Here is reason #618 why that may be a good idea.
I found it interesting that these monkeys were introduced to alcohol due to the slave-driven rum trade that took place in the Caribbean. So alcohol created slaves to taskmasters who were human and slaves to the taskmaster that is a distilled spirit.
"Take care not to forget the LORD, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. The LORD your God, shall you fear; Him shall you serve, and by his name shall you swear."
These entertaining little monkeys remind me of some people in Hollywood.
