Bonnet Macaque Protests Hartz Ads on Cute Overload

Elwood, a 22-year-old Bonnet Macaque living in the dry deciduous forests of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, is staging a peaceful protest against the running of Hartz ads on Cute Overload.

The macaque, a follower of the teachings of Ghandi and practitioner of his philosophy of Satyagraha, will remain perched upon a leafless tree trunk until the Hartz ads are removed from Cute Overload.

Elwood, whose diet normally consists of nuts and berries, has forsworn food, water, and rest for the duration of the protest.

"Truth will be my nourishment," he told onlookers before withdrawing into silence.
