    Ever increasing monkey sizes

    So what happens then the langur monkeys run amok? Find larger and more ferocious species and so on until we end up with King Kong harassing the inhabitants of Delhi.

    Perhaps we could have that face-off with the Godzilla they're genetically engineering in Tokyo...

    No need. The species known as Homo Sapiens is easily found everywhere in great numbers.

    Who's back yard is it anyway?

    Considering the fact that the monkeys were there first, it is not so much a case of a monkey being in your back yard as you being in the monkey's front yard.

    Sounds like a great plan

    So to combat the problem of a monkey invasion, they're training them to fight?

    Nope, can't see aproblem there...

    heathen snipers

    What they need are filthy atheists or some kind of heathen who don't hold such beliefs and have them armed as night-time knacker men. That way they could perform the removal tasks without those of a delicate nature being alerted to the monkey apocalypse at their doorstep. They could then sell them back to the locals in pies or kebabs, thus completing the holy circle of life.

    American vs British English problem.

    The First Floor in America is known as the Ground Floor in Britain. Bear that in mind when you visit here Curtis or you'll have to walk down the stairs when the lift (elevator) stops on the first floor when you are trying to get to the ground :-)

    The First Floor in America is known as the Ground Floor

    first floor is not the first

    floor the sky is down etc you are supposed to know all this. Also journalists think slipping and falling off a balcony whilst trying to shoo away monkeys means they killed him instead of his just being clumsy. I have been seeing this headline for days editors are a bunch of complete fucktards for running it as news.

    To whom it may concern in Delhi INDJA,

    (or what ever you people call it these days):

    Can we possibly book your performing monkeys for a for an American Congressional and White House gig/tour?

    We have lots of balconies available, mostly 2nd floor or higher, and lots of dance wax!

    HELP!
