Is the glass completely empty or is there a monkey on it?

Posted by: ze-mag at September 23, 2002 01:56 PM

Hell Wil, this piccy is 288 KB !!! Whoever is paying the webhost bill is in for one hell of a shock if you get too many visitors.
Anyway isn't it supposed to have WWDN or 50,000 monkeys, or somethin' on there too ?
OK - you sold me.... how much ? Unless of course you're gonna visit EBay again :-)
It would sure look better wih beer in it though.

You don't put skunk squeezin's in a monkey glass...

You put banana juice in a Monkey glass...

BAHAHAHAHA!

(Someone, plese, save me from the gutter, for the current is strong.)

Posted by: Cherish at September 23, 2002 02:03 PM

Actually, the image is from the ebay page, so it won't matter how big it is. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!

Okay, I'll stop now.


Cool glass though. I wish I could bid on 'em!

Cherish, you evil twin you. We were doing evil laughs at the same time. ;)

Posted by: Toonces at September 23, 2002 02:04 PM

I have that exact same glass! You can buy them at Cost Plus for two bucks, and I love them. It kind of disturbs me that the moneky is oddly sheep-like, though.

Posted by: Jaime at September 23, 2002 02:05 PM

Heh! GIMPped it smaller, resaved, now it's just 96K.

Yep, I got them at Cost Plus. The image links to an auction for an autographed version =]

Think of the children!

Think of the monkeys!

Think of the monkey children!

Think I'll go have a beer...

Posted by: Zeno at September 23, 2002 02:17 PM

mmm... monkey.

mmm... beer.

mmm... cool story later.

Posted by: Courtney at September 23, 2002 02:24 PM

Wil,

Are you okay, man? I'm sad from visiting your auction, and I don't really know why.

Take care,

Posted by: Drakensykh at September 23, 2002 02:50 PM

Hi Wil! Great update! It was really informative and full of fun facts for the whole familiy!

Plz join the http://superevil.tv forums! We are so very low, and a underground leader/actor such as yourself would save our morale. Thx!

Posted by: Tallfarm at September 23, 2002 02:52 PM

Sometimes Monkeys make people cry.

It's weird like that.

Posted by: wil at September 23, 2002 02:52 PM

Would you like to buy a monkey???....

Posted by: tanyak at September 23, 2002 03:16 PM

Ya know, there's nothing like a tall glass of Monkey in the mornin' to start off the day...

Posted by: kcflatlander at September 23, 2002 03:18 PM

bad monkey!

or like my alex says... FREE THE MONKEYS!

i'm such a dork...

Posted by: kristin at September 23, 2002 03:21 PM

Monkeys are good, yes.. now if only we had a Cost Plus here in Darwin, Australia!

Actually, I'm much more fond of lemurs. ;)

Posted by: lori at September 23, 2002 03:25 PM

That really does look like a sheep. A brown sheep. I can't really explain why, but I think it is really fun that Wil found some glasses he likes, bought some extra for people that would also like them, and is selling them on ebay. Its such a simple little thing that would have been impossible 10 years ago. It made me smile.

Posted by: theothercourtney at September 23, 2002 03:45 PM

50,000 monkey's my butt...there's really been only one monkey all along...and he's not even at the typewriter!...bet he's plastered now that he's sucked all the gin outta that glass!

Posted by: d. burr at September 23, 2002 03:55 PM

Nick Nolte liked to drink from his Mihnkey glass.

nice looking monkey, although i prefer the rabid kind. (click my name)

Posted by: brian at September 23, 2002 04:04 PM

OH MY GOD!! THE GLASS IS COMPLETELY EMPTY!!! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: Ryan_W at September 23, 2002 04:09 PM

somebody better buy wil's damn glasses or he's never gonna get off this monkey thing!...let alone post anything new!...buy the glasses!...they make a perfect gift for all occasions!...and they're easy to use to...just fill 'em and drain 'em!

Posted by: d. burr at September 23, 2002 04:33 PM

It's already at $76.00 at eBay.

I sell Pint Glasses all over the place at UE for like $10 and you think people get all excited? Noooooo.

Stupid Wheaton and his Stupid Monkeys.

Posted by: Roughy at September 23, 2002 04:56 PM

Just cleaning out the garage and found some old glasses and put them up for auction. Good for you! Wil, your making all of the fans here -excited-! We were cleaning at my house too, is it hard to set up an E-bay account? We are gonna sell some of our junk. Right now I am watching TNG on TNN! Wil was (is still) so CUTE!

Posted by: Amber at September 23, 2002 06:01 PM

It's amazing what people will buy to own a piece of Wil.

Posted by: G at September 23, 2002 06:07 PM

Although this monkey may look like a sheep do not be fooled. Afterall the catarrhine nose (characteristic of old world monkeys) is clearly visable, the eyes are towards the front of the head and the skull is in the shape of a dome. Unlike the sheep which is a prey animal therefor having the eyes more towards the sides of the head. But I don't know what the hell is going on with those mickey mouse ears. Obviously the artist did not consult the zoo on this piece.

Posted by: Penny at September 23, 2002 06:24 PM

dude- don't tell me you ran out of Heinekin- That's so wrong!!!!!!

Posted by: Andie-Gypsy_girl at September 23, 2002 06:36 PM

I thought Cost Plus changed their name to World Market? Maybe I need to go make a trip and pick some up....

Posted by: heavyD at September 23, 2002 07:41 PM

have you SEEN my blog? too bad the bidding is waay past my market level for glasses... great promo!

Posted by: amancay at September 24, 2002 12:37 AM

Wil,

That was amazing!
As obvious as it should already be to us, if there is one life lesson I'll take from wilwheaton.net (And I will) it's that celebrities are human. Man, did that story ever bring me back. You always assume that celebs are these invincible amazing people who do EVERYTHING you've always wanted to do. I guess it takes stories like this to realize that celebs still have feelings and aren't made of stone.

I think you've taken us all in that time machine with you, though we're all getting off at different stops.

Posted by: WilliamKnight at September 24, 2002 01:02 AM

I often wonder why people play money for an autograph.

I mean, what is it you're getting.

A signature.

Go work retail, accept credit cards, get tons of signatures.

What makes celebrities signatures so important?

When they write "To my friend Dave, have a great life, hugs and kisses, etc etc" do they mean it? Or are they thinking "Geez Dave, if this'll get you off my back...(sigh)"

Then you think of the price.
over $100 for a glass with a signature on it. When you think about it, the only thing, other than the $2 cost of the glass, that wil invested in it is time.
I'm glad wil can put a price on his time, I can't. I have a real hard time doing it.
Then again, i'm rather whacked. =D

later

Posted by: UnSleePingFienD at September 24, 2002 02:43 AM

Whoops! Ignore my comment, was meant for the story above this one :)

Posted by: William Knight at September 24, 2002 03:15 AM

that monkey does look like a sheep.

maybe it's a monkey-sheep hybrid called meep or shonkey or shmonkey or shmeep or something... :D

Posted by: suzy at September 24, 2002 04:33 AM

Or maybe it's just feeling sheepish cause of being
sold on Ebay pretending to be a monkey?!

no this does not make any sense ..its too damn early.

Posted by: bluecat/redblanket at September 24, 2002 05:53 AM

Uh...are you making money off this? Seems kinda tacky to be selling your own swag.

Posted by: Jinkster at September 24, 2002 06:36 AM

I just checked the latest bid for the glasses on ebay, and the bid is up to $112.50 made by stargazer7of9...hrm...sounds familiar... ;-)
The "shmonkey" (as per suzy), looks like it needs more to it. Wil's autograph would fill up the empty space around the glass, but we need some nice, relaxing beverage to fill up the inside. :)

Posted by: Anne at September 24, 2002 07:47 AM

150 bucks for glasses?? OMG, Wil, does this prove to you that we still love you?

Posted by: s'becks at September 24, 2002 10:26 AM

Wil,

You are right to call your readers monkeys. Whatever you write or say or sell, is automatically touted "the coolest thing ever!" All the monkeys are always so far up your ass cuz they all want to be your bestest friend... you must be making a killing off these idiot sycophants. You should try auctioning off a piece of your own shit- you'd still probably get a $100 bucks for it.

ha ha good luck!

Posted by: Spacer at September 24, 2002 10:58 AM

he-he monkey..What wil you drinking? Banana juice?;)

Posted by: Agnes at September 24, 2002 12:38 PM

Cool monkey! Reminds me a bit of the Monkey Island computer games. I loved those when I was a kid. :)

Posted by: Emily at September 24, 2002 01:24 PM

Oh, no. Don't do this to me! Monkeyness from Wil Wheaton? I'm too poor for this!! But... I want. *sniff*

Posted by: pamela at September 25, 2002 09:40 AM

Well, the glasses finally sold for $177.50. Congrats to the lucky winner. Wil, you should send the person a photo of yourself drinking out of your own monkey glass.

Posted by: loretta652 at September 26, 2002 01:57 PM

I just wanted to say that Jake of 8bit Joystick.com is a proud supporter of Evil Ninja.net's
Buy Bush a PlayStation 2 Campaign
http://www.evilninja.net/buybush.htm
Quoth the site.
Simply put, BBPS2 is a protest fund-raiser. The object is to raise enough money to buy President George W. Bush a PlayStation 2 and a copy of SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs, in the hopes that he uses it rather than, say, Iraq to live out whatever gung-ho cowboy commando trip he's on.

Posted by: Jacob Metcalf at September 27, 2002 01:17 PM

oh to be just an ordinary guy huh!
but the fans just won't let go wil they lol
instead of quasimodo saying "the bells, the bells"
there are famous people (what does that mean anyway "famous")out there saying "the fans, the fans".
keep it up wil, just an ordinary "famous" guy.
nice to know Mr stewart was truthfull about your acting ability, and obviously had a great deal of respect for you also! another ordinary "famous" guy? (ref: your faq)
regards to you and yours
reb and mine

Posted by: reb at September 28, 2002 12:36 PM

Holy shit, wheaton, you are the devil. $177.50 for two goddamn monkey glasses? Your fans are fucked in the head.

There is no god.

I think I'll get drunk and try to forget you exist.

Posted by: Fluffy at October 1, 2002 06:58 AM

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA YOU DIDN'T CALL YOU MORON

Posted by: AHAHAHAH at October 1, 2002 08:46 AM

How much for the glass of monkey shine, I dont want too see, speek, or hear type. That is the kind of drink I need. The Needs Of the Monkey out weigh the needs of many empty Monkey Glasses. My wager is 5000000 Quatloos for the New Commer.

Posted by: Peter J. Vouaux at October 3, 2002 11:45 AM

I wouldn't drink out of a friggin' monkey glass. I'm a MAN for chrissakes! I drink from the BOTTLE!
