Even punkeys dress up! Beware:

As this picture reveals, punkeys have been trying to enter human society for a least 100 years. From shorpy.com:

1909. Consul Peter smoking. Peter, famous monkey of the Parisian music halls, was an act at Oscar Hammersteins Paradise Roof Garden in New York. As the subject of Consul Crosses the Atlantic, he was also perhaps the first chimp movie star. George Grantham Bain Collection glass negative.

What is the punkeys’ latest tactic? Become an economic drain to humans! Apparently in Plant City, FL (Occupied Territory) escaped monkeys are stealing feed and killing tractor batteries. From Tampa Bay Online:

Ray Clark first noticed corn vanishing at an alarming rate from deer feeders on his 600-acre Polk County ranch.

Then he discovered someone – or some thing – tampered with the switches and knobs on his tractors, draining the batteries on both.

The tiny footprints helped unravel the mystery. The remaining patas monkeys that escaped from nearby Safari Wild in April have turned to his property for a refuge from trappers, a reliable source of food and, it appears, a playground. (more…)

Video evidence that Punkeys are mobilizing and preparing for a ground assault. Here is the recon video:

And segways are not easy to ride as this picture of the president shows:

Conclusion: Punkeys may be smart enough to become president!!!

The punkeys are testing our infrastructure again! This time in Nelspruit, South Africa (Occupied Territory). From News24.com:

A curious wild monkey caused a meltdown at a major electricity transformer in Nelspruit in Mpumalanga, plunging the 2010 host city into darkness for two hours.

Municipal spokesperson Bessie Pienaar said on Tuesday that the adult Vervet monkey inadvertently managed to short-circuit the transformer last week Thursday, burning out key circuits and severely damaging the electricity interchange.

“As a result, Nelspruit experienced a city-wide electricity interruption due to transformer failure,” said Pienaar. (more…)

This poor disillusioned monkey owner is going to jail for his pet marmoset. Is this heroic or part of the monkeys menace plan to place as many people in prison, out of the way, for their attack? You decide. From CityNews:

Never get in the way of a man and his monkey. That seems to be the lesson one man was trying to teach the justice system in the U.S.

But despite his best efforts, it didn’t quite work.

When David Grigorian, a 43-year-old resident from Van Nuys, California, got a marmoset monkey as a pet a few years back, he quickly fell in love with the creature. But he didn’t have a permit for the exotic animal and a court ordered him to get rid of it.

The controversy began last January when cops investigated Grigorian on an unrelated matter. After arriving at his home, they found the animal but not the permits he needed to keep it. He was ordered to get rid of it and promised he would.

A face only a punkey could love!

What a week of recruiting it has been for punkeydom. First tigers, now dogs, though the dog’s name is Tiger Cup. Coincidence? I think not! From Metro.co.uk:
