Naked women shopping for shoes with naughty monkeys

A new reality TV show that appeals to everyone

After much discussion I am presenting an idea that initially arose from a bet with my wife that she couldn't come up with a topic for a reality show that everybody would watch.

A new reality TV show with truly universal appeal!

It has shopping and shoes for the women to watch, naked women for the men to watch and naughty monkeys running amok for the kids amusement.

It can't fail to be a success!!!

naughty monkey shoe store http://www.naughtymonkey.com
Likely just online, but it's easier to shop naked online. [popbottle, Mar 02 2014]

       I have to say, in theory, it's perfect...
Detly, Feb 19 2004
  

       This just might get you a promotion to major.
ConsultingDetective, Feb 19 2004
  

       A brilliant show. I'd never miss an episode. I take my hat off to you. Kudos.
bovinemilk, Feb 19 2004
  

       Would the monkeys be clothed?
Fishrat, Feb 20 2004
  

       Nothing here for the male portion of the gay community.
egbert, Feb 20 2004
  

       make it naughty gay monkeys, [egbert], thus also appealing to the bestiaphiles too.
jonthegeologist, Feb 20 2004
  

       I want this.
egads, Feb 20 2004
  

       Top quality!. My sister once mused that the biggest advert hook would be to have a naked woman, small cute child and a fluffy kitten but this idea is simply streets ahead.
gnomethang, Feb 20 2004
  

       I want naked monkeys and then maybe add some blogna and its all good
saure_mond, Feb 20 2004
  

       What sort of presenter would you have? Oh, what am I saying - they're all the same.
Detly, Feb 20 2004
  

       Aha! Graham Norton (see my previous anno).
egbert, Feb 20 2004
  

       [egbert]. I think you will find that Aha was Alan Partridge. Graham Norton is So!. ;-)
gnomethang, Feb 20 2004
  

       Can the monkeys keep the shoes? Will the women wear pasties? Is Justin Timberlake involved?
k_sra, Feb 20 2004
  

       And for the season finale, they trek to San Francisco to marry bride and monkey.
RayfordSteele, Feb 20 2004
  

       dddon''t be silly gnome!
po, Feb 20 2004
  

       "M-O-O-N", that spells ratings!
moPuddin, Feb 20 2004
  

       Perfect....
bkornele, Feb 20 2004
  

       Seems odd to me that lots of people said they'd like it but only one person voted for it (at the time of this anno). I detest reality TV and will not condone the perpetuation of it's evil. Writers are starving on the streets!
harderthanjesus, Nov 28 2004
  

       Votes on this idea, as on about half of the others, were lost in the October 2004 disk crash.
jutta, Nov 28 2004
  

       Oh, that explains the "Have you seen this vote?" thing on a milk carton I purchased recently.
bristolz, Nov 28 2004
  

       Yeah, those monkeys can keep the shoes. It's not like women go shopping because they have nothing to wear.
Pericles, Nov 28 2004
  

       Now if the monkeys were being naughty with naked woman... Really, the important thing is what are those naked woman like. Just being naked doesn't make every woman worth looking at for 20 minutes.
hangingchad, Nov 28 2004
  

       This is the first idea I've ever bunned without actually reading any of the idea description or annos. Good work fella.
etherman, Nov 29 2004
  

       Given the title, I expected this to be a variation of the   

       SEX!
Now that I have your attention...
  

       trick. Well done for doing something with such bizarre material (or rather, well done to your wife). +
stilgar, Nov 30 2004
  

       What? No mention of catchy pop tunes? Throw a naked woman/shoe/naughty monkey music video into each episode please.
Worldgineer, Nov 30 2004
  

       You only have naked women for the hetero men? Why not add some bacon somewhere. Almost all the guys I know love bacon. Mmmmmmm.   

       Except for those health freaks who say bacon is bad.   

       Down with the health freaks! Ignorance is fattening.
macncheesy, Nov 30 2004
  

       To get credit on shoes that they like, the women must endure terrible trials such as eating a tropical bug.
spiritualized, Nov 30 2004
  

       As for the "game" element:   

       The women get to keep the shoes if they can arrange to convince/persuade the naughty monkeys to actually touch the shoes they want. More teasing ensues.   

       Of course, the women should be partially clothed, to pass censorship, and to be more interesting to watch anyway.   

       Bacon too. Yes. They can all eat bacon. Even health nuts like the taste, and they don't get unhealthy from watching it.
sophocles, Nov 30 2004
  

       Ten months have passed and I have yet to see a single episode. There are responsibilities that go with posting an idea this good you know, [captain_ignorant]. Now come on, stop messing around and get on the phone to Fox.
wagster, Dec 15 2004
  

       Fox? Fox? Are you quite mad, [wagster]? If the Americans must make this, then surely it should be commissioned by HBO, so that we can hear the monkeys swearing. They could get Ian McShane to voice the monkeys, as he has shown himself adept in the art of cussing.
calum, Dec 15 2004
  

       No, I've already signed him up to voice the shoes.
wagster, Dec 15 2004
  

       Then how about Tom Baker as bonobo #1? And I think I can get you Penelope Keith. She'll do voicework for scale if she likes the project and this is right up her street.
calum, Dec 15 2004
  

       Yes! A sure fire winner!
wagster, Dec 15 2004
  

       This is an outstanding idea! It must once again be brought forth to be seen! +!
Ichthus, Mar 12 2005
  

       I'm a female and I'd enjoy seeing all three: Shoes, Naked Women, and the Monkeys!
ignorantimmigrant, Mar 12 2005
  

       ...so, when is it on?
XSarenkaX, Oct 13 2005
  

       This sounds like one of Louis Theroux's weird weekends. That said, bun.
rubyminky, Oct 13 2005
  

       //reality TV show that appeals to everyone//   

       But what about people who can't stand reality TV? There should be a quiz show or an improv comedy in there somewhere.
phundug, Oct 13 2005
  

       You know what happens when you start giving typewiters to monkeys - they plagiarize Shakespeare. Besides, there are already enough out-of-work writers in the entertainment biz. Give the monkeys PDAs to attract the techie crowd. Maybe they can figure out Bluetooth.
Canuck, Oct 14 2005
  

       Two years on and no tv series, no book, no DVD, not even a pilot.
And I was going to buy a TV just for this...
methinksnot, Apr 03 2006
  

       The only thing I saw in the title was the words NAKED and TV. But both of those words in the same sentence and I will bun it.
Jscotty, Apr 04 2006
  

       I've written a seven book series on this subject, but no one seems to want to publish it.
notmarkflynn, Apr 04 2006
  

       Send the e-book to Project Gutenberg [nmf].
methinksnot, Apr 04 2006
  

       I'm surprised this doesn't have "[marked for deletion]" on it yet. Ideas for television shows are not halfbakery material.
Size_Mick, Apr 04 2006
  

       // Ideas for television shows are not halfbakery material.// Look, there is a category for "culture: reality tv"... what else would you put here? Besides, this is an old favorite. 56 buns? Hardly your typical MFD material. Why? I don't have a clue. (OK... maybe I have a bit of a clue... naked women... monkeys... seems simple enough.)
zigness, Apr 04 2006
  

       Does this involve bananas?
oniony, Apr 05 2006
  

       We can only hope.
zigness, Apr 05 2006
  

       bananas? You want *more*?
Next thing someone is going to ask that the monkeys be dressed as pirat... Hey, I just got a *great* idea!
methinksnot, Apr 05 2006
  

       Bacon gooood!
Captain_Ignorant, Apr 06 2006
  

       I'll pays ya five pence a week ta look out for the big haired dame w/ the blood red stilettos.
Zimmy, Apr 07 2006
  

       As funny and novel as this is, there seems to be a rather large conflict of interest in this reality show of yours....children watching soft porn? Men watching shopping? women watching monkeys? hmmm. You have enough buns, you can afford a fishbone from me.
shinobi, Apr 09 2006
  

       Porn? I just read it as naked women. The kids won't care as long as there's a monkey. As long as the shoes are varied, interesting, and available for purchase many women would watch. And I don't know any man who wouldn't go shoe shopping if there were naked women present.
Worldgineer, Apr 09 2006
  

       I must be having a [waugsqueke] moment. +70, -8? I cannot remember the last time I saw anything as stupid as this. Oh, wait, 'Tails for all', that was it.
angel, Aug 29 2006
  

       Do you have a problem with the shoes or the monkeys?
Worldgineer, Aug 29 2006
  

       It just strikes me as a waste of pixels. But then, I don't watch 'reality' TV, and fail to understand why anyone else does. Still, each to his own.
angel, Aug 29 2006
  

       doesn't this sound a great deal like john cleese's ad proposal in the monty python sketch "string"?
tcarson, Aug 30 2006
  

       // Except for those health freaks who say bacon is bad.   

       Down with the health freaks! Ignorance is fattening.//   

       I've discovered that at Denny's you can order a vegetarian burger, and have them add bacon to it for like 20 cents. Then you get a receipt that says exactly what you ordered.   

       Show that to your health freaks!
ye_river_xiv, Jul 18 2007
  

       Where's the illustration?
simonj, Nov 03 2007
  

       I think Benny Hill did this
Iridium7, Nov 05 2007
  

       [ignorantimmigrant] created an account on 3/8/2005, posted two ideas beginning with the letter P , annotated on 11 ideas including this one during 2005 - 2006, and dropped out of sight.
normzone, Dec 05 2012
  

       Shouldn't you put that on a graph or a chart or a Venn Diagram or something?
DrBob, Dec 06 2012
  

       But what about the monkeys? And why do I have no recollection of this idea at all? Hoooey.
blissmiss, Dec 07 2012
  

       Looking forward to the videogame spinoff.
pocmloc, Dec 08 2012
  

       I remember an advertisement showcasing feminine hygiene products with a PIP showing football. Best ad ever.
Brian the Painter, Dec 08 2012
  

       The naughty monkeys are almost universally entertaining too....
bs0u0155, Dec 08 2012
  

       My wife likes watching Victoria's Secret lingerie shows and beauty pageants in a weird wholesome way. I like them in a dirty nasty way. Why come up with anything else?
