Chick Mauled By Monkeys After Trying To Conquer Her Fear Of Monkeys


"A British woman who went to a Thai nature resort to conquer her fear of monkeys has been savaged by a pack of macaques." [monkeys]

"The horrific attack happened on Monkey Island near to the popular holiday island of Phuket in southern Thailand.


"I thought I was heading for safety under this rock in the shade, only to cool down," Mrs Darwell, from Peterborough, said.


"I laid the towel down and there were no monkeys in sight.


"The next thing I noticed, this monkey walked up next to me and I thought, oh dear, and I began to stand up to move away.


"Then, the monkey took my wrist and pounced on my right arm, sinking his teeth in and hung off it.


"He wouldn't let go; he was locked on. I was absolutely petrified.""

"Mrs Darwell said she had agreed to go on the Siam Sea Canoe tour with a friend to confront her fear of monkeys.


Her phobia had been triggered by her father bringing up a chimpanzee which she described as "positively evil"."

I have to agree with the gents from Barstool Sports on this one:
Here’s a funny question – why the F did this chick find it so necessary to conquer her fear of fuckin monkeys? How fuckin often do you come across monkeys that you need to make sure you can handle that situation and keep you composure when confronted with a pack of primates? I mean I’m pretty sure people usually consider phobias “irrational fear.” But then you go to Monkey Island and get mauled by 60 or 70 monkeys and all the sudden its not so irrational is it? This bitch didn’t have a phobia of monkeys she was just smart enough to know she should probably stay the fuck away from them.

Hopefully that took some of the edge off England and USA losses in the World Cup Round of 16.
