Once you have read this article see if you can work out what the first misstep in this little incident at Wirth’s Circus was.
I know it is hard to spot, so I will give you a hint. I think it was when they gave a monkey a loaded rifle. But I could be wrong.
I wonder if the monkey was actually aiming at Charles Broomhead or if it was a lucky shot? I notice he was wounded in the back, I wonder if the monkey saw that Mr. Broomhead’s attention was not on him, and dealt with him somewhat inappropriately.
It sounds a bit like a teacher chucking a piece of chalk at an inattentive student doesn’t it?
I thought monkeys usually threw poo when they wanted to get attention? Clearly the ones that do this are less well armed than ‘Tarzan’ was. What is the moral to the story? ‘Never give a monkey a gun’? or possibly ’Never turn your back on a drama queen’?
