The Monkey Is In The Basketball

This email came last night from a tipster named Tori:

I don’t know if you guys ever watch Law & Order: SVU, but the most amazing thing ever happened on Tuesday’s episode. Basically, the episode is about smuggling exotic animals into the country (seriously, this show has become so, so terrible). The cops are trying to capture a guy who’s smuggling in a rare gibbon (which they are doing so they can make expensive chopsticks out of him, for realz). At the airport, they observe a basketball that is rolling around on its own, which leads them to the realization that the monkey is in the basketball. Which leads to the amazing line “The monkey is in the basketball.” But it doesn’t end there. The fuzz then follows this crafty baskeball smuggler guy to the exotic animal smuggler hideout and swoop in to arrest the smugglers. A bunch of Walker Texas Ranger-style police antics go down, during which time, someone throws the basketball to cap to Captain Kragen…who OPENS THE BASKETBALL AND THE MONKEY COMES OUT AND HUGS HIM.

Yes, yes, yes. Clip after the jump.

That monkey is the specialest victim of all. I think I’m going to have to start watching this show. (Thanks for the tip, Tori!)
