New Blimp Concept

The culmination of football season compels me to discuss the topic of blimps. You've seen them flying above stadiums (like the Goodyear Blimp over Beaver Stadium in the picture below).

Here's a closeup of the Goodyear blimp. Sure, it's a classic, but what if someone designed a new and improved blimp?
Some brilliant, innovative individual should pitch the concept of a sock monkey blimp to Goodyear. Of course a perfect specimen will be required to serve as a model for the new design. Which sock monkey would fit the bill? I know what you're thinking... Big Monkey! Below is a rendering of the prototype blimp. Goodyear should take a risk to completely change the blimp business, and put this sock monkey blimp into production. What do you think? Vote for your favorite - the classic, old fashioned blimp above or the brilliant new sock monkey blimp below.

I disagree. I discussed it with the airship crew and nobody wants to get caught working around the "taint" area of a "blimpchimp".
The regular airship scares all of the psychotic people. Imagine what a 200 foot long monkey do to their fragile minds.

p.s. I do have several monkey wrenches, and Goodyear is run by TARDS.

I wouldn't want those psychos shooting at my precious blimp. Maybe a Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon is more in order.

I think it is a great idea, I can see it now sock monkey blimps across america. That would be great for the rose parade;)
