I'll say it: It's time someone did something about the Monkeys. Over the last two years they have established a clear cut pattern of terror & harassment in countries ranging from Eastern India, Jakarta, Tokyo, Sri Lanka or New Dehli, and the fact remains that it's only a matter of time before these crazed foreign monkeys make their way to places I could actually find on a map, or possibly even America, (possibly in this guy's pants). When they come, and they will, will our leaders protect us from their savage rampage? Or is it too late - are they already among us?!?

I like the Japanese solution. They've turned a nuisance into opportunity. I would be proud to have "monkey chaser" on my resume.

I know how this ends. Those damn dirty apes better keep their filthy paws off the Statue of Liberty or there'll be hell to pay.

In my country, we elect monkeys to public office.

Robert Brady, now there's a guy with monkey problems.

Scroll down to July 12 on his main page. "This morning I was up when it was still dark, and just in the first predawn light was making tea when I glanced out the window and saw a young simian strolling into my garden as though he owned the place, pointedly avoiding the Thai Dragons, jalapenos and tabascos and heading straight for the green beans..."

In Bali, my tour guide said he'd been attacked by a monkey, which explained why he appeared to be in mortal fear as we walked (in his case, quickly) through the "Monkey Forest..."

Perhaps the monkeys hate freedom, too.

I'm left absolutely speechless. I can't find the words to express my feelings about this terrible threat, and my worries about what it's limits might be. This lurking, curly tailed menace: who knows when it will strike next? Can we even conceive of the next development in their fiendish scheme? I think not. Yes, it's all horrifyingly true:

I don't know what to say the monkeys won't do.

Well, I for one...

It's spelt "New Delhi."

Sorry, it might have been a genuine typo, but when you see most of the West spell Gandhi as Ghandi, it gets on your nerves a bit.

Look, I'm smiling again. :)

Over the last two years

Two years? Bah. Meanwhile, here in the United States we enter our ninth year of low-level monkey skirmishes. Once the Florida escapees reach a self-sustaining critical mass... no, it's too horrible for words!
