Dear Vent Haven Museum,

Happy Halloween!

I have a need for a monkey puppet. Can you help me out? I want to use it to make commentary on social media. I was going to call it “The Social Media Monkey,” but I have to admit that’s not a very catchy name. My friend Anthony Imperioli has a puppet. Her name is Nonna Maria and you have to admit that gives the puppet a bit more realism. Maybe you could help me out with naming my monkey puppet too?

I want a monkey puppet so badly that I can taste it (and we all know how bad puppets taste!). I want to dress it up in little outfits and play with it and maybe chase people around. That would be fun! I also plan to make videos for the internet featuring the “The Social Media Monkey!” These would, of course, be informational and educational and would make the world a better place, so if you can help me out you’ll be helping the world!

I anxiously await your reply.

Dear Mr. Jorgensen,

Thank you for your letter and interest in ventriloquial puppets.  Unfortunately, the museum does not have puppets to sell, so I will not be able to help you out with acquiring a figure.  I can suggest, if you are looking for a basic, beginner puppet, you might find one at your local toy store as they usually carry a variety of animal puppets.  For a more professional figure you might want to do a Google search of ventriloquist puppets and you will find quite a few companies that sell them.

Good luck searching for your perfect figure!  I am sure you will greatly enjoy performing with it and bringing a smile to people’s faces.

I plan to see the Vent Haven Museum some day. I may even take my friend Anthony.
