Monkey Waiters

A restaurant in Japan has added two monkeys to its wait staff. What do you think would be the biggest problem with having monkeys as waiters in a restaurant?

1) The repeated mysterious disappearance of the bananas from the Bananas Foster.

2) Staffing shortages during the Discovery Channel's Primate Week.

3) Cold entrees due to arriving at the table from the kitchen via the rafters.

Which would be the biggest plus with this concept?

1) Could probably get away with using a few shiny buttons for a tip.

2) They won't arrive to work tired because they were up late watching the Colbert Report.

3) Don't have to worry about your husband flirting with them.

So is this considered a "monkey business"? (Sorry I couldn't resist)

Monkeys are cute, just not sure if I would trust them with my food : )

Nah, I wouldn't trust them with it either.

Nice puns guys!

I saw this on tv recently! So wild to see these two monkeys serving customers. @Kiva - good one - monkey business! :)

I'd have to worry about flying poo. Hopefully they're not in relation to the trunk monkey.

Yeah, I don't think the health department would allow primate employees in this country. And with the economy so crappy, giving jobs to monkey seems like a really bad idea. Could you imagine though, coming to work one day, only to find out you have been replaced by a monkey?

We have enough Monkeys at our work, don't need any real ones. That is a pretty funny video.

I hate to see animals used for work like this, but those guys seem so happy and they have a 2 hour limit.

Monkeys: Just make sure you don't serve those customers too much beer. It may affect how well they tip.
