Monkeys work in Japanese restaurant
A restaurant in Japan has some unusual waiting staff on its books - two macaque monkeys.
Yatchan and Fukuchan serve customers hot towels and drinks, and are given soya beans as tips.
The monkeys are family pets who have been allowed to help in the bar. Animal rights regulations mean the premises have been visited to ensure the creatures are not being mistreated.
See the article for a video of them at work.
That's very amusing; I hope they're earning minimum wage. LOL
They work for peanuts.
Oy, Craven/Robert - what's the going rate for A2K gerbils??
That is the little Nihon Zaru, extremely intelligent and semi-aquatic, whence probably as in our own case the ease with upright posture.
