Two kilometers from the village a car passed me with a monkey driving. I turned quickly, not believing what I had seen, and was perplexed. Reaching the village, I saw a man in a monkey suit, and told myself that it was just one of those pranks.

Around the corner, I got to the post office just in time to see the actual car that I had seen earlier, parking up. Out came this monkey. I said to it, ''You have to be joking!''
''Why? What's wrong?''
I said, trying to hold back the laugh, ''What's wrong! Are you for real?''
''Well, what do you see?''
''I see a monket, and it was driving a car!''
''Is it a crime?''
''No. But for God's sake! A monkey?''
''Don't you like monkeys? Or you think that they are stupid?''
'' I never said such a thing. All I'm saying...''
''Monkeys shouldn't be driving.'' It cut me short.
''Have you ever seen a...''
'Monkey driving?'' It finished the sentence for me.
''Well, actually, the law should not allow it!''
''And why is that?''
''Come off it! A monkey driving is not on!''
''I knew it, '' It said, ''you don't like animals!''
''Wo said that?'' I went closer to it.
''You're one of them,'' it said.
''How come you can talk?'' I asked. ''One of whom?''
''One of those who drive us away!''
''We are not driving you away. We're very friendly to the animals.'' I told it. Then I grabbed the outfit it was wearing and tugging hoping that something would give way. Then I heard a voice behind me, ''Are you okay, my dear George? Having problems with an outsider? WE'll soon fix that.''

The End.
