SWAT the Monkey

11:00 AM -- Now they're arming monkeys.

For those of you who missed it, Reuters reported on April 21 that the Mesa, Ariz., Special Weapons and Tactics team has applied for a federal grant to train a capuchin monkey (sneaky little buggers, capuchins) to undertake law enforcement tasks that might require a... well, a monkey, I guess.

You know the kinds of things: banana boat highjackings, terrorism-related feces flinging, accordion use...

Of course, monkeys packing sidearms is nothing new. Several Florida counties already require it.

re: SWAT the Monkey Surely, border patrol is no less taxing than writing for LR.
Maybe Larry can go on assignment as a volunteer minutemonkey on the Arizona Border.

Does Larry keep his brain in a cracked jar like Mojo Jojo?

re: SWAT the Monkey DO NOT compare me to that other monkey, who shall remain nameless for the reason that I do not want to say his name and remind everybody of the name that he has! There is no comparison between my superior intellect and that of another monkey whose intellect is less superior than mine!
