Illegal monkey living on Frosted Flakes bites woman (h/t Drudge)
For some reason it's the Frosted Flakes bit that makes this headline really twisted for me. Was it the Frosted Flakes that put the monkey over the edge? Was it a sugar-rush thing? Are Frosted Flakes considered a monkey-delicacy, and this is the monkey equivalent of saying "living high on the hog", "living in the lap of luxury"? I mean, just what is the import of the Frosted Flakes detail? What are they saying? (And where's a Hobbesian philosopher when we need one to deconstruct this for us ?)
And, call me old-fashioned, but I don't think there's any such thing as an illegal monkey; in my book he's just undocumented. America is the only country he's ever known! (I heard that line this week at the 'Crats' Convention.) And, for all I know, he may be a Canadian undocumented monkey. Where is Obama's Dream Act when it's really needed?
