Animal Alphabet: U is for Uakari

Nothing special to say about this week's Animal Alphabet entry.

The uakari is a funny-looking monkey with a body like Hartza's and a head like a certain Nazi bedeviler of Captain America.

In other words, it looks like a tomato on a haystack.

Is this version better?

Next week: something like an art collector.

Another winner! I love the Hamlet-esque pose, perfect! "Alas, poor Big Boy..."

I was going to beefsteak instead of big boy, but as long as it's recognizable as a tomato, we're in business.

For the pose really to look like Hamlet, simply swap the uakari's head for the tomato.

I like his facial expression. Uakaris look like grumpy old men.

Isaac said...

Jack Lemmon might have looked a teeny bit like an uakari, but I think Walter Matthau in his age looked more like a different monkey.

And really, to me, uakaris look more like the guy who was the voice of Piglet, also possessed by Jack the Ripper near Argelius II and treated psychiatrically by Bob Newhart.

By which I mean no disrespect to any of these late actors, all of whom I admire a great deal.
