Ben + Monkeys = Disaster

Sorry, this video has come at the high cost of my sanity, as well as the life of my computer. I think uploading this video and the events that ensued, have aged my computer by 12 years. This video was supposed to accompany the text below, as well as the other video. This is more what I am talking about when I reference Ben's "love" for animals. It is quite a bit longer than it needs to be, just get to the middle of it for the good part.

That is hilarious. I am totally with you Ben! I would be running as fast as I could. When I first heard about the monkeys, I thought, "oh, monkeys, how cute. This will be fun." Then when I saw them climbing on you and grabbing from you and thinking about them attacking and biting, I was thinking, "gross" and "I don't ever want to see a monkey that close up."

I am only okay with domesticated animals. Dogs and horses, love them. Cats, um okay, I guess they are tolerable. Birds, don't even think about it. No, you can not sit on my finger or peck my eyeballs out, sorry. Monkeys, you are on this list now also.

What up Riley's! We're glad we get to see your family on your blog. You all look so good. Insun thinks Laine looks just like Natalie. She's so cute! When are you guys ever going to make it back to the US? Ben, are you still working for the same company? So many questions....If you guys ever make it to Southern California let us know. We would love to see you!

Yeah I think I would be freaked out and screaming. I love them at the zoo behind the glass. You guys were actually great sports. The dog story is hilarious! What ever happened to the dog? I am just not an animal lover. I don't know what is wrong with me !

LOVE it! SOOOOOOOO funny! I also LOVE animals and Taylor isn't a big fan. After three years I finally talked him into letting me get a cat. It was a disaster. The cat was SO wierd and hated people. So now Tay's only experience with animals is a bad one. I have tried to tell them that it is not always like that,...Oh well. I lost that one.

Both of those videos were so funny, but my favorite was "I just got mugged by this monkey!"

Nathan said...

Who knew Ben was so afraid of monkeys!? I could have used that info in college. Rich with a bike in his bed and Ben with a monkey in his bed. Or maybe I should have thrown a monkey in Ben's shower instead of kool-aid. I bet a monkey would not stain your face as bad.

Those were so funny. Ben is hilarious. I always loved that he would pretend how much he loved animals and then his body language would be telling another story. I love the monkey beating in the sound of the video. Thanks for sparing us of the footage!! Just kidding, real funny stuff!

Ok, this is hilarious! Yes, note the ! here. Seriously, I have never seen those before. I love that you went ahead and climbed up to see those monkey, I would have wet myself it would have scared me so bad. Next time I see you remind me to tell you about when my friends Steph got Brained by a monkey. And yes, classic Ben's love for animals. I love that he just ran away, too funn!
