What's the hottest ticket in London at the moment do you think?

Would you believe the monkey enclosure at London Zoo?

A couple of weeks ago the zoo imported a group of squirrel monkeys from Whipsnade Zoo and installed them in a fancy new walk-through enclosure.

Result: the Meet the Monkeys exhibiton, which has become the surprise hit of the season.

The exhibition was opened by BBC comedy pairing The Mighty Boosh, and even Jodie Marsh popped into say hello (Meet the Puppies?...maybe not).

Ok, we admit it, so we only wrote this post so we could have that picture of a sleeping baby squirrel monkey on the front page. So sue us!

But do you have any excuse for them using the phrase "walk-thru" on their posters on the tube?

Rob

There are no excuses for using the word 'thru'.

It is, in a word, inexcusable.
