Addiction alert! Monkey's post-lockdown party has many green with envy
- In a viral video, a monkey is seen sitting inside a liquor shop and consuming alcohol

If you thought that only you needed a break out of this monotony post-COVID lockdowns, you were wrong. This monkey from Madhya Pradesh in India decided to make up for the lost fun times, like most of us.
In a video, which is going viral on social media, a monkey is seen sitting inside a liquor shop reportedly in Madhya Pradesh and consuming alcohol from a bottle like a pro. The video shows the uninvited guest at the shop, completely ignoring the ambiance, opening the cap of the bottle, and then starts sipping it slowly. Stylish no?

Well, the shopkeeper did offer some snacks to the monkey, who was busy drinking. Offered a few biscuits, the monkey chose to ignore the food over drinks.
One of the bystanders shot on a mobile phone the chillin’ time of the monkey, who held the bottle like a regular bewada (drinker) on theka (liquor joint) and swallowed alcohol down his throat. Many people gathered near the shop to watch the monkey moment. The video clip ended with the drunken monkey licking traces of giggle juice from its paws like an aardvark on an anthill.
Seems like this monkey is regular. A few days ago, according to the report on Asianet online, the monkey was seen drinking leftovers from old liquor bottles lying near the store.
This sure was a fun incident to watch but monkeys in parts of India are often responsible for serious incidents. In one such tragic incident in February, a mob of wild monkeys broke into a home in the city of Thanjavur and kidnapped newborn twins — killing one of the 8-day-old girls.
