A monkey created quite a stir in one Chinese province when it was mistaken for an alien creature.

Housewife Mao Xiping first encountered the monkey when she found it stealing cucumbers from her flat, she noted that it had an "alien face" and showed it to her neighbours who agreed that they'd never seen anything like it.

"Locals panicked when Mao Xiping, a housewife from the village of Gezhai, in Henan province, central China, found the scraggy simian stealing cucumbers from her flat."

Are you kidding me ? I like how they thought it was an " Alien " , its seems to me as of late, that China is the hot spot for brainless people and retarded stories ...... TiP.

A classic example of the mind taking the obvious and exaggerating it, bending it to be something else, telling other people its something else and the mind believing it, when really we know what it is... typical woman

Well, a malnourished monkey is not the only thing that's been mistaken for an alien. I found it interesting that the "alien" idea is that pervasive.
