From the Journal of Space Monkey Twins


Space Monkey investigative team has undertaken an ambitious new objective: Communication with the Humans. After much research most essential humanoid keyword has been determined: “Duck.” Exact meaning and usage of “duck” under continuing evaluation. Following are developing hypotheses and updates thus far.


Essential duck. Size, shape, and mouth-feel strangely addictive. We hope to acquire more sample ducks soon, as we believe they may appease the Spacemonkey masses.


Looks like a duck. Squeaks like a duck. Investigation ongoing.


We no longer believe this to be a duck.


Human response: “Not a duck–broccoli.” Interesting.

We test all boundaries, growing ever closer to communicative goals.


Until next time, your tireless

Space Monkey “Duck” Investigations

  1. Bear was saying “duck” about trucks for a long time, and then he called everything “duck,” and now I think he’s back to “duck” meaning actual ducks (which he sometimes refers to simply by quacking?) and trucks and the occasional misc. item.

    Language acquisition is weird.

    • Weird and so fascinating! The slow, slow progression of developments leading toward language. Already, with next to no words, it’s amazing how much I feel like we’re communicating. Sometimes I feel like I’m imagining it, but it’s definitely real.
