Don't mock my monkey

KAO n. monkey

I thought I had a Tim Burton moment. Were my senses playing tricks on me?

I thought it was a joke when I read the headline that goes Malaysian Scraps Plan to Export Monkeys. Hmm... okay. First, I thought the metaphorical monkeys refer to dissenting Malaysian residents. The ones that march for illusionary justice. The ones that cry foul when the water-gun is deployed. How rude, I say, for an article to refer them/us/you as monkeys.

Ha, ha (in pretend laughing tone). It turned out to be real mung-kee. Apparently we have urban monkey problem. They run rampage in cities, says one report. So far, I have been fortunate cos there ain't no monkey where I work and there ain't no monkey in Kuching either. So where are these pesky monkeys?

Rough guess... Berjaya Times Sq./Pudu/Chow Kit perhaps?

According to the article, our made-in-Malaysia monkeys are not export quality. Our environment Minister confirmed that our monkeys were truly unfit. The minister claimed our monkeys were sick with diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria, hepatitis and AIDS. Malaysia monyet tak boleh punya.

Somehow, I feel strangely mocked by this article.

when i was in tanjung bungah last time, my apt was attacked by a couple of monkeys.

they were shitting and jumping here and there AT THE SAME TIME at the balcony.

luckily, we didnt have the door open and there's no clothes out to dry that day.

crazy.

I thought such incidents were confined to Bako Park, safaris and zoos. I guess I was wrong to think that.

Why not export them to Vietnam or South China? Those qualm-less guys will eat anything that walks. Infected? C'mon are you telling me the monkeys in them countries are whistle clean? After centuries of eating out of dirty wok and poison tainted bamboo chopstick, heck, they're immune!
