well i drink gin monkey drink gin too ...

i'm sorry but i can not stop laughing at the following.

troupes of monkeys are out of control in india's northeast, stealing mobile phones and breaking into homes to steal soft drinks from refrigerators, lawmakers in the region have complained.

"Monkeys are wreaking havoc in my constituency by taking away mobile phones, toothpastes, sipping coke after opening the refrigerators," Hiren Das told Assam state's assembly.

He said the primates were "even slapping women who try to chase them".

here's a link to the full story. i'm just sad the colbert report is off the air. i'd love to see what they'd do to this 'monkey on the lam' story.


here's a better "monkey on the lam" video.

I could not agree more - monkeys are the epitome of evil. That said I would love to see some Youtubage of the little buggers wreaking havoc in random kitchens.

This pretty much made my Sunday.

a friend called me who was having some boy troubles. i told her the story and she nearly peed her pants.

That was hilarious! Oh, I miss Colbert, I haven't been keeping up to date with the show. I love the great dane comment ;)

I wonder if the lock picking raccoons are in line with the squirrels? I think so.
