Sing it with us now;

Marmoset there'd be days like this

There'll be days like this marmoset


Marmoset, marmoset!


Marmoset there'll be days like this,

there'll be days like this marmoset


I went walking the other day


everything was going fine

I met a little boy (turtle) named Billie Joe


and I almost lost my mind! [repeat chorus]

I love CO! that was great.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 05:52 AM

bleeen!!! <---since the first poster didn't call it.

You can keep those as pets right? You need like a license and whatever first I imagine, plus all the health issues. Still sooooooo nommable!

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 05:56 AM

I can't think of a better way to start out a gray Monday morning--you guys are the best!!

Outstanding job, Meg. I totally thought that was a NTMTOM special.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 06:08 AM

Steppy's knuckles hurt from trying to grab adorablesness thru monitor. She has now had her first dose of cuteness for day. Thank you

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 06:11 AM

They're so, so fingular!

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 06:15 AM

how do these tiny ones survive in the wild? anybody know? they are just so tiny and sweet.

maybe they swing fast.

thanks to all for the wonderful vid, which i am sending to my daughter.

One of these guys is actually a bad guy from Sonic 2. Look!


(I am such a dork)

These pics and the song have made me smile and warmed my ever-so-cold cockles while I huddle on the sofa in freezing North East England. Thanks, C.O!

This is a response to our 50 bazillion verses of "That's a Moray" right?
I need some rest to refill my pun-tank. ;)

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 06:25 AM

Awesome, Loved it! Good old fashioned silliness and puns on a Monday Morn! Starting out the gate giggling-Thanks CO!:D

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 06:30 AM

"Yeah, things are going fine until the Shirelles sue our pants off for this song>"

I love when the hovertext gets sarky!

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 06:37 AM

My Marmoset I never should
play with the Gypsys in the wood.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 06:50 AM

Wow. Wow. Wow.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 06:56 AM

They look like something designed by Dr Seuss. And Aquanet.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 06:57 AM

Pure genius. One of those things that makes me mad because I didn't think of it. (Of course, I shouldn't be that way--or so my marmoset.)

Now, can we cross one of those with one of my favorite cats and get a marmie-set?

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 06:59 AM

Best. Post. Ever.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:10 AM

I just found out that my 15+ year old "country kitty," who lives with my parents, passed away... this video was just what I needed! Days like this indeed, Marmoset...

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:11 AM

earworm, HELLO!

my marmoset i should be working, not looking at baby monkeys on CO ;)

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:16 AM

You know, I *am* singing.

(PS - Marmoset knock you out.)

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:16 AM

ok, marmoset (riding a turtle) DID knock me out - for the rest of the day, I am totally don't and won't be able to think of anything but marmoset on a turtle.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:28 AM

Not to be picky, but aren't a couple of those guys on the video tamarinds?

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:29 AM

Ummm... Hello Rule of Cuteness #14.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:30 AM

Whoops, just discoverd I called the little guys trees! The monkeys are *tamarins*

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:33 AM

PS, 2 Fav frames on the video:
"I met a little boy named Billy Joe
And I almost lost my mind!"

From henceforth, I decree all ring-tailed lemurs shall be named Billy Joe.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:36 AM

Theresa: poetic license. The lyrics need marmosets.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:37 AM

Theo, do you have your poetic license and regitration?

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:39 AM

[regurgitates frenetic lions]

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:42 AM

Thankyou CO!
Just thanks.
My mood has improved vastly from the sight of these little guys.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:45 AM

OMG the cute ... This was the perfect post for me

I have a Spanish test this morning and I shall be singing that song all through it and picturing all the Marmosets Lemurs and Tamarinds

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:49 AM

That was excellent! I'll be singing that the rest of the day!

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 07:59 AM

Teho, you're killing me! Who knew L.L. Cool J was really talking about monkeys! Although, I gotta tell ya, your Comfortably NOM was the best - I was giggling about that all weekend. Well, wait, I can't stop laughing about the marmoset, it might be a tie.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 08:02 AM

Bleen indeed!!

Can we get a collage wallpaper of these?!??!? Oh Please! Oh Please?! OH PLEASE!?!?!?

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 08:03 AM

ok, greatest lyrics EVA... BUT I am not a fan of monkeys...it seriously has something to do when I was little and my MARMOSET I was a monkey cause I climbed on everything and I hated it when she called me a monkey! lol

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 08:14 AM

OMG, my first ever accepted submission! I knew the Marmoset Song was the one. :D

According to ancient writings, Chinese scholars used to keep "ink monkeys" (mo hou) as pets in their studies. They are supposed to be very rare, the size of a human hand. They like to sleep in brush holders or desk drawers. And supposedly you can train them to grind ink, turn pages of books, and fetch brushes and papers for you. They live on various nuts and berries. Want!

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 08:45 AM

OMG. i love Pygmy Marmosets. They are seriously my favorite animal and rock the socks off the cute-o-meter. This made my monday!

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 08:55 AM

Marmo's are my most beloved creature. Though we can not have them as pets I worship them.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 08:55 AM

Yay! That put a huge smile on my face because I absolutely adore these little guys!

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 09:06 AM

I had to stop my primary activity of the morning to type this, namely pointing to one index finger with the other and saying agressively to no one in particular, "They're smaller than THIS, people. Do you UNDERSTAND?"

I will now spend part of the afternoon cleaning up the bits and smithereens of my recently exploded head.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 09:19 AM

I know someone who breeds these! I think they require a permit which is not hard to obtain, but varies from state to state... I dunno, they're cute but primates in general make baaaaad pets (biting, poop-throwing, etc). I think I would rather see them at the zoo, lol.

Reminds me, Oregon Zoo used to have this program where they kept some of the Golden Lion Tamerians outside in a small grove of trees so they would get used to living outdoors, before they shipped them to Brazil to be released to the wild. I LOVED seeing those little guys outside in the trees! Too bad the grove blew down in a windstorm (during the winter when there weren't any of the little guys outdoors). But the program was successful, the area they were releasing them in is now at max Golden Lion Tamerian capacity.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 09:25 AM

...Wait, you mean that's not the real lyrics to the song?

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 10:01 AM

I'll have that song stuck in my head for a while. It's funny... when you see the word marmoset written while she's singing, it makes it seem like that's what she's really saying!

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 10:37 AM

crazyweinerdoglady, I sympathize, but I don't think your childhood trauma compares to the girl whose grandmother told her to wash her "monkey." I often think of that story and laugh. (Like now!)

twoferrets, hugs to you. Kitties should never leave us--at least they stay in our hearts forever.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 11:05 AM

Um, Meg, don't you mean "albino marmoset set"?


 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 11:25 AM

Marmoset on a turtle? Is that like kitten on a Roomba?

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 11:27 AM

Please excuse Ding from work, an overdose of Cute has caused her brain to go all splody.

 |  Nov 24, 2008 at 11:34 AM

They look as though Doctor Seuss designed them.

[Wait -- he didn't?? - Ed.]
