The named ascribed to a mythical creature which is behind all bad things that happen to you in the country of Pakistan. The Monkey Paw is a common urban legend for which locals place blame on for issues ranging from food poisioning to problems with local authorities to running out of hot water at the crappy house you live in. Bottom line? It's freaking everywhere!
Boy did I really get sick last night; the freaking Monkey Paw just reached up and grabbed my colon. The Money Paw snagged me last night as I passed through Customs... I didn't know alcohol was illegal! Its like The Monkey Paw just pushes cars on to the wrong side of the road in this country!
