Life has many wonderful things to offer: Impressionist art, Renaissance cathedrals and watching the sun set over a Pacific fogbank among them.
But for enjoyment and sheer wonder nothing tops the spectacle of a monkey riding a dog.
There will always be naysayers, but whichever marketing guru came up with the idea of placing smallish primates atop a larger canines and then letting them dash off madly – well, that my friends, is pure genius.
It is said there are a handful of things one should undertake in life if at all possible. These include visiting your nation’s capital, reading the classics and traveling, even if it’s within your own country.
I would add that no list of must-do items is complete without witnessing the spectacle that is a monkey riding a dog.
Don’t ask me why; it simply has to be experienced to be appreciated.
