BIG Monkey is cancelled! After little more than a week on the air.
It was going to happen anyway, but then one of the monkey-mates observed a tourist leave his car door unlocked, with a Nintendo DS still inside! All the monkeys except Simeon (a stuffed toy) jumped out of the tree to be the first one to play Pokemon X, leaving me alone.
I was up there another five hours until the cameraman shouted “you can leave the tree now you idiot!”
It’s good to be on the ground again.
The cameramen said the TV Station had enough footage so the show could stretch on for another week or two. Almost as an afterthought, he got me back up the tree to shout abuse at monkeys. Then I threw poo at the ground and we called it “a wrap”.
The only thing I can say about this entire Big Monkey fiasco is this; never trust monkeys when it involves reality TV.
You can trust bunnies, a baited bear, a toilet trained puppy, celebrities in a swimming pool, but never trust a monkey.
