Better grab something or make sure you are sitting down when you read this because this is one of those “no way” type of news stories, but as a celebrated journalist (in my own head, at least), I can tell you, this has been 100% verified. So much so, that I can report it as actual news. To sum it up, read above headline. Monkeys in Indonesia have formed a sort of Mafia and steal people’s stuff, only to make them give them (of all things) a cracker to get their stuff back. Pretty genius, actually.
It is just the kind of thing that needs to be seen to be believed! I will spare you the lengthy written monologue about a story that essentially tells itself via its title.
So there you have it. And wait, there’s more!
What the hell did I just watch? I am pretty sure the above video is not at all related, but damn if that monkey doesn’t fit all the requirements for the above mentioned monkey mafia. Hell, he even has a posse’.
Feels like we are only a few years away from this movie being a documentary at this point:
So remember, if you travel to exotic locals like Indonesia, don’t worry about the humans. It is the monkeys that will steal your shit and really f*ck with you. But in the end, a cracker i s a small price to pay to get your belongings back and it makes for one helluva vacation story when you get home!
