This is Why I Hate Monkeys

Okay… so some of you might not know this…but I HATE monkeys. I usually list them on things I am afraid of in the form of rabid monkeys, but in general, I do not like monkeys. They creep me out…a lot. Especially when they are dressed up in people clothes. I find it disturbing that their DNA is only 2 matches away from ours but in those 2 little matches all sorts of crazy shit happens.

For instance, did you read this story about the “pet” chimp, Travis, that flipped out and attacked someone savagely? Well if not, here it is along with the frantic 911 call its insane. I guess Travis had been his owners “pet” for many years and just recently started acting strange and aggitated because he was suffering from Lyme Disease (which causes rage in monkeys as a damn symptom). I have so many problems with this story its not even funny.

-no one should have a “pet” monkey. They are wild animals, I dont care what you say. Just like any animal they can turn violent at the drop of a hat.

-Travis grabbed the keys and let himself out of the house…hello!? If he could take the keys and let him out of the house, what other keys could have have grabbed–I wouldnt have been surprised if he took the car keys and drove himself around.

-He attacked the woman unprovoked….and pretty much mauled her. Insane!

-the owner totally catered to him as if he was her child. I think she might have some mental problems. Yes, I understand that he was “all she had left” and if I were in her position…only with a cat, I would probably spoil her by getting her better cat food, there is no way I would make her lobster, steak, or let her borrow my car.

Grr! I just have a strong distaste for monkeys that people have as pets. The little ones with the diapers on, the biggers ones with people clothes on, the ones throwing poop at other monkeys or picking stuff off others and eating it. Gross. I dont know if I’ve gotten this point across….but I really dont like monkeys.

*shudder* I think if I had to choose a “worst way to die” would be to be mauled by a monkey.

    I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m pretty much a doctor (yes, it’s an ongoing joke…).

    I’m thinking that the monkey had a brain tumor. Violent reactions like that happen in humans, too. Even if the person has been super-calm their whole life, a brain tumor pushing on random areas of the brain can cause crazy behavior.

    Be assured that a random monkey in people clothes will not attack you on the street. Honestly, I would be more concerned about random humans.

    I know they wont come attack me.. but I try not to put myself in positions where there is even a possibility.

    Just not a monkey fan. We will not be going to any crazy monkey shows in Vegas…. if you guys go, I will be opting out.

    Monkeys are nasty, vile, disgusting creatures. I’m an animal lover. I detest people who wear fur, am a member of the ASPCA and WWF, but there’s no way I could ever like a monkey. If they all vanished from the earth tomorrow I wouldn’t even bat an eyelash.
