It was more or less a joke, and yes daru(i) (Hiragana) is Japanese and means the same as DARU (Katagana):
怠い 【だるい】 (adj) (uk) sluggish, feel heavy, languid, dull, (P)
The finishing 'u' is sometimes spoken, sometimes not (desu:male: des female=desu spoken)

So according to this, 'monkey' in Japanese should be "sar"? I don't think so. "Daru" as "dull" is not Japanese, it is the so-called 'katakana-go' (anything
non-Japanese written in katakana, loosing all original pronunciation). Like
