Our human DNA and monkey DNA is estimated to be between 96-98% identical, which “to some” is enough to suggest that we are genetically related. Monkeys have 24 chromosome pairs, where humans have only 23. Does that make us devolved-monkeys?
So why haven’t monkeys evolved? They’re definitely not stupid. Charles Darwin once said, “An American Monkey after getting drunk on Brandy would never touch it again, and thus is much wiser than most men.”
Preserving our lives from monkeyshines is not only important for us but also for others who depend on us. As human beings we should always act fittingly and maintain a proper watch over our ways. Unfortunately, some of us choose to keep on keeping on with our same old monkey-business. I know I will never understand how some monkey’s swing nor do I need to.
A Tomfoolery really can’t be true-blue friend. It’s as if they are always looking for a way to steal the show and our bananas. Sure we could talk until we were blue in the face; but as long as they hang out with that old organ grinder, forget about having a discussion. Once in a blue moon they might change. Unfortunately, it’s because they have taken a beating that leaves them black and blue or have ended up being caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.
“We've heard that a million monkeys at a keyboard could produce the Complete Works of Shakespeare; now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true.” -Robert Wilensky
I’m not big on being judgmental and am well aware that when I’ve decided to judge, the judgment falls on me. However, monkey business should cause our soul-detectors to go off and make our minds seem like a chattering, cymbal-banging monkey. Nevertheless, we need not sing the blues. We just need to be aware and be able to discern through a monkeyshine’s dubious and deceptive activity. Maybe even visualize (see-monkeys) as wearing sunglasses to avoid becoming hypnotized into a state of mimickery “monkey see monkey do. “There may even come a time to give up on some baboons and cross those monkey bars. Let Go… Grab On…Move Forward. Ooo…Ooo…Eee…Eee…Ahh…Ahh!!!
Remember in prayer the many that are sick of our community (wink). We have a lot to be thankful for because when we turn on our televisions the news is not about emergency routes for leaving our towns.
