Very nice Joe!
Those monkeys are bastards aren't they!!Once I canoed 16 miles and went on a hike on an empty stomach cuz' one stole my lunch.Another time in Villahermosa ,Mx.,I bought an orange to give to one ,I handed it to him ,he took it real calmly then looked me dead in the eye with an expression that conveyed " what the fuck is this" then he got all wild and jumped on a vendors cart and stole abag of chicharrones climbed a wall and ate.
Worst is Isla los Changos, lago Catemoco, Veracruz, the s o bs are like
pirates the jump in the tour boats and steal all kinds of shit,they will bite.
One last monkey tail,before hurricane Andrew there was a place in Miami called monkey jungle,where the humans were in caged walkways and the monkeys are in a bigger cage surrounding it,you buy peanuts and raisins put in a little bowl on a string the monkeys hoist em ' up,we were blowin' joints with monkeys and messin' with em',one outsmarted my friend Gary,Gary tries to hand him a nut the monkey acts receptive then lightening quick reaches thru and steals the whole bag. My other friend Buzzy acted like he was a baboon scheming on the female baboon in a round cage of metal bars, the male baboon got real pissed started baring his teeth and grabbed this dodgeball type ball and raced around in circles dragging the ball violently against the bars ,as if to say 'this is what i'll do to your head.F'n monkeys.
