This photo is bouncing around the Internet right now:


It is purportedly to be of a monkey rescuing a puppy after a recent explosion on a construction site in China though there's pretty strong evidence that the photo is at least four years old (see here and here).

Whenever the image was shot, it's pretty awesome.

Monkeys rule.

(The very awesome top photo of the flying stuffed monkey was taken by my ultimate frisbee teammate, Andrea Killiard, a couple weeks ago at the annual end of the season summer league tournament.)
