Monkeys, Naked Man, and More Monkeys

October 8, 2008

The Tokyo police have been having a hard time of it lately. A monkey has been eluding them (story here) for more than a month, and then yesterday a naked tourist desecrated the moat of the Imperial Palace by skinny-dipping in it!!

In the video the police seem absolutely terrified of this wild-eyed foreigner. And, also, why don’t they have tasers? That would have taken care of it handily. Instead, it was a 2-hour circus. News reports reassure us that, although the emperor was in residence at the palace, he did not see the naked man. 

I would like to point out how much better the monkey is at eluding police. On the other hand, maybe the monkey is just in Tokyo job hunting….
