This Is Completely Awesome

An alert and astute mockdocker, knowing my love for monkeys, sent me this article, about New Delhi using TRAINED MONKEYS to  patrol the grounds during a sporting event.  The monkey’s job assignment?  To scare away smaller, stray monkeys.

The trained monkeys will be leashed and accompanied by trainers, and will be rented out by the organizers of the event.

Here’s what they look like on the job:

You realize what would happen if this idea took off in the US, right?  UNIONS WOULD ORGANIZE THEM.  And then they’d be paid more than any of us, with full pensions.

    They better watch out–smaller monkeys are CRAFTY. They will team up with the pigs and ride backwards RIGHT PAST these guard monkeys.

    The monkeys would do more work than some of the union employees.

    Not to be picky, but it’s not “a sporting event” – it’s the Commonwealth games. I know it’s not a big deal south of the border, since you folks left the Commonwealth and all, but (short of the Olympics) it is one of the larger sporting events in the world today.

    Still technically a sporting event.
