The Man in the Yellow Hat was in utter shock while appearing before a Minneapolis-St. Paul judge in connection with his pet monkey's behavior in an airport restroom.
"First of all, Mr. Hat, possession of an exotic species is against the law here," said the judge.
"That your monkey was attempting to elicit sex acts from the undercover officer is represensible," he continued.
"What did you as an animal trainer expect would happen when your pet made explicit sexual advances toward the law enforcement official?" the judge asked.
Mr. Hat denied any culpability in his primate's actions, stating that George was just acting out normal courtship behaviors due to hormonal predilections.
"My monkey is not a sexual deviant," apologized Mr. Hat. "He's just a horny monkey I shouldn't be giving such a long leash."
