Thieving little monkeys!

The MSG and I have just returned from our Summer hols in the Costa del Sol. Whilst there we took a trip to Gibraltar and fell prey to some thieving monkeys. Luckily in this case they were literally of the furry variety. At the top of the rock, preparing to see the cage, we bought an ice-lolly for the MSG and a packet of crisps for me!

Within a second of walking out of the shop one monkey jumped on the MSG, snatched the ice lolly out of her hand (scratching her arm in the process), then jumped on the roof and nonchalantly ate it just out of reach; seconds later another snatched my crisps and sat there dipping into the packet.

The sign says “don’t feed the monkeys…” they didn’t seem to need much help to me.
