The Sunday Funnies

His dreams were too big for that place. So why, oh why, did they capture him and take him back.

A spider monkey new to the [Michigan City, Ind.] Washington Park Zoo used a garden hose to scale the walls of a moat and make a break for freedom. Workers were cleaning the moat at the time Wednesday. Zoo Director Johnny Martinez says workers had figured the monkeys would remain inside their enclosure during the cleaning even though the moat was empty of water. However, one monkey made it past the moat, grabbed the hose and jumped onto the roof of a water filtration plant.
The zoo staff recaptured the adventurous monkey at a nearby boat dealership, where they found it perched atop a white and blue speedboat.




More of the Sunday reading recap tomorrow. Word.
