Monday’s Monkeys #6

So let me introduce you to today’s rascal, The Tourist Monkey.

Now, The Tourist Monkey is no average monkey.  A reader, an educator, a philosopher and ultimately, a thief and an eater.

Strolling up the stairs towards the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur isn’t as easy as it sounds.  Firstly, it’s no stroll, it’s more heaving yourself up.  Secondly, there are a lot of monkeys ready to grab anything from your hand to try to eat it.

Here is a prime example of The Tourist Monkey, perched on a safe post high above the humans having just stolen a map from an unsuspecting human.  I think he’s trying to work out how to get from the Batu Caves to the Petronas Towers (turn it over, monkey!).

Unable to find the information The Tourist Monkey so desperately seeks, he goes in for a closer look.

The Tourist Monkey, unable to find the real use of the map, decides to take a bite.

The flavour and texture being unappealing, The Tourist Monkey starts philosophising on life, seeking inspiration of what to do with the map.

He takes another look.

He finds the subway map, but realises it’s of no use and thinks ah, screw it, I’ll just gobble it all up.
