Fuzzy blue monkeys (for Nicole)

Hey Nicole,

"Fuzzy blue monkeys" in Scottish Gaelic would be "muncaidhean gorma molach".
Yes, "muncaidh" is a very obvious English loan, but then monkeys, sadly, are
not native to the Highlands and Western Isles of Scotland. And "molach" is
more like "hairy", "wooly, "shaggy", but it's the closest I could think of.
