Big (expensive) Ape Crap

Hello to you.

Unbeknown to many, I’ve got this strange fetish towards stuffed plushies. Useless and totally unnecessary, they sit in my home with no purpose whatsoever other than to age and gain a thin layer of grey from the dust. During high school, a chick came and looked in my room and told me it looked like a girls room, after judging by the amount of stuffed animals that were in it. Let’s keep in mind here that my sister owns a few. However, I would say I own just as much as her, simply on the basis that I store some of it in my room and she has yet to challenge my supposed ownership of these items. That’s how things work over here I guess.

I saw this thing yesterday, apparently the BAPE brand is celebrating 15 years of designing obscenely expensive boutique stuff, and this Baby Milo has not been spared from this cruel trend: 118,000 yen, or around $1600 Canadian. But think of it this way prospective buyers: It’s a fucking massive monkey that will sit in your home and will at least provoke some response from your 3 year old sibling or cousin. When I was that small I wish I had something gigantic like that towering over me. That would have been epic.
