Whoever coined the term “more fun than a barrel of monkeys” clearly never played with the toy Barrel of Monkeys. During my childhood many of my friends and family had a barrel of monkeys but I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if I understood how to play with them. To this day I am as dumb as a chimp when it comes to understanding these things. So if you know what these things were all about (and more importantly if you want these monkey puns to stop) please let me know. Until then I’m putting on my monkey suit and getting down to some serious monkey business.
