    I thought monkeys were created in the monkey vacuum by fluctuations in the background monkeyness. In certain rare instances a new monkey and a new anti-monkey will be produced. In most cases the pair will annihilate each other, but occasionally the monkey pair will float apart and and a new kind of monkey is born. The anti-monkeys spend their days hiding in the deepest parts of the jungle, cause they’re just not that into us.
