Reuters reports that restaurants in Tokyo are using monkeys as waiters (really, more like busboys — they’re not taking orders — but so what?), and I say, what took so long? Hopefully soon some visionary will have the courage to bring this trend to the U.S., and health codes be damned. If I could have a monkey bring me sake, I would pretty much have achieved everything I’ve ever longed for in this life.
