Drunk monkey armed with kitchen knife downs glass of rum and attacks bar goers


Heard the one about a monkey walking into a bar, downing a glass of rum, arming itself with a blade and threatening the customers?

Too bad, because this ridiculous scenario just took place in Brazil, resulting in fire brigade turning up.

Responding to the scene, officials say they were called to a bar earlier this month after a report was received of a drunk and lairy primate chasing men around with a kitchen knife. All the staff’s own doing apparently…

"It was a bar staff oversight that ended with the monkey drinking some rum and taking the knife," said Lt. Col. Saul Laurentino of the local fire department.

Onlookers present also told reporters that while the animal was eager to chase men with the weapon, it left the women alone. Who’s to say it wasn’t defending some fair maiden’s honour?

Culminating in a rooftop standoff (surely someone needs to make a movie about this), quick-thinking locals were on hand to capture footage of the monkey using the kitchen knife to scratch at the bar's roof. Happily, he didn't take a hostage and nobody was hurt.

Bet he felt like an idiot when his hangover kicked in the next day.
