"Tube Monkey" evolved into "Transistor Man"...
And don't forget his "silicon" sister (with the manager mister)! groan... :rolleyes:

Uh, has anybody got any idea as to what the little simians are really throwing? The last time I went to the zoo, it certainly wasn't coconuts! I believe I'm gonna think twice before dissecting a dud tube... ;)
