Friday Night Fights: Monkey riot!

The Monkey King of Flower-Fruit Mountain doesn't want much.

A deity who just wants to oversee his peaceful slice of heaven, where his followers frolic while he masters the major heavenly disciplines of kung-fu, the Monkey King is content. Until he catches wind of a dinner party that all the gods, goddesses, spirits and demons will be attending. Deciding he likes a good dinner party as much as the next simian, the Monkey King flies off to heaven, where he runs into the spiritual version of The Dude Behind The Velvet Rope. He tries to explain that he should be on the guest list, but ...

In the end, The Monkey King did what any reasonable person would do and politely lodged a complaint with the management before making his dignified exit.

Oh, wait. That's not what happened at all.

Now — who wants dessert?

Hungry for a beating? Bahlactus has a full menu!
