"Give 'em a Mojo Monkey and he'll work his
monkey magic on them"
In other words, he's working.
He's subtle. He's cool. He's making folks do stuff they probably would do anyway, but it's more fun to credit the monkey.
Now we just sit back and watch the show.....
And as for the previous owners:
Joe went to the eye doctor to pick up his spiffy new glasses the other day and the first thing they ask him is "How is the monkey? Is he working???!" He says yes and proceeds to fill them in. They laugh an evil laugh and tell him that things have never been better at the office.
