Home / news / Monkey in woman's bra makes waves at Amherst courthouse
WSLS-TV ^ | March 10, 2010 | WSLS

Posted on 03/10/2011 12:49:44 PM PST by Beaten Valve

Authorities said a woman entered the Amherst County courthouse this morning with a tiny monkey tucked into her bra, dressed in diapers and a white dress with pink flowers.

The woman was not identified, but officials confirmed the incident — from Commonwealth’s Attorney Stephanie Maddox to deputies who were working in the courthouse.

“You couldn’t make up something like this,” Maddox said.

The woman had arrived for a hearing in Juvenile and Domestic Relations court, officials said.

They had no idea that she had the monkey — a female named “Kara” — until she went into an office to fill out routine, court-related paperwork.

When the woman referred to a daughter, a puzzled official asked where the daughter was. That’s when she pulled the monkey, only inches tall, out of her bra.

She referred to it as “her daughter,” said she had purchased it on eBay and that she had the creature’s clothes specially made in West Virginia.

Court officials were stunned when tiny Kara moved her head, waving a hand and began gnawing on the dress.

One official asked why the woman had the monkey in her bra and quoted her as saying, “Well, would you leave your child at home? She has to be close to me.”

Asked who let the monkey through the metal detector, a deputy quipped: “It wasn’t armed.”

Good answer. I predict this deputy will go far.

“dressed in diapers”

I’m sure the diapers were functional rather than aesthetic.

Was she wearing the diapers and the white dress with pink flowers? Or the monkey?

This ad is from back before we even had zip codes.

But you can still order baby chickens, ducks, turkeys, pheasants, etc. for delivery by regular post office mail.

I remember when I was in 3rd grade I ordered an ant farm with ants.

When the package came, I opened it and saw the ants were in a tube-like container. I opened it and saw that the ants were motionless and non-reactive. I assumed they had died in shipment, so I dumped them out on the sidewalk and stomped on them in anger.

I probably should have read the instructions first.

So was the woman wearing a monkey stuffed in her underclothes, or was the monkey wearing a woman’s bra?

I need to know for the “things in pants” keyword PING list. May need to start a whole new classification.

No, that's the proper way to kill ants.....It beats a magnifying glass and frying them one at a time.
