Every Inchie Monday: Monkey

Hello Folks, 

Well I have found  my copy of HHGG and so can tell you where this week's word, Monkey, (for every Inchie Monday) comes from, although some of you may remember, as I did.  After they are pushed out of the Vogon Constructor ship they get caught up by the improbability drive of the Heart of Gold, the travelling duo see many odd, improbable, things, including "an infinite number of monkeys outside who want to talk to [Ford and Arthur] about this script for Hamlet they've worked out." (Chapter 9)

. Now the monkeys typing Shakespeare is a mathematical idea - - "The infinite monkey theorem [which] states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare."  (Wikipaedia).  OK...

On to the inchies.  First up is the Chinese character for Monkey because 2016 is the Year of the Monkey.

I have two quilled monkey ideas:  One, the monkey:

and two, something for him to eat - because my monkey doesn't quite fit into one inch.

Hope you are having a good year of the Monkey.  See ya'll next week.


  1. I forgot that this is the year of the monkey! Great job on all 3 of them, I really love the quilled ones they are both awesome!

  2. Fabulous inchies, love the quilled ones.

  3. Oh my another lateral thinker - you have all put me to shame!! And I have learnt something else - didn't know it was the Year of the Monkey and I love all your inchies - great work.

  4. Wonderful post with lots of info. Thank you for that and your inchie are terrific. My husband was born in a year of the Monkey.

    Love Chrissie xx

  5. Thanks for keeping us all up on the story line, Kia! I could not remember how monkeys fit into it, at all. Love your quilling--esp the banana. Cute! Cheryl

  6. I love that you've given us so much variety...I did know That it's the year of the monkey as I'm born in a year of the monkey (turn 60 in July!) but it's also great that you've given us a banana to go with the geeky chap!


  7. Such a delightful post, Kia. I don't care that he didn't quite fit, that monkey is so cute!

  8. Wow, three inchies this week. They are all brilliant. I like the idea of the first and third one an the second is just cute.
