I knew I shoulda taken that left turn at Albuquerque!

Some of the best Orlando police work is actually just the result of having watched a whole lotta Looney Tunes as a kid.

Today, Orlando Animal Control crews captured a monkey that was on the loose in a neighborhood in the west part of town. How, you ask?  The monkey fell for the oldest trick in the book - the "banana on a string" gag.  


Note to other monkeys - if you're at home and there's a knock, and then you open the door to find a beautifully packaged gift box - don't unwrap it! (Especially if it's from the ACME mail order company and it's ticking).
Also, be suspicious of babies left on your doorstep and little old ladies carrying umbrellas.

And finally, when asked, "one lump or two" by a rabbit holding a sledgehammer, don't respond!

The cops might have also coated themselves in vanishing cream, and simply walked up to the monkey while invisible.
