Fez Monkeys

I don't think there's anything funnier than a monkey wearing a fez. I even have a fez monkey bobble head doll in my car. However, there's nothing funny about a monkey chained to a barrel organ for the purposes for collecting money. Tragedy makes the best comedy however. It's a sight you don't see much in the US these days. Apparently in Thailand, they have trained monkeys to sell drugs. They've even been trained to recognize bank notes and attack you if you don't pay them enough. Personally I'll stick to drinking monkey-picked tea.

Ha ha love this one.

I think I got a bigger kick out of the organ grinder's (sounds like that could be a horror movie killer) tiny hat on his big Charlie Brown head than the monkey's.

Ha! Thanks Cracker. That would indeed make an excellent B-movie. I see a Hurdy Gurdy-wearing John Turturro as the killer although the fat head costume might pose some problems in the action scenes.
