Oh, it's a WHEEL COVER! When I first looked at it, it looked oblong--like a football. My immediate thought was our old Army Drill Instructor's reference to monkeys and footballs. Those that have been in the military will know what I mean.

In the aviation business in the pre-war days, crashes were so prevalent that the standard parting shot from the dispatcher to the pilot was "bring the biggest pieces back."
I'm wondering if this is the biggest piece this monkey can bring back.

"In the constant battle to reduce costs--labor makes up a large part of the cost of a new car. Many car companies resorted to moving assembly plants to China--but as all of the competition also relocated, that advantage was lost.
It their new plant in Lagos, Nigeria, Mercedes-Benz is training a new workforce of simians to do assembly work."

Regarding the low labor cost for assembly--it proves the old adage "You pay PEANUTS, you get "MONKEYS."

"It has been said that "10,000 monkeys beating on typewriters for 10,000 years would eventually produce Shakespeare". In this photo, the assembly by primates of a Mercedes-Benz starts with this hubcap."

"So many people have left Detroit. Stealing hubcaps used to be done by street gangs--but there aren't even enough people left to make up a good street gang--now the task has fallen to monkeys."

You know capitalism has gotten out of hand when even 1%er monkeys have their status symbols.

Apparently, it's common for monkey's to steal things
Here's a reversed GIF--looking much like Spd's "pit crew".

"Much like the apes in the beginning of '2001--a Space Odyssey--Larry the Monkey learned how to use tools. He grew tired of being hit with feces thrown by other monkeys in the monkey house, so he invented the SHIELD."

CCTV captured this image of a critter running from the scene of the crime. Police officials say it matches descriptions of eyewitnesses who’d seen the same critter hanging about the Orion Township MI. car dealership where a dozen cars had been stripped of their tires and rims three weeks ago. Witnesses report having heard the critter muttering loudly as he ran ‘slowly, slowly, catchy monkey, MY ASS’. Profilers from the animal psych division at the FBI warned that the suspect should be considered psychologically harmed and dangerous.
