Japanese Restaurant Cuts Costs by Hiring Monkeys

The economic downturn is affecting people worldwide and restaurants are often the first busineses to take hits, as people eat out less and less in hard times. One Japanese restaurant cut its staff of waiters and replaced them with monkeys that only work two hours a day, but bring in tourists and business from around the world.

Now, I know we are all being hit hard by the slowing global economy, but monkeys? How would you even think to do that? It's worth watching the video. But, I dont think it's worth a trip to Japan.
