Don't mess with the monkeys
A new security barrier going up in Jerusalem will protect Israeli families from a new kind of Intifada: rock-throwing chimpanzees.

The chimps at Jerusalem's Biblical Zoo begin throwing rocks whenever they became agitated. And their rock-throwing antics usually generate large crowds, agitating them even more.

The new, reinforced glass barrier, which is not called a security fence, coupled with filling in the moat in the chimpanzee exhibit, will allow the chimps to come right to the glass and get a close-up view of their human audience -- which will probably do sillier things than the chimps will.

I should stock my yard with these guys! Doh, what have I been thinking! They'd keep my neighbors under control!
