When monkeys attack

When monkeys attack

Postby narcoleptish » Mon Feb 04, 2013 9:26 am

Really I'm just sick of seeing the same three tired subjects when I click on Headlines.

http://abcnews.go.com/International/wir ... a-18351469

A mob of wild monkeys has gone on a rampage in a village in eastern Indonesia, entering houses and attacking residents. Seven people were injured, including one who is in critical condition.

Proof positive: The only thing that stops a monkey on a rampage is a law-abiding monkey with a gun.

I love the way the ape dances around triumphantly at the end. He's been watching.

Hope someone was able to arrange a trade for, say, some bananas.

No way it's fake. It's another cell of the Animal Self-Liberation Front, in which animals use various tools to liberate themselves and their kin:

It's done pretty well, but notice how no dirt is kicked up when the ground is sprayed? There are a few other clues as well.... "20th Century Fox Research Library?" Yeah, it was made to promote one of the Planet of the Apes movies.

I am just happy y'all knew that the chimp was an ape, not a monkey.
