Monkey Business: "The monkey urinated on him and disappeared."


Since 2009, Yates estimates that he has gone after the animal on roughly 100 different occasions. The monkey was his white whale.
He claimed to have darted it at least a dozen times, steadily upping the tranquilizer dosage, to no avail. The animal is too wily — it retreats into the woods and sleeps off the drug. A few times, the monkey stared Yates right in the eye and pulled the dart out. -- American Monkey Freedom - Chris Piascik

Nicole Kidman could probably bring the monkey in.

That monkey is a model for the rest of us. How long before we have dart-shooting drones harassing us, especially if we're caught with a Big Gulp or a salt shaker, pocketbook edition of the Constitution, or, even worse, a Bible?

Where do we go hide to sleep it off?

When that day comes, artists like ol' Chris will be the ones cheering on our hunters. Read his website for proof.

Heh. While checking out the website, I came across this from some gvanderleun guy:

"Rest assured I listened to Evil Empire while drawing this." We rest assured that both you and Morello are indeed full of rage, hate and shit.

Yates wouldn't have this problem if he used a .44 magnum with hollow points instead of a tranquilizer dart. I hate monkeys.

They need to find a retired game warden. I'd focus on the ones that worked alone, played by their own rules. Bring him back "for one last mission." Throw in a few car chases, lots of explosions, and bitter tales of divorce and drinking, etc. They could call it One More Damn Hollywood Movie." They've made this movie about 300 times with every star except Betty White as the officer. They've only got to branch out into new species. And then, 3-D.

I could have totally caught that monkey. Your rite. Thanks for being a fan.
