Robot or Monkey?

So Nomi and I were watching the final episode of this week's Daily Show special report, "Evolution Schmevolution," and at the end they showed their usual "moment of Zen." This time, they showed a clip of a monkey playing a trombone, followed by a clip of a robot playing a trumpet.

I decided that this meant we had to get either a monkey or a robot. But which one? The monkey would be messy, but the robot would require regular maintenance.

And then Nomi made the perfect suggestion: a robot monkey! The advantages of both, and the disadvantages of neither.
