We have a thing for Biggie mashups. The first song of the week ever was "Party and Bullshit" by Ratatat ft. Biggie's vocals. This week, courtesy of Ddpesh, Biggie vocals from Nasty Feel and mashed it up with Justice's remix of MGMT's "Electric Feel". Sounds pretty freakin tight. Mondays suck, and we're trying to help cure your "Case of the Monday's."

Contrary to what you may think, you cannot just walk into the bank and cash an oversized check--those checks are just for PR purposes. I'd be interested in learning the history of the oversized check. I know it wasn't just created for Happy Gilmore.
I was tempted to bring the check to the bank with me today and try to cash it--and videotape the experience. But we had some technical difficulties.
Today we got an email from the Dignman Center and BB&T; informing us how to collect on the prize money.
What will we be using the money for?
1)You know what I would do if I had a million dollars? I would invest half of it in low risk mutual funds and then take the other half over to my friend Asadulah who works in securities...
2)Making more funny t-shirts
3)Making more graphic t-shirts
4)Revamping our website to make it more Google friendly (when you google funny t-shirts, we want to be first).

Yesterday I decided that I wanted to get to the office early, so I left my apartment at 9 AM. I was rewarded with a lot of traffic and an extra 25 minutes to my early morning commute. I learned my lesson. Today I'm still working from my apartment.
Early bird gets the worm? More like, early bird gets stuck in traffic.

If you recall, we wrote a blog about one of our customers entitled "Cause Breaking up is hard to do." It's one of my favorite blog posts about a customer, for a number of reasons, but it was also the start of our Things you can't find on google series. During that post we created our "Dumpee discount," where we offer a 15% discount to any customer who recently breaks up with his/her significant other.
I then googled "dumpee discount" and found that no one else in the history of time has ever written those two words, side-by-side. Is Crooked Monkey the only brand caring enough to help alleviate the rebounding process--i.e. promoting consumerism as a way to mask any deeper or lingering issues? It seeems so.
Anyways, that same client who broke up with her boyfriend (in the time it took her to order and then receive her shirt) wanted a refund. And because we love giving refunds to our customers of funny t-shirts, we proceeded with it.
Fast forward to today, when we are working on closing our books for 2008. We noticed that our merchant provider did not process the refund correctly--resulting in a bank error in Crooked Monkey's favor. The customer didn't notice that the refund wasn't processed, and since we never heard from her we could've simply moved on without processing the refund, in essence "fixing the glitch (see youtube video below)". But since we have a moral conscience, are not some evil corporation (like Initech), and love our customers, we mailed out a check today for the refund. It's fun to do good in this world.

Why does it say paper jam when there is no paper jam.
