Yes, but dammit, it was MUnkey NutZ ... (not in caps but to emphasize the spelling). We (they) would never have used something so childish as Monkey Nuts. However, of course, we would use the far more unique and distinguished "Munkey Nutz" - don't make me bring in pictures of the whiteboard (NO, I wouldn't do it even if I had them, so don't ask ;). Sometimes, just sometimes, spelling IS important.
