Story 1

“How the hell did THAT happen?”

“Well, Coach, the athletes said that we basketball players are no more than overgrown monkeys, so we broke into their locker room last night, and used their shoes instead of a ball for practice…on a tree. That’s where monkeys live, right?”

Story 2

My father taught me that we should always use the enemy’s weapon against him.

So when those runners threw a shoe at us, they should have known better than to dry their newly-washed shoes in the open.

NOW let’s see who’s the monkey?

Story 3

“Mom, I swear ’tis not my fault. I did watcha told me to do.”

“Then how come this tree is laden with shoes ‘stead of fruit, Jack?”

“I did throw away those beans, but how was I ‘sposed to know that they would fall on the terrace where those athletes were drying their shoes?”
