It’s like something out of 12 Monkeys!

I loved that movie. From the BBC (via BoingBoing):

Delhi suffers from a serious monkey menace, with scores of animals seen across the city, particularly near top government offices.

The monkeys who have moved into residential areas and official enclaves due to Delhi’s shrinking forests,[*] are said to have become a ‘security threat’.

Last year, the ministry of defence found some of its top secret documents scattered all over the place one morning.

It was blamed on the many rhesus monkeys which flock around the colonial-era building.

The prime minister’s office, which is situated in the same block, is also within reach.

A cabinet minister couldn’t enter his official bungalow for months because the monkeys wouldn’t let any body enter the house.

The presidential palace too has been targeted and staff their have been forced to employ a dark-faced langur monkey to scare away the rhesus monkeys.

Now all they need is Brad Pitt jumping around and giving crazy speeches :)

(You know what other movie this reminds me of? Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls. Ugh.)

* Is it okay, in British English, to place a comma after the subject of a sentence? ;P
