Today we are going to Wisconsin to see the House on the Rock. In the meantime, historian Mari adds to the Hartlepool monkey discussion:

this story made us all laugh when in york, partly because yorkies like to take the piss out of hartlepool folk, and partly because it got circulated as an 18th c. basis for some obscure measure of weight called a 'monkey'. i think it was supposed to have had something to do with how much the said "french" monkey weighed upon being hanged.
