    Monkey Loose at La Guardia!Breaking! There’s a monkey on the loose in La Guardia Airport! We repeat, monkey on the loose! The Times’ City Room blog reports that the primate disembarked from Spirit Airlines flight 180 from “the Miami–Ft. Lauderdale area.” It’s running amok in the main terminal, but we suspect they’ll catch it quickly: Based on its point of origin, we have to assume it’s traveling down the moving walkway about ten miles per hour under the limit, and with its left blinker on. UPDATE: The Times was a bit monkey-happy on this one. There was a contraband primate on a flight, apparently, but it was never on the loose. Nonetheless, please continue to enjoy the above picture.
