What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

Skeery Craigslist Ad

Spotted this one on my local Craigslist today.....1500+ Clown Collection.

"Might be time to downsize"....Ya think?



I just fainted.


  1. Ugh! Clowns freak me out..so I'm not going to be the one that buys them!
    Just off to hide behind the sofa until my nerves settle down ;o)

  2. Oh no! I wouldn't want even one of those clowns. I'm scared of them! They would be great for a Haunted House though :)

  3. OMG I had no idea other people were as freaked out by clowns and I am! (obviously there are those with some clowny love gene though!) LOL

  4. Shara~ I think there are more people like you that are creeped out by clowns than those that like (or can at least tolerate) them!! I have a few odd 'clown' related items I have picked up (NO - NOT 1500+ of them!!!!) that I was going to put on ebay... wonder if I'd be wasting my time?!
