I have to say, I had no idea that offering to dance like a monkey would be quite so appealing. Apparently, though, it’s a big hit– John Scalzi proclaimed it “the comedy highlight of 2008.” This, from a year featuring Tina Fey as Sarah Palin.

In the two days since Scalzi’s post, donations have jumped from $1,700 to almost $4,200. Which still isn’t $6,000, so I’m not dancing yet, but I am making sure I know how to record video with the webcam, because the whole thing looks disturbingly possible….

Feel free to provide suggestions on what dancing like a monkey would look like. YouTube isn’t much help at this point, but there is this:

Which, um, is a song, and has the word “monkey” in it. So that’s almost like a dancing monkey. Kind of.

Anyway, make a donation. Thanks.

    I think you should go for the classic “organ grinder monkey” dance.

    You’ll need a little red jacket, and some kind of cap strapped to your head, and a little tin cup. To the sound of organ grinder music, scamper about and occasionally shove the tin cup at people.

    For bonus points, get panicked and start screeching at some point.
