Got a Monkey On Your Back?

Monkeys, err, chimpanzees, have received a bad rap today; a surly crew in Sierra Leone attacked and killed a taxi driver transporting a car full of Americans. At least one person was injured so badly that the poor soul had to have his arm amputated. The attack has caused so much terror that the US Embassy has warned Americans to stay clear of the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary, from where the renegades escaped.

Are these chimps part of a terrorist plot against America? Is this the beginning of "Planet of the Apes" becoming a reality? OK, so neither of these are realistic (although, over a bottle of wine, I'd like to discuss my interpretation of "Planet of the Apes" and statement on society).

Career Builder has made it easy for us to control some monkeys with their Monk-e-mail. Check it out and give your friends a chuckle (unless they're Maimouphobic).
