Yeah it's funny. I like this one From Tiffany Mynx the porn star She has the monkey running around to the airports waiting for her and wasting his time and setting up porn flicks with one of his dudes. He even gets him fighting with another scam artist over her.

I like the other site too, becuase they actully got some money out of these crooks.
