The google is your friend. It is a small stuffed monkey with elastic legs. You put you fingers in small pockets sewn into the arms, pull back the legs like a slingshot, and shoot it across the room. They scream like a banshee.
Woot includes them in their Bag OF Crap once in a while like Red Devil said, but BOC's are few and far between, plus hard to score on unless you shop at midnight. I feel $5 is a fair price.

If you look closely, you can see the rubber band inside the arm. They shoot across the room, making a horrid shrieking noise that scares the crap out of my dogs. And they have a cape, with a hood.

I haven't seen one with the elastic but I know that a lot of Greyhounds absolutely love these toys.

They were also a prize for the 2010 Puzzle Decathlon and will most likely be a prize for the 2012 version as well (if I don't make mine into travel bugs first).
