Holy crap, there is a REAL Monkey Island!? Have you been? It looks really small on that map. The satellite image shows nothing.

We once had a pretty cool "Monkey Island" bar that was on a sandbank in the middle of the river that flows through Duesseldorf.

No, never been. Also, there are no native Land Mammals in NZ, so no idea how it was named. It probably looks like a Monkey or something.

Someone at Mojo has been there, as I've seen a photo of them pointing at the Road Sign.

Also, maybe try google earth for a better look.

Oh, here are some photos.

New Zealand has some sort of MI conspiracy going on...

Also Rhys Darby (NEW ZEALAND comedian!!!!!!!11) plays a guy called Murray in the Flight of the Conchords TV show.
COINCIDENCE?!


Yeah.

There's an actual Monkey Island in Sanya, China.

That Melee Town looks almost spot on, amazing.

And a Monkey Island isn't a real Monkey Island without a giant monkeyhead.

And thatīs not all:
http://www.svenheidel.de/mi-inside/sarushim.php

Translate Sarushima into English and you get: Monkey Island.



This all could be the secret of MI! Itīs not in the Carabbean.

Edit: But think of the secret: This could also be too easy...

I wonder if Ron Gilbert or the people at Telltale know about these places. Could make for a good inside reference in the next episode of TMI.
