(Reuters) - Indonesian police have arrested a couple who made meatballs from the flesh of protected monkeys, an animal conservation group said on Wednesday.

The pair poached dozens of rare Javan langurs, also known as silver-leaf monkeys, from Baluran National Park in the east of Java island, according to a statement released by Indonesia-based animal protection group ProFauna.

Hunters eating bushmeat is probably the reason why HIV exists, according to many geneticists. Toldja that stuff isn’t good for you.

During the southeast Asian unpleasantness, a friend and I were strolling through a local ville when we noticed a rather enticing spicy smell coming from a roadside stand. We asked the elderly Vietnamese proprietor what it was. He informed us in his severely fractured English that it was his special monkey stew.

He saw the horrified looks on our faces and said, “No, no, is ok. Is VC monkey!” He even offered us a discount to try it but we declined.

We told some of the other GIs about it later. One of them said, “Oh, yeah. I tried that. Pretty good eatin’ as long as one of the hands doesn’t come up in your spoon.”

In their defense, it’s possible that Javan langurs are pretty ugly.

Imagine what they would have done with unprotected monkeys!

It's a good thing they used protection while commiting their act of monkey business!

What’s the big deal? Monkeys are good. They have a taste that is kind of a cross between california condor and bald eagle.

Thanks ...Strange Angels is not my favorite album of hers ...but “The Dream Before” , for me, solves one of the most profound metaphysical questions within its lyrics. ;)
