Authorities of varying descriptions here in the UK have been alarmed to note an unprecedented rise in Monkey related activity. They told us that they aren't quite sure what it is about monkeys, or why they seem to have infiltrated the national psyche as they have.
They went on to explain that for some mysterious reason monkeys have been cropping up all over the place, particularly on internet spoof websites where the most popular illustration for a story appears to be a monkey.
Monkeys are now more popular than rabbits and kittens and chickens, which is worrying. Doctor Victor Nicholas, late of Plum Coulee (hope I got that right) told us:
"It's all well and good for the general population to have a fixation on monkeys. But we must ensure that we don't get branches of Kentucky Fried Monkey on the nation's high streets. Monkey meat just tastes fucking awful. The public would be much better served with a nice bit of roast lamb. With new potatoes. Yum yum."
At which point we decided to wonder what the hell we were doing and went off to do something else instead.
More when we figure out what day it is.
