Someone wanted to know why we called the LO Munckie and why we spell it this way instead of "Monkey".
My answer is pathetically silly. "The Big Bang Theory". Not the actual scientific theory but the television show. I have a minor obsession with Sheldon. I think he is one of the most entertaining actors in a sitcom since Joey Tribbiani. He takes everything too seriously, works too often and this leads to hilarious conversations with his peers.
One night while watching, Sheldon referred to someone has a Homunculus. He goes on to explain that a Homunculus is "a perfect little person". Well, we took that and shortened it to Munckie - our perfect little person, who we love so much, even though we cannot see them.
