By Ty Malkovich Bannerman [ Wed Sep 24 2014 9:04 AM ]

The three-breasted-woman is actually just a two-breasted-woman. Which is at least 33% less amazing. Also, her name is not "Jasmine Tridevil." Because, come on.

The threat to expose Emma Watson’s supposed nude photos after her UN speech on feminism was also a hoax.

Living with humans screws up chimpanzees.

A new brewery is opening up in the “Brewery District.” Another one is getting ready for a 2015 start. This brings the total number of breweries in this up to city to “Really? That many?”

John Malkovich is Malkoviching up some famous photographs.

Another Bitcoin centered company gets shut down by the Man. This time just because they didn’t ship special bitcoin computers that they promised. And also because they ripped off their customers for at least $3 million. Why does the government hate freedom and innovation?

Alibi Flashback: 20 Years of Great Monkey Covers

Yes, we know apes are not monkeys

The simian theme just does not quit at the Weekly Alibi, mostly thanks to longtime art director Tom Nayder’s fearless refusal to back down from the challenge of finding excuses to put his hairy best friends on the cover. (We have it on good authority that he does in fact harbor a chimp in his home.) Feast your eyes on 18 eye-gouging, monkey-riffic covers after the jump.

Farewell, Skating Monkey

By John Millington [ Tue Jun 21 2011 4:21 PM ]

Take a good look at this monkey. This may be the last time you will ever see him.

His filename mentions he’s more than just a monkey; he’s a skating monkey, though I see no skates. This makes me think that many years ago he was torn from some larger and older artwork, but to tell the truth, I don’t know his full story.

I only know he was last saved on July 6th 2003 and since then, has occasionally filled in whenever someone needed an arbitrary Alibi-branded image but didn’t want to bother the art department. For the last couple years, he has served as a default OGP image for Alibi stories or blogs which otherwise lack an image.

Today he retires from that job, handing over the reigns to a more professional and well-groomed Alibi representative, which I hope will be less distressing to readers. You see, there’s a problem with monkeys. Though he may appear innocent and happy, I think we can all agree that monkeys symbolize many evils (which the monkeys pretend to neither hear, see nor speak of):

1) Racism. You know that whenever white people mention monkeys, it’s really code for darker skinned people, don’t you?

2) People's callous disregard for the suffering of animal test subjects at the hands of the cosmetics and aerospace industries. Whenever someone uses monkey imagery, that’s practically advocacy for consuming more mascara and weather satellite photos, whatever the cost to our innocent Gaia-mates.

3) Science’s rejection of the special status humanity once enjoyed, prior to 1859 when a godless communist suggested that life could be shaped by processes which could be understood, like everything else in the world.

4) Perhaps this is just my own personal monkey-demon, but some friends once used to “point” a small stuffed gorilla toy (gorillas aren’t monkeys, but let’s not split hairs), such that its sideway stare was directed specifically at me. The monkey was watching me. I hated it. No matter how intimidatingly I stared back, it wouldn’t flinch. If my friends ever left the room, I would grab the monkey and hide it, in order to escape its relentless gaze.

5) Tell us your complaint about monkeys. Hey, we all know they’re bad, but exactly how? Monkeys are just like bananas, in that their imagery always means more though we pretend they’re merely themselves. Let’s just cut through the bullshit right away, and get down to how monkeys bother you.
