I do not know what surprises me more — that OHSU is performing research on monkeys here in vegan, hippie, granola, animal-rights Portland or that several of said monkeys have escaped.
Of course, Twitter is going bananas over the monkeys: #pdxmonkey (see also: #pdxtmt and #monkeypocalypse). And with this being Portland, they seem to have a Shizzow account. The Shizzow history shows they’re taking a Max train (obviously into town to pick up some polar fleece and Crocs to better blend in.) This is unsurprising, considering a Coyote hopped on a red line train a
month few years ago:
If the monkeys show up on my doorstep, I’m taking them in as pets. I have always said I could use a monkey butler.
