Monkey Files Discrimination Suit Against U.S. Open
On the heels of an announcement that a terrier named Linus would be the first dog to serve as ball boy for the U.S. Open tennis tournament, a monkey named Carl has filed a lawsuit against the USTA for discrimination. Carl’s lawyer, Jerry Yung, claims the monkey’s application for the position of ball boy was rejected due to lack of experience.
“Carl has been fetching tennis balls for nearly four years,” Yung told the press on Sunday. “I think we all know what ‘not enough experience’ means in this context. It means monkeys need not apply.”
