Not unless they're really strong swimmers they're not.

Monkeys are just the us that didn't become US. If they take over the planet, we deserve it.

I love this headline more than words can adequately say.

Here's a +1, subby. Use that to get back to Clarksville.

Your post is full of words that never were true, spoken to help nobody but you.

That's nothing. A few years ago monkeys killed the mayor of New Delhi by shoving him off a balcony.

Bravo, Subby!

They just want to be free. Like the bluebirds flying by me, the waves out on the blue sea.

Hope they come drivin' that custom GTO ragtop!

Obviously godless communist terrorists.

There are two factors at work here. Sadly, the monkeys' habitat is being nibbled away, as forests are cleared and turned into sweet potato gardens and rice fields. This means competition for space (same problem with marauding elephants in Sumatra).

Problem: population pressure. Sound familiar?Java was something of a primeval paradise with two or three million inhabitants. With eighty million living cheek by jowl, not so much.

The second factor is that some people (dumb tourists mostly) feed wild monkeys and try to see them as cute pets. The primates lose their natural fear and aversion to humans, and then become aggressive. A troop will barge into a tourist's cabin and ransack it, tearing everything up, stealing food and cameras, whatever, and if you try and stop them they bite you. No easy answer here.

In this particular case, one suspects the local village has squatted on what was originally Monkeyville, and the locals are pissed about it.

No problem like this in Sumatra: they just net them and eat them. The babies are sold in the Jakarta bird market, like slaves in the good old days. I have had several given to me by local people, when they got big and mean.

If you travel into simian territory and want the locals to keep their distance, there's a simple tactic: carry along a rubber snake, and wave it menacingly. They'll squeal and chatter, then scatter.

Why, oh why, didn't they listen to Bucky Katt? He tried to warn them!
 
2013-01-31 06:56:37 AM
No, they won't be going beyond that village, subby. It's not their stepping stone.
 
2013-01-31 07:15:03 AM
I can see everyone is getting pretty torqued about this.

Let's see, how to play this?

Was it a mob of 12 monkeys?
or,
I live in  Cedar Creek, California, so I don't have to worry about monkeys.

After all these years I only recently realized that Last Train to Clarksville is about some poor dumb bastard shipping out to Vietnam. It's such a catchy song that I never realized how depressing it actually is.

 And subby? You're awesome.

oh my god... I'd never realized that hipsters are just dressing like The Monkeys. Or... were the Monkeys just the ORIGINAL hipsters? Dressing like hipsters before there were hipsters?

It's unclear why the monkeys, which are usually afraid of humans and flee when they hear human voices

Rabies?
