A monkey appeared in Shibuya Station this morning. It hung out for a bit, then evaded a bunch of hapless looking goons with nets and made it's escape into the city. It's a "fancy that!" news story, you can read about it all over the place:

Apparently they checked with all the registered monkey owners in the capital, and no-one is missing a monkey. Which means that either this fella hiked his way in from out in the rurals, or he's been living wild and unnoticed in the middle of Tokyo. Either way, I want more than a story that raises a smirk. I want a movie, or possibly a TV mini-series; a comic book; a kids animated feature from Pixar or Ghibli - there are so many wonderful possibilities. Look sharp, Hollywood!
