As conducive to giggling
as fresh, hot bread (with butter) is to eating
. You just can't help it.
A feel-good moment or situation. The laughter equivalent of Campbell Soup's mmm mmm good
This definition really only works if you like freshly baked bread. But then, who doesn't?

entries that look like they belong on Wikipedia
. We're talking page-long "definitions" that could be printed off and turned in for credit at many institutions of higher education.

The latest internet craze.
Taking from "the new black
," (a phrase originally meaning "the latest, hottest trend in fashion"), the new monkey
works on the idea that for several years now monkeys
have pervaded every corner of the internet--as mascot, icon, part of a slogan, or in some other aspect.
"The new monkey," therefore, would be the next big thing.
Usage note: "The new monkey" refers to things that are in some way parallel to monkeys. Thus, bananaphones could be "the new monkey," but the bananaphone
flash movie could not.
For this reason (lack of a parallel), All Your Base
is not the new monkey. Neither are monkeys the new AYB
. (I suppose it could be argued that the Banaphone flash movie is the new AYB, but we all know that's simply not the case.)
Pete: Wow, would you look at this site? Looks like ninjas

Erik: What? No way, dude. Pirates
are the new monkey.
