MONKEYBALL: Isaac at WKIKYA asks the question that's on all of our minds: why is the current Health Scare of the Week called "monkeypox," which it is spread by prairie dogs and has nothing at all to do with monkeys?
I think it's the same logic that Conan O'Brien uses when he refers to all animals-having-sex footage as "monkeyporn," even if the animals aren't themselves monkeys. But make no mistake: monkeypox and monkeyporn do NOT mix. At least, they certainly shouldn't.
