Random acts of blondness, part the second

This really was a funny story. I swear. I just hope I can do it justice because ... um ... it requires so much setup and explanation that I fear for its life.

OK, so here we go. There is a theory that if you put an infinite number of monkeys in a room with an infinite number of typewriters, then sooner or later the monks will type out the entire works of Shakespeare.

Well, that's the way I heard it. When I went to write up this little piece of blondeness, I found that Wikipedia heard it different: that ONE monkey, given an infinite amount of time, will almost surely type a particular chosen text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.

I don't like this interpretation. Neither does Wonderhubby, as evidenced by his comments in this scenario. So we're throwing that one away.

Wonderhubby: So these guys at the hardware store were talking about fourth dimension and infinite space. It was pretty whacked. I wanted to walk over there and tell them "Ya know, if you have an infinite number of monkeys ..."

Evil Wife/Mother: *snickering*

The Roo-girl: Wait. An infinite number of monkeys ... I think that's impossible, but ... um ... wait ... I know how you could get that ...

EW/M: Uh, yeah?

TRG: Yeah, I mean, there aren't really an infinite number of monkeys in the world. So the monkeys would just start pooping out other monkeys and throwing 'em over there ...

EW/M: *concerned tone* Honey, I think we need to talk.

TRG: *laughing* Mom, I know where babies come from! But we wouldn't have time to wait nine months for a new monkey, so pooping them out seemed like the best idea.

I think I need to lie down now.

Wikipedia is wrong. Way wrong.

It is an infinite number of monkeys, because a long, long time ago, in Canada, there was a Molson Canadian commercial that talked about an infinite number of monkeys with typewriters. And beer commercials are never wrong.

Everything I've learned, I've learned from beer commercials in Canada.

And wouldn't you know it, it's led me to be pretty successful in the US!

*Snort* it's a good thing there's no vanilla coke, because it would have come out my nose. I love her logic.
