Why do people hate the “poor baby monkeys”?

What drives seemingly ordinary, well-adjusted members of our society to partake in sadistic behavior?

That’s the common question I found myself wondering all over again when I discovered “MonkeyHateGate“. Deep in the bowels of YouTube is a community dedicated to a shared hatred of… baby monkeys.

Who are these people, and why do they hate baby monkeys? Seriously, they’re adorable. Right? Please don’t tell me you hate baby monkeys too. Uh oh. I hope we’re not going to have a problem here.

Bubsy Bobcat takes us to our breaking point in The Bubsathon

What is it about Bubsy that inspires such visceral rage in all of us? Well, nearly all of us. Okay, what is it about Bubsy that inspires such visceral rage in everyone except for the people who are afflicted with deep, passionate love?

We did not solve this mystery over the course of these videos – Bubsy may have much to say, but he does not share his secrets. You can still watch our playthrough of every classic Bubsy game, wherein we slowly suffer from a neurotic breakdown.

Fun fact: The ‘Bubsathon’ was titled such because it was originally going to be a playthrough done in one sitting. That did not happen. The title remains, because even with a week’s wait between, by the end of this we had experienced more pain than any marathon runner.

If your Bubs-lust has not been sated, we have a podcast episode about Bubsy on our Patreon that nearly killed us to record. You can pledge as little as $1 a month to die too.
