Japan Under Siege By Monkeys

The Summer of Suck-yeah, that's what I've settled on-is an international phenomenon, particularly in Japan, where rampaging monkeys have injured dozens of people. "[I]n Mishima and Susono cities near the Japan Alps in Hakone this week, residents have been attacked, bitten and scratched by what seems to be a team of macaques. On one day alone, August 25, some 15 people in Susono were injured."

You fuckers should be paying me.

You should at least get a #COMING PRIMATE WARS tag.

Seconded. Where's my mothafuckin tag, Balk?

Oh, please. You self-centered puppet. Look at the kind of year #CLEVELAND has had. #CLEVELAND has lost everything–even suffering the ignobility of Akron receiving a tag–and you are griping about your monkeys?

I can see this as being the first direct war-to-photobook deal.

I don't like the anti-monkey tone this site is developing. Consider this the first shot fired in defense of my fine simian friends.

STC: Am I allowed to enjoy that picture, or is the person dying in a flood?

I needed a new nightmare. Thank you.

I don't know why this is a quicklink and not a goddamn full-page photo spread. Maybe a slideshow?

that was my birthday!

Two weeks ago a wild monkey was caught with tranquilizer darts in downtown Tokyo

The monkey claimed they belonged to a friend.

I'm very sorry to be pedantic, but Cyndi Lauper did not write "Monkeys Change Everything."

And I'm very sorry once again, but I vote for "Summer of Scorch." Or Scotch. Which burns more?

And I'm very sorry.
