All Aboard the Meme Express – Friday, September 12, 2008
On September 12, 1966, NBC television premiered a new television show, titled The Monkees. Featuring four young men (Mickey Dolenz, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork), the show actually launched a music career for the group. The Monkees became one of the first boy bands, to screams of delight from adolescent girls.
Today’s Meme Express is all about The Monkees or boy bands or simply monkeys.
Do you remember The Monkees?
Were you a fan . . . or not?
Whatever happened to the original Monkees, anyway?
Which is your favorite boy band . . . or even girl band . . . today?
How do you feel about monkeys?
When was the last time you actually saw a monkey?
Do you believe humans descended from monkeys?
Why or why not?
Feel free to use the questions and images . . . or not.
