Cos They Are Good To Us

I am coming out of the spongmonkey closet.... I LOVE the new Quiznos commercial. The song is stuck in my head, will not leave, and I find myself bursting into the last bit at random moments, much to the dismay of the GM1's libido.
Something about your woman yelping "Dey got a PEPPAH BAH!" at a crucial romantic moment seems to be his main gripe.
UPDATE: Upon close examination of their "Moon Song", it appears that I was right... spongmonkeys and I were meant to be together.

by the way, it is NOT "sponge"monkey.... it's "spong". I should know, I'm the high priestess of spong around these parts.

eeeEEEEeeeEWWww those little rat-like critters have totally turned me off of oven-roasted sub sandwiches. "I love de subs" and all, but damn they're ugly...

Spongemonkeys rock.

I also suffer from Ear-Worms (check out for more on this dangerous condition). Scarriest of all is when a song trapped in my head is picked up by passers-by - I begin wondering how much damage I am causing to our economy when I become the mindless slave to stupid marketing jingles! It is truly Frightening (possibly on par with a fast-food chain using RATS to promote how good their food is.)

But they're NOT rats... they're spongmonkeys. And at any rate, as Victor ( would tell you, rats are wonderful. Maybe not feral ones in my sandwich shop, but in general... :)
And it's too late for me, Matt.... I'm already a fast food addicted slave. Gimme my big mac or gimme death!

These things make me run for the nearest bomb shelter. They are terrorist prairie dogs!

I've been out of the Spongmonkey closet for a couple of weeks now and it feels great.

I heartily endorse anything that stops a teething child mid-wail and engrosses her while I grab the Orajel...
