White Elephant day here at PNWHQ. Here's my winnings:
is it a candle?
A chalk money on a surfboard, c.1960's early air brush paint marks and a good cast made to turn out a hundered, sold by the Coast maybe, cost around 4.00 in the early 1960s, need to feel the object, great for birthdays...A/T..Chalk Art collector once.
I have a chalk monkey, but he's not cool enough to ride a surfboard..hrrrmphh!!
BTW, what would it take for you to part with said chalk money , Mike?
A lot. I already traded a camel statuette for him.
I tend to follow <a href="http://www.pegasusnews.com/events/2008/dec/26/114815/">Todd Snider's</a> lead on such matters:
"...I can't be bought. Then again, on the other hand, how much have you got?"
Man, that thing would have gone great with my creepy monkey lamp.
Shut it, Pavel! Now Mike, let's see..I've got two small children..they don't talk back much and feeding them is optional.
Now we know why the cops have been following him.
Since everybody loves me and my monkey, I'll share more backstory. Tasha, one of our ad reps, used to work in the music industry (has lots of great band stories). This particular monkey, which she chipped in to our White Elephant was record label swag for the band <a href="http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=12653117">Sprung Monkey</a>.
Here's a medley of their greatest hit:

The only thing cooler than a Sprung Monkey is a Spongmonkey:
"Since everybody loves me and my monkey"
Just the monkey, sir..and my offer still stands. If your 401k goes to hell in a handbasket let me know..I'll gladly take over the payments on said monkey.
THEY'VE GOT A PEPPER BAAAAAAAAAAR
Also, Sprung Monkey isn't bad.
