Attack of the Monkeys

I’ve blogged this elsewhere, but it’s too Pingworthy to pass up.

In India, a farmer got his airgun and shot near a monkey in attempt to get her out of a tree. Unfortunately, his aim was off and he shot and killed the monkey, who was nursing her child at the time. After the police arrested the man for shooting a protected species, they tried to get the baby monkey, but he wouldn’t let go of his mother. So, the police had to bring them into the police station until they figured out what to do.

As they all sat in the police station, a posse of 30 monkeys converged on the station, gathering outside and on the roof. A couple of them snuck into the station and “quietly [took] the baby away with them.”

Makes it seem kind of silly to have monkeys caged up zoos after hearing a story like this, doesn’t it?

"I was just trying to scare it away from the trees and the gun went off."

What the hell kind of moronic, lame ass excuse is that? How about, "I'm not properly trained to handle a firearm, therefore, I accidentally shot and killed a little monkey." Or, "The monkey was in the tree, and I shot it a little harder than I wanted to." Or how 'bout "I'm old enough to own a gun, but I'm not mature enough to take responsibility for killing this here monkey." I'm tired. These morons wear me out.

Peter Gabriel's asserts that I must shock the monkey seem ridiculous in light on this story.

"The monkeys behaved in an exemplary fashion and impressed us with their show of solidarity. Human beings have a lot to learn from them."

Uh, aren't we supposedly EVOLVED from monkeys? And that's only if you believe that evolution shit. ha ha! ;) Everybody knows that we're just alien experiments gone bad.

What was the chance that the monkeys would be punished for their actions? It would only compound the misery if someone were to spank the monkeys.

Steve: I'm glad you made that joke before everyone started wondering why I hadn't.

"Uh, aren't we supposedly EVOLVED from monkeys?"

No. Monkeys, apes and humans all evolved from the same creature, but that creature no longer exists.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
