in here to translate for us!

Well who ISN'T walking a fine line when you have a monkey on your back?

I love the look on Flint's dog's face...its like "oh boy, oh boy, oh boy...I'm gonna get em"



Nivek  Monday Jul 23 10:25 PM

Both the goat and the monkey are more talented than I'll ever be.



Flint  Monday Jul 23 11:10 PM

Holy crap, I just realized that "Wrangler" (post #13) was IotD for 10/29/2002. My Google Image search hit on Neatorama's caption "Cowboy Monkey" but it linked back here. And I have to say, I think Wrangler is photoshopped. I noticed, after posting the pic, that he is surrounded by image artifact.

I assumed "Wrangler" was real, because I thought he was Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey, seen below. As you can see from his website, Wrangler is real enough to be sponsored by Wrangler jeans and Justin boots, among others. I think I've seen Whiplash in Ye Olde Videoe Clippe Threade.



Shawnee123  Tuesday Jul 24 08:48 AM

I'm having trouble seeing where the weight is being borne on the front. But, I don't know much about goats...he might be strong enough that a split second of no weight on the front is do-able. Just looked funny to me. Eh, what do I know?



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jul 24 07:41 PM

The weight is on the front most hoof and the other front hoof is just lifting off the wire, I think.



Anada  Wednesday Jul 25 12:31 PM

I must agree that it doesn't look quite right... altough goats can easily balance themselves in the most incredible of places, this wire thing looks unreal to me too..



Shawnee123  Wednesday Jul 25 01:01 PM

Hi Anada!

Watch out, Cellarites are known for being very sensitive about pictures of other things.

Welcome!

Well ain't that just the end-all, be-all quote to shut us up.

Main reason to fake:

Hey, look what we can do with a monkey and a goat and a wire.

But no one does anything useless for no reason, esp not on the net.

Let's pull out another amazing seemingly random quote:

Nah, just tell me I'm wrong and don't try to explain it, Flint. Maybe you could cartoon it. I can't believe how senthitive you are over this pic.

DucksNuts  Wednesday Jul 25 09:03 PM

I dont think its a wire as such, but a bit of pipe or some such thing and goats are like cats....they can balance on nothing.

The hoof hanging down is actually pretty normal for goatie type stuff. Gunston (my angora) often climbs the fence out the front and when he is standing on it, one *pad* will be on the top rail and the other wont. It looks like normal goat gait with the positioning of the hoofs.

Wheres Goatman Griff in all this?



wolf  Thursday Jul 26 01:32 AM

He's off trying to figure out how to make them do this, and also how to charge admission.



Shawnee123  Thursday Jul 26 11:16 AM

Great cartoon! :p

Thanks Ducks, I was wondering about that. I didn't know goats had such balance. That was part of my question/confusion.

Welcome!
Thanks for the welcome!.. I don't mean to hurt anybody's feeling , and just to support the balancing capabitilites of goats: http://www.magicposters.com/images/p...ncing_goat.jpg, a Balancing Goat engraving from 1800's.


Shawnee123  Friday Jul 27 03:27 PM

Naw, you're fine, Anada. I was just using your post as a vehicle to continue a little picking on each other thingy I had going on with a couple other 'ites. It's all good clean fun. Even a slurp spider was looking a shop debate posted a few years ago.

That picture is really cool. Thanks!



Hillrick  Monday Jul 30 08:55 PM

Been there... saw that

At first glance I said this looked like something you would see in China, then I looked again and said "I think I saw this in Nanning!" Sure enough that is where they said it was, right down at the zoo. They have a soccer playing elephant that is more interesting though...



DanaC  Monday Jul 30 09:15 PM

Well, hello Hillrick! Welcome to the Cellar. A soccer playing elephant you say?



Hillrick  Tuesday Jul 31 05:21 PM

Hi Dana

Well...he only kicked a ball towards a goal, he wasn't heading theball or any Shoalin soccer moves...



Anada  Tuesday Aug 7 04:47 AM

And...

... Did it work?? (the picking on...)


xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Mar 2 11:29 AM

For the doubters...



Gravdigr  Sunday Mar 2 12:16 PM

I think it's all done with mirrors. Or remote control. Or magic. Or something!! I'm troubled by the rope/wire not changing (sagging) when the goat steps on and/or off, though. And the audience seems entirely unimpressed, judging from their lackluster response...



toranokaze  Monday Mar 3 12:33 AM

it is all done with photoshop
