Revenge of the dressed-up monkeys

From somewhere on the internet:

"Most of Booth's encounters were curious rather than dramatic, like the incident of the plink-plonk man, a street musician with a monkey outfitted like a mandarin from the Ming dynasty. One day, as Martin watched, the monkey managed to bite through his leather leash. In a flash, he was up a tree, where, ignoring his master's pleading and cursing, he carefully disrobed and flung his costume to the street below, then sent a perfectly aimed stream of urine down on the man's upturned face, to the delight of the crowd."
