monkeys and bananas
About a research project with monkeys. All the monkeys lived in a lab and in cages which is probably not a real fun place for monkeys to live but they were research monkeys so that is the breaks for those monkeys. I do not remember the parameters of the social experiments they were doing on the monkeys either so I am not a good researcher [oh no] but here is how it worked —
The monkeys really liked bananas. [Apparently this is not made up fiction banana monkey love for cartoons monkeys really do like bananas.] And the researchers were doing some sort of study about resources so they would give the monkeys bananas but only once in a while.
All the girl monkeys would get really happy and eat their bananas right up.
All the boy monkeys would save their bananas and then when the girl monkeys’ bananas were all gone, would try to trade bananas for sexual favors.
I have no idea if this story is made up and I also think those researchers were maybe a little jaded maybe those boy monkeys were not trying to use those bananas as currency for sexual favors maybe they were just being romantic.
But the story cracked me up.
