Today’s monkey-link is from JunglePete:
CLEARWATER, Fla. – Wildlife officials said a rhesus monkey known to throw feces when mad is on the loose in Tampa Bay. Authorities have been trying to capture the primate since Tuesday afternoon, but it managed to evade a bucket truck and tranquilizer dart.
Gary Morse with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the adult male is thought to have escaped from an unlicensed source. It was last seen in Clearwater.
The monkey is not considered dangerous.
I was going to end with a joke about how JunglePete is also known to throw feces when angry, but that one’s just too easy. And not all that funny. Also, possibly true.
This is how rumors get started.
Today’s post has been cancelled so that we can hang out with jungle Pete and Wife.
Staying here on the beach at 20th high school reunion. Blogging via blackberry too challenging for my uncaffeinated self this morning.
I haven’t seen so much as a picture of John McCain in 24 hours.I feel better already.
Where is junglepete with my coffee?
He’s going to insist he should be let off the hook because he’s been out risking his life in the fakahatchee, but damnit man, I need coffee! And wifi. And maybe a banana-nut muffin, as long as you’re out…
“Florida to Buy Sugar Maker in Bid to Restore Everglades.”
I’m deeply curious to hear what JunglePete has to say about this. He hasn’t blogged about it yet, I think he’s busy photoshopping my head onto this image. Who the hell left him in charge of the reunion book in the first place? I mean, er, Pete is going to do a swell job on the reunion book…
Our gatorland plans fell through last night, now we’re off to visit the manatees instead.
While we’re doing that, you should read this article JunglePete sent me which explains that monkeys will pay for sex.
