A dad who laughed at and prodded a monkey’s penis was left needing a trip to the car wash after the chimp got his own back by peeing through the window.

Martin Chapman, 38, was on a day trip to Knowsley Safari Park, in Merseyside, when the chimp jumped on his car on May 12.

Sat inside the vehicle with wife Jenny, 36, and two of their children, Joseph, 17, and Mollie, 10, the family were left in hysterics when the monkey took a shining to them and poked his penis through the window gap.



The dad, of Barnsley, Yorkshire, decided to flick his low-hanging fruit but it was the monkey who had the last laugh, after he managed to wee into the car and all over Martin’s legs.

The dad-of-three shouted: ‘The dirty little b******!’

Recounting the bizarre incident, Martin said his family had left the windows ajar to feed the monkeys grapes, despite Safari park staff warning visitors to keep them closed.

Martin said: ‘Soon enough one monkey came and sat on the car and he was getting quite territorial, stopping any other monkeys getting on.

‘We were all laughing our heads off because he was just poking his bits through my window, so I thought I’d give it a cheeky flick – but he soon got his own back on me.

‘He started weeing and I tried to put the window up but his fingers were still over the top so I couldn’t straight away, and his wee was just going all over my legs!’

Martin saw the funny side of the situation, adding that he was glad his viral footage had gotten so many hits and made others laugh.

He added: ‘I wasn’t really bothered, I just thought it was funny, I work as a bricklayer so I’m always coming home filthy.



‘I just can’t believe the video has nearly a million hits, so many people I don’t even know are commenting and sharing it.’
