It Is Did You Know Tuesday!

That there is a 4th non-evil monkey? Oh my hell, say it isn’t so!?!

Alright so we all know the popular three monkeys:

Mizaru ~*見猿*~: See No Evil


Kikazaru ~*聞か猿*~: Hear No Evil


 

Iwazaru ~*言わ猿*~: Speak No Evil



Wait, they have a long lost brother.? A brother, perhaps cast out from the civilization due to not being a conformist and being an evil doer perhaps? Unfortunately not, for he is Shizaru ~*し猿*~, meaning Do No Evil.

Wow thanks Shizaru, we were hoping that there was just one monkey out there that would stand up for those of us who do not want to cover our eyes, ears or mouth, but nooooo you have to be out there crossing your arms over your crotch, abdomen or your chest and promote the non-doing of evil. Well I say poop on you Mr.! Wait monkeys are known for slinging poop. Hmmmm.

Alright, so there is this shrine in Japan that has these monkeys carved on to it, and is the source that made these monkeys popular. It is called the Tosho-gu shrine in Nikko, Japan. However, I only see the three monkeys, I do not see their 4th brother. I really think he is on hiatus doing evil. The hypocrite. Oh yeah, and there is this “so called” middle school of the sect that suggest these anti-evil monkeys are representing, woot woot, the three dogmas.


Okay, I know some of my readers and they are going to bring up, Evil Monkey, from Family Guy. No he does not count for he is a cartoon and he actually became good for a time.

My blog name is a Stewie quote from family guy. Such a funny cartoon.

Just gone to publish your last comment and it seems to have disappeared, not sure why.

were you wanting seed?

Calling monkeys "evil" is an exaggeration, I would describe them as a pest. They are basically thieves that piss your head.

I actually have a wooden carving of the three non-evil monkeys. The fourth one is missing here too. Hmmm.

Fun post!

BeMistified said...

Oh Jeff, how does that not surprise me?

Sweetie: Remember, if you come upon two evils that you feel you need to do, pick the one you have never tried before.

Broccoli: I have reposted my comment on your blog. I ♥ Stewie!

Gorilla: You are way too funny

Terry: I really think the 4th has a double life, I really do.

Dede: You will find him at the bar hitting on women, so I hear.

AFCG: See above, that is why it is hard to do what he says. The whole "do as I say not as I do" doesn't apply here.

French: Thanks!

Eemah: I like!
