Monkeys Essay, Research Paper


Expensive Monkeys

A tourist walked into a pet shop near Microsoft’s corporate

headquarters and was looking at the animals on display. While he

was there, another customer walked in and said to the shopkeeper,

“I’ll have a C monkey please.”

The shopkeeper nodded, went over to a cage at the side of the

shop and took out a monkey. He fit a collar and leash, handed it

to the customer, saying, “That’ll be $5000.” The customer paid

and walked out with his monkey.

Startled, the tourist went over to the shopkeeper and said, “That

was a very expensive monkey. Most of them are only a few hundred

dollars. Why did it cost so much?”

The shopkeeper answered, “Ah, that monkey can program a computer

in C — very fast, tight code, no bugs, well worth the money.”

The tourist looked at the monkey in another cage. “That one’s

even more expensive! $10,000! What does it do?”

“Oh, that one’s a C++ monkey; it can manage object-oriented

programming, Visual C++, even some Java. All the really useful

stuff,” said the shopkeeper.

The tourist looked around for a little longer and saw a third

monkey in a cage of its own. The price tag around its neck read

$50,000. He gasped to the shopkeeper, “That one costs more than

all the other put together! What on earth does it do?”

The shopkeeper replied, “Well, I haven’t actually seen it do

anything, but it says it’s an engineer.”
