Tell me do monkeys really have brains, read on and find out at seligors castle|
A monkey decided to
write a book.
It was an unheard of conception
and caused much consternation
amongst his fellow
"You will make our family a laughing
stock," said Father Monkey to his son.
do not do such things,what on earth are you
thinking of? I have never
had any desire to write a book and neither did my
father before me.
Please think hard about this foolish idea." he
sighed. "What is wrong
with being a warrior, or failing that, a
tool-maker? There is always a
market for twigs designed to root out termites
and grubs. Think of
your mother, do you want other monkeys to
point her out in the trees
and snigger behind her tail, look, there goes the
monkey whose son
wants to write a book!" his father cotinued. "You
are being selfish and
unreasonable and if you don't see sense in this
matter I will be forced
to box your ears!
"Younger brother," said
the monkey's brother,
"for all that Father is sometimes very narrow in
his thinking I do
think he may be right Monkey's don't write books!"
He frowned deeply.
"I am, as you know, a well-respected Monkey about
town, admired by my
friends and eagerly sought after by lady monkeys
for grooming and if it
were to get about that my younger brother were an
intellectual and was
considering writing a book I would never be able to
go anywhere, no one
would ask me to sleep-overs and
parties and the most lovely girls would not want to
be my girl friends
anymore If you will not consider our parents
position then at least
think about mine - I have a reputation to think about.
