Monkey Waiters Paid in Soy Beans

If this Japanese restaurant were in Los Angeles, it'd probably get an "F" rating from the health department. But the Kayabukiya Tavern just north of Tokyo makes up for any uncleanliness with a big heaping of CUTE! Two uniformed macaque monkeys named Yat-chan and Fuku-chan are part of the wait staff. In the following news clip, I love that anchorman's accent and the translator's matter-of-fact voiceover (by the way, this is real; this is not from The Onion):

  1. No kidding, about the "F" rating.
    I almost heaved when I saw their kitchen.

    Clearly monkey labor laws exclude them from cleaning.

  2. Okay, I'm a retard - this was obviously meant to go on the monkey business item.

    I need that second cup, now.
