I definitely have a 2012 Shinn Monk II. However, I see the Shinn Monk Forever also listed as 2012.
When was the design changed to the Forever?

The Joke is just simply a really, really fantastic board - as already mentioned the only thing that may put some people off is that it is loose and skatey compared to most other boards. The lift from the joke is concave and convex bottom so it planes really well and gives a smooth ride in horrible chop plus a soft cushy landing due to the 'false' rocker that is created by the convex bubble on the bottom of the board. You can land it sideways if needs be!
I found the Monk to be stiff hard work in chop, lots of spray in the face, aggravated my knees and nothing special. I know there is a lot of love for it out there but I just did not get it....
Message really is just try both if you can....
For me it would be the Joke all day every day!
