Of all the things in the article, this one is the most amazing.

Oh...Hong Kong. I thought it said North St.Louis. My bad.
2002-03-31 05:26:51 PM  
Uh oh, you know forced abortions are going to be next.
2002-03-31 05:28:49 PM  
Wouldn't it be easier to just hang condoms in the trees?

Just one more form of oppression from THE MAN.

Puerto Rico has monkey problems too? Another reason to visit...

Ahh, the joys of Mong Kok and Kowloon. Pirated software, cheap computer parts, and electronic devices of every kind imaginable, cheap! I can't wait to go back.

Well, if we don't teach the young monkeys about sex, they'll just learn it off the street, from some dirty old alley cat or something, right?

They going to sterilize Fb-?

Were you serving over there Skwidd? How do they like Americans in general, and service men in particular?
2002-03-31 05:45:57 PM  
They oughta get a clue from Australia and hang condoms in the trees

Someone should just round em all up and dump em somewhere fun, like downtown Boston, hell, the drivers here are bad enough as it is, imagine 50000 monkeys running amok to add to the fun?

I got to stay at the Prince Edward barracks for a few days until my ship (USS Independence) pulled in. That was when the British were still in control. I wasn't stationed there; it's just a port visit for the US Navy, and a damn good one, at that. It's my favorite port, next to Singapore.

I've been to HK a couple of times. I was there before and after the turnover--the only thing that really changed were the flags. Hong Kong is a nice place, very cosmopolitan and modern. The New York of the Orient. Sure, there's a few shiatholes, but you get that with any big city.

Software piracy is rampant in both HK and Singapore. You can get CDs of just about any current game, computer or console, for about $5 American per CD. Hong Kong is also one of many ports from which computer parts made in China are shipped--and somehow, parts end up for sale in the markets. The best place to go is the Mong Kok Computer Center for all of your software and hardware needs. It's not even hidden; it's right on the main street.

I guess I gotta go sometime, thanks for the info Skwidd!
2002-03-31 05:56:05 PM  
So, um, anyone have any more "barrel of monkeys" or "monkeys humping" jokes?

JUST IN: A monkey spokesman had this reaction to sterilizing the monkey population:

I am shocked and amazed that PETA is pleased by something.
2002-03-31 07:31:59 PM  
This has to be the coolest thing I have heard in a long time, hilareous aswell.

"We think that keeping a healthy population of monkeys in Hong Kong is very important," says Wong Che-lok

I totally agree.

If only they would use this method to control human populations.

Catch and release. Let's try it in areas of cities without redeeming social values. Like around suburban malls with yuppies, GAP kids, and SUV drivers.
