Ah, that's nothing new. Bugs Bunny did this YEARS ago.

I was wondering why that giraffe was poking around in the jewelry drawer.

Monkeys and naked women on page three? Gee, those British papers have everything!

This is common in some parts of India and other places monkeys roam free with humans. I'd much rather have them take my phone than get attacked. Its only a matter of time until they realize that the things they steal might make a good weapon.

Anybody else reminded of that old episode of Dragnet with the dogs who were trained to snatch purses?

I remember when monkeyjacking didn't mean a monkey stealing your car at gunpoint.

Though maybe this is better. At least cleaner.
