A Clockwork Monkey
After following a link to T-shirt designs on io9.com I saw this funny graphic of a 'Clockwork Monkey', drinking his drug-laced milk. It is just one of the endless possible pop culture icons that can be monkeyed with.
Back in high school I watched A Clockwork Orange several times & found it to be disturbingly crazy. The movie's dialogue and fictional lingo is totally off the wall. Stanley Kubrick somehow makes the character Alex almost likeable, despite the fact that he's a psycho scumbag.
Actually, the brutal depictions in A Clockwork Orange make it apparent how little we ultimately differ from the other simian animals in the world.
