Before moving from their office in Putney, staff at Meteorite held a final, low-key social event: a booze-fulled sock monkey competition.
Staff were provided with buttons and ribbons, but many decided to make their monkeys more unique and the hunt was on to find anything that could be used to accessorise their entries, no matter how bizarre or, apparently, inappropriate.
In fact, the only additions not considered appear to be taste and decency. This was evident in particular with the pictured “Tina Turner” monkey, with a head of doll’s hair (what have they got against dolls?), and Right Said Fred-inspired “G.A.Y.” monkey, complete with leopard-print thong and sequins.
The Diary is beginning to wonder if Meteorite ever does any real work.
