Monkeys Steal Covid-19 Samples from Lab Worker in India

Coast to Coast:
ByTim Binnall

Reminiscent of the beginnings of an apocalyptic science fiction film, a troop of monkeys in India attacked a lab worker and made off with blood samples from COVID-19 patients. The very strange incident reportedly occurred at a medical college in the city of Meerut on Thursday when a lab technician was walking outside the facility and encountered the troublesome creatures. Presumably suspecting that he was carrying something that they could eat, the monkeys descended upon the unfortunate individual and snatched three samples containing the virus. more

  1. “..an official with the college assured the public that, to date, no evidence has emerged to indicate that monkeys can get the coronavirus.”

    Yea, they just roll you and take it.
    Were the pilfering primates booked or just cited and released with no bail?

  2. And these same people — who are defeated by a troupe of monkeys — have the bomb. Let that sink in.

  3. Aww and those monkeys weren’t social distancing or wearing their face diapers! This will be the source of the mythical second wave.

    ““Can monkeys write blackmail notes?”

    An infinite number of them can.”

    …and the ransom note would look like this…

    “Sonnet CXX

    That you were once unkind befriends me now,
    And for that sorrow, which I then did feel,
    Needs must I under my transgression bow,
    Unless my nerves were brass or hammered steel.
    For if you were by my unkindness shaken,
    As I by yours, you’ve passed a hell of time;
    And I, a tyrant, have no leisure taken
    To weigh how once I suffered in your crime.
    O! that our night of woe might have remembered
    My deepest sense, how hard true sorrow hits,
    And soon to you, as you to me, then tendered
    The humble salve, which wounded bosoms fits!
    But that your trespass now becomes a fee;
    Mine ransoms yours, and yours must ransom me.”
    -Shakespeare
