Yes, there's an entire town of monkeys drinking juice boxes
In most American cities, the only wildlife you have to contend with are rats, pigeons, and, unless you live in Detroit, an occasional wild dog. Not so in Lopburi, a small Thai city northwest of Bangkok that's pretty much been taken over by a horde of rambunctious monkeys. They're like separatist rebels. Seriously, see for yourself.
Lopburi's monkeys are a type of Macaque, the second most common primates in the world (after humans, of course). They roam the city's streets uninhibited and have been known to crap on people from above before, apparently, stealing their smokes.
Even though the furry troublemakers are free to wander about the city, they mainly hang out (in more ways then one, it would seem) around Prang Sam Yot, a Khmer temple in the center of town. Look at this guy, just throwing it out there. #swagger
...and my PRECIOUSSS!! This little Sméagol-esque fella looks like he's been drinking all night, which is a distinct possibility considering these crazy dudes guzzle everything in sight.
No joke, but throughout Lopburi there are actually signs warning tourists about purse-snatching monkeys in search of food. As a result, it's become official practice to feed the hooligans regularly in order to keep incidents down -- there's even a Monkey Banquet that's been held annually since 1989.
Apparently, one of the Macaques is having a cookout. Yes, they enjoy a good corn on the cob as much as we do.
Just a monkey on a roof drinking a juice box. It's almost as if this guy thinks he's people!
While this might seem like just another average monkey picnic, think again; those Sunny Ds (or is it Orangu…Tang?) were likely stolen from a nearby grocery store. Really, is there anything funnier than animals doing human things?
Like stealing hubcaps and car wheels. They've even got a lookout -- though, admittedly, he seems a bit disinterested.
And this is what happens when you tag the wrong monkey to keep an eye out for the fuzz. The law's the law, and tire-stealing primates are just as likely to end up in the pokey as us. Awwwww...
