Clearly Irritated Monkey Punches TV Host on the Air

As the meme goes, if you bring live animals on your TV show, you’re going to have a bad time. Rabbits will do what rabbits are wont to do, and monkeys will monkey around. And, in the case of one Texas television host, they may punch you.

That’s what happened to Texas morning show host Deborah Duncan when she was joined by an animal handler and none other than the capuchin monkey famous for starring in the Dr. Doolittle movies. They monkey scampered about and Duncan decided to mess with it instead of feeding the monkey a grape. The primate’s reaction was to punch Duncan right in the face.

This is why local news needs more monkeys, for choice spontaneous moments like this. And because monkeys are awesome.
