Friday Funny: Monkey Headed Southbound

Commuters on Ireland's N11 expressway were surprised to find that the cause of a massive traffic jam was a monkey on the loose.

"AA Roadwatch confirmed that it received a call to its traffic hotline at 8.15am from a member of the public reporting that there was a monkey on the southbound carriageway of the N11 at Kilmacanogue.

"By 8.35am we found out there was a place nearby that keeps monkeys, so we thought it could be true," a spokeswoman said.

"By 8.45am the gardaí in Bray confirmed there was a monkey on the road but he was caught, caged and cleared by 9am."

It later emerged the monkey, a capuchin named "Gina", had escaped from her home in a nearby aviary where she lives with eight others, including tamarinds, squirrel monkeys and her sibling capuchin."
