Well, why not?!?!? Isn’t it a great name? You’ll never forget it!
Yep, there isn’t really anything deep and meaningful behind it, and you can’t really order monkeys on this site, whether via the mail or otherwise.
But who thought of the name?
My wife, Andrea, came up with the name in a goofy brainstorming session we were having a few years ago. The funniest thing was, she came up with it at a rest stop on the PA turnpike on our way back from Jim Thorpe, PA (a place I’ll be sure to write about in the future, we love it there!). Someone must have heard us discuss it, because a few days after we talked about it, I looked to see if it was already taken and found out that it had been registered the day after she came up with it! Lesson learned: Don’t discuss brilliant ideas in public, because you never know who will register mailordermonkeys.com!
Fortunately, the domain thief had let it expire (probably depressed that I never contacted them with thousands of dollars for their great domain name) and I eventually got it. And, it wasn’t until recently that I learned, back in the 60s, there were actually ads in comic books for monkeys you could mail order. Google it.
Hope you like the domain (and remember it!), find some interesting reading, and come back soon. Feel free to leave a message as well!
