There's no need to make things up when real life is so peculiar. For instance, the story of the diaper wearing monkey perched atop the cart corral at a Lancaster, Ohio, Walmart this past Sunday evening.

An employee of the store was a bit startled to see a monkey wearing a diaper sitting on the cart corral in the parking lot. Seems the primate had escaped from a nearby camper. The Walmart worker closed in on the diaper-wearing monkey and grabbed its leash, just as the monkey’s owner came running his way in the parking lot, hollering, “let her go, let her go…did she bite you?”…No, ma’am, the monkey did not bite, apparently ‘this’ time, and the naughty monkey was safely returned to its owner.
