“I’m still the head monkey so I got that going for me.” – Alex Wilkie (gotta love that story – one of my favorite RISK! stories yet)
Did she mean a Pontiac Firebird or a Ford Thunderbird? Probably a Firebird, because a Thunderbird is more of an old man’s car than a bad boy’s car.
I’ve listened to Risk! for a few years now and have enjoyed many of the stories, but Alex’s tale of his battle with the chimp had me laughing so hard I was crying! I kept imagining how scary yet hilarious it would be to witness this. I’ve been in situations like this although never with a chimp. I have a mechanism inside me that causes me to laugh hysterically when pain or death is creeping nearby. Good on you Alex for keeping your head straight. My favorite part was “He was sitting on the couch eating Cheerioes and gave me a look and I thought you little bastard.” I could see Buddy sitting there with those sad chimp eyes sticking his lips out at you, the head monkey. I hope Alex has some more stories to tell!
