What A Little Jerk!: Monkey Steals Food From Sloth, Sloth Too Slow To Do Anything About It

May 12, 2016


This is a very short video from the Sóstó Zoo in Hungary of a little squirrel monkey stealing a piece of food right out of a sloth's hand, who is far too slow to do anything about it but make an angry face. That poor sloth. Who goes around stealing people's food? "Says the guy who just ate the other half of somebody's sub from the break-room fridge." What? That was mine! I just don't remember buying it or eating the first half.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to DieselNuts, who never thought you could hate a monkey so much until now.

    I knew this was going to be sad but I clicked anyway because I'm masochistic.

    I can't believe how a five second video made me so sad... Enough of this-- back to my work.

    Can somebody please make a GIF of this? I want to use it EVERYWHERE.

    This is the meanest thing I've ever seen one animal do to another. Not the worst, by far, but definitely the meanest.

    Ducks and dolphins are notoriously rapey. Swans are real fucking jerks. Birds in general suck at being bros toward anything that isn't their own species.

  • You are just all peaches and rainbows.

    4 of 7 deadly sins are displayed here: The monkey committed #5.Pride #1.Envy #2.Gluttony. But the worst is being the #6.Sloth.

  • On a scale of best to worst, based on the degree and length to which a sin has been committed, this sloth joke is unforgivable by God.

  • Jenness

    I don't think there is a scale of best to worse - and all are forgivable by God in the Bible; one is not worse than another - only the degree and length to which the sin is committed

    You're so wrong, my friend. The Seven Deadly Sins, a medieval construct used in morality plays, actually ARE ordered according to--and this is true--which are the greatest sins against LOVE. I kid you not.

  • Jenness

    You are correct that Pope Gregory I in around 600AD was the person who first wrote and called them the 7 deadly sins along with the 7 deadly virtues but then he prefaced it with biblical teachings and the poem by Psychomachia written by the Christian governor Aurelius Clementus Prudentius in the early 400's AD he predicated this from. Specifically:

    Sins: Proverbs 6:16-19, "These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies,and one who sows discord among brethren.” and the ever-popular Galatians 5:19-21 which expounds "Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God."

    Virtues (which cure the sins): Kindness = Cures envy by placing the desire to help others above the need to supersede them

    Temperance = Cures gluttony by implanting the desire to be healthy, therefore making one fit to serve others

    Charity or love = Cures greed by putting the desire to help others above storing up treasure for one’s self

    Chastity or Self-control = Cures lust by controlling passion and leverages that energy for the good of others

    Humility = Cures pride by removing one's ego and boastfulness, therefore allowing the attitude of service

    Diligence or Zeal = Cures slothfulness by placing the best interest of others above the life of ease and relaxation.

    Patience = Cures wrath by taking time to understand the needs and desires of others before acting or speaking.

    Thank you Bible Sites of the Internet for now I hath discovereth new information..ith..eth..ssss

  • Alright, I get that we should ban sensuality (gross), but sorcery? When has sorcery every hurt anyone?

  • tim

    If you want to get technical, the so called deadly sins aren't even in the Bible.

    I'm still amazed pandas and sloths survive in the wild.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Fucking koalas... 0 intelligence, they eat toxic leaves with almost no calories in them, they're probably the dumbest mammals on the planet, they're not cute (I'll cut anyone who says otherwise!!), and make so little sense from an evolutionary standpoint it's a miracle they weren't wiped out by their own ineptitude. Or a eucalyptus blight.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    Intelligence has nothing to do with survival, at least Koalas can defend themselves. (quite aggressively at that) Pandas barely even mate together in the wild and when they do they fail at it when they try!

  • GeneralDisorder

    Oh god. You're Australian aren't you?

    I know intelligence isn't a common survival strategy. Very few animals possess what could be considered intelligence. But Koalas have the smallest brain to body mass of any mammal and have a smooth brain. If a koala scratches a predator it's probably just nerves firing at random.
