Monday’s Monkeys #4

Today’s star monkey is Cheeky.  Original, I know, but I’ve seen the birth certificate and I’m blaming the parents.

Spying a yoghurt drink on the table, next to the bottle of cleaning detergent, Cheeky wisely opted to steal the drink.

Staring right at the camera, testing my reaction (I wasn’t exactly going to wrestle it out of his viciously cute hands), he made a quick getaway out of the apartment onto the balcony.

Can you guess what happens next?  Whoah.  Cheeky gets a little bit of company.  Though you’ve gotta admit, he doesn’t look too worried; that’s one fearless monkey focusing on his stolen goods.

Prepare yourselves, but sad news is coming Cheeky’s way … sniff.

As he moves it to inspect the contents, Cheeky is overcome with a sense of loss.  ‘The bottle is empty!’ he cries, throwing it on the ground in a monkey fit.

 

 

 

 

Feeling a bit miffed, he strolls off in search of more food, wishing he’d picked up the bottle of cleaning detergent instead.
