What we have here is . . . a failure to communicate.
On the one hand, monkey see, monkey do. By implication, fools imitate. As we all know, imitation is the sincerest of flattery. And flattery will get you nowhere. Nowhere. With no good, there can be no evil. But wait! On the other non-opposable-thumbed hand, see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. And arent idle hands the devils playground? So the wise man builds his house upon a rock. And you may very well rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham, but a stone in the kidney is hard to pass up. Or down. Words to live by. Nine hundred ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred ninety-nine monkeys. A: That and three dollars and eighty-five cents will get you a double-shot grande with whole milk, no foam. And youll have to sit on a stool. When youre hot, youre hot, and when youre a monkey short, you get Belgium.
What is a hypothetical chimpanzee, anyway?
There are only chimpanzees and chimpanzee wannabes. And note: A chimpanzee should not be regarded as a monkey but as an ape. You can call it a monkey, right to its face, but dont regard it as one. And dont say anything about . . . shhh . . . prehensile tails (nudge, nudge, wink, wink).
I mean, play hard but play fair. Obey the law of the pack, and all. OK, so here we go. Three to one, blast off.
