So, I was reading the new Saxton Hale comic posted on TeamFortress.com and I found this hidden link, which lead me to "The Monkeynaut, Poopy Joe". The page contains a really cool monkey, but also hidden/secret(?) info. about the new upcoming items.
Take a look: http://www.teamfortress.com/war/saxtonhale/poopyjoe.htm
The Giant Sword
The Tiny Bugle - a whistle that summons a monkey to the battlefield, aiding you. (That's what I'm guessing, if the item is added to the game)
A new Rocket Launcher - no information is given about this one, but there's a picture of it
A Gorilla Mask (Possibly a hat)
Fake Hospital Chart, which says "Diabetes" on it
Styrofoam Tombstone - which probably is the unique thing that the winner(s) of the Propaganda Contest will get
Break-Away Noose (no idea what it is)
So, go check it out and post your thoughts.
