Chinese traditionally viewed tiger as the king of the forest,
but last weekend a little monkey belonged
to a macaque clan caged in Zhaoqing Zoo (肇庆), Guangdong Province,
decided to challenge tiger's authority when the giant was
taking a nap on the other side of the bars. According to
various witness reports, the antagonist grabbed a stone and
hurled it as an intercage ballistic missile across the border
towards the head of the tiger.
The giant was immediately woken up to the confrontational
reality from its harmonious dream. "I strongly
protest your conduct and firmly object your act," the
giant grumbled quietly, then forgave the warmonger and
went back to sleep.
However, the monkey is not a peace-lover by
nature so its militant business of aggression went on. Another
stone missile launched. And the tiger was once again forced
to face the reality of war from its dreamland of peace. "I
strongly protest your conduct and firmly object your act",
it announced stately, and raised its sharp paws in a gesture
of complaint and disapproval.
But the empty words served nothing to deter the restless
monkey from escalating its military actions. It picked up
a handful of sands from the ground and threw them as a dirty
bomb against the tiger's
"I strongly protest and firmly object!" the giant
roared furiously as it got sands in its eyes, stepping backward
and forward in pain.
The monkey exposed
its teeth to show its grin. "I've already known that,
can you tell me something that I don't know?" The brave
monkey smirked behind the protective bars.
