Master Criminal Eludes Tokyo Police - Lock Up Your Children!!

Original and very amusing article here. That article has given us the quote of the week, courtesy of Officer Toyama Tadayoshi: "This monkey is driving us crazy. It's so agile, and we only have nets." Apparently the monkey that terrorised passengers at Shibuya station last month is still out there! It's now suspected that the monkey got to Tokyo by riding a train from the mountains into the city. So far the monkey has humiliated police by consistently evading all attempts at capture and by urinating on them from atop a power line. Some pundits (me) have speculated (on this blog) that it might be the spirit of Ancient Japan passing comment on the current state of the Japanese Government.
