Evil Taekwondo Monkeys

I saw this over at Angry Asian Man, and it is too awesome not to share.

A man named Lo Wung trained a group of monkeys taekwondo to entertain crowds outside a shopping center in Nshi, in eastern China’s Hubei province.

I think you already know where this is going: the monkeys turned on their trainer!

From Telegraph UK:

Hu Luang, 32, a bystander who photographed the incident, said: “I saw one punch him in the eye — he grabbed another by the ear and it responded by grabbing his nose. They were leaping and jumping all over the place. It was better than a Bruce Lee film.”

At one point the monkey trainer grabbed a staff to hit the monkeys, only to find himself facing a stick-brandishing monkey that cracked him over the head.

He only managed to get the monkeys under control by tangling them up in the rope that had been used to stop them running off.

Mr Hu said: “He was really furious, he made the monkeys kneel on the ground with their hands tied behind their backs to punish them and make them show remorse for their nasty attack.”

I always joke about Evil Ninja Monkeys (take a look at my footer), but THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER!

    I just keep flashing back to a really mean Advanced Algebra teacher that constantly said:
    "I could teach a monkey to do this"

    He kept that crack up for about 4 classes straight then one of the wittier and braver students said after
    the line, "yeah but I bet they’d turn on YOU". He never to my knowledge repeated the line which goes to show
    he was also capable of learning as well.

    See this is why we don’t teach monkeys martial arts people, they are far too strong, fast and
    just a little too moody. If it wasn’t for that rope Mr. Wung would have had the snot kicked out of him
    and probably worse (totally depends on how pissed the monkeys were .. just like Russian Roulette).

    Fair warning to those who may want to send their pet monkey to college!
