    An alternative "other" option in polls, to be used if you feel none of the regular options applies.

    Beside the Giant Radioactive Monkey, you might also see the Sexual Harassment Panda, or various mixes/variants like the Radioactive Pandahead.

    And the Suit-Wearing Chimp made an all-too-brief appearance, as well.

    Cgannon came up with the suit-wearing chimp, and MrPresident came up with the GRM and SHP (albeit the latter really comes from South Park).

    Along with Radioactive Monkey, Sexual Harassment Panda, and Suit-Wearing Chimp, try Constipated Rhino.

    A link to the picture in Image editing fun by Lyonese should provide the indubitable proof of the radioactive monkey.

    IIRC it was raijer who catch one.

    Wow Tass... I can't believe anyone remembers that! A tip of that hat goes to Mr. President, without whom there would be no giant radioactive monkey, which would make the world a colder and darker place, IMHO.

    It was nothing more then a sarcastic or immature poll option when none of the other options applied.

    Now it has become either a 'cult-classic' or a nuisance, as it is being added in polls in addition to 'other' or 'none of the above' options.

    Personally, I say they get rid of it from the polls that have an 'other' option, as all it does is skew results more. If it stays in as a replacement for 'other' I would like to see it listed as 'other/shp.'

    I'd like to see a poll on how many people want to see it keep being used in polls and how many feel it's ridiculous. I'm guessing the thread would be closed according to "spam" policy, which is all the more reason why it shouldn't be allowed (as a stand alone) in the first place.

    Just my opinion.

    It is a tired, overused cliche that most of us have long since grown tired of.
