Those of you who know me know that I think a monkey riding a dog is the funniest thing in the world. Specifically, Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey riding a border collie. The border collie is generally not mentioned by name because, uh, monkeys live longer than dogs.

Below, you will see Whiplash in a commercial for a taco place and a short clip of him in action at a rodeo. I was introduced to Whiplash (figuratively – I’ve never actually met Whiplash but I would really, really fucking love to) in the early/mid 90s when I worked in a private club at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. Yeah. It was worth it just for the monkey antics.
