    Catch me if you can or go away




    WACKY WEB WEEK

    Catch me if you can or go away


    By Kathleen Atkins
    In this episode of an ancient tale we might call (and like to believe is true), "Primates are masters of the universe," a gibbon drives two young tigers from his forest kingdom. When two tiger brothers appear not to recognize gibbon territory, one bold monkey takes them on, using tactics worthy of Shakespearean clown comedy or the Three Stooges. The monkey wins, of course much to the frustration of the tigers.

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    Me thinks that this video was carefully edited to make the young lions appear inept. It is likely that they had fed relatively recently, and we not particularly motivated to dispatch the clown. In addition, that gibbon is incredibly lucky. One false move, and he would have been caught and his neck snapped in the jaws off one off his "playmates".

    At least now they know where to come back when they want a meal.
