Here are some ideas for celebrating Monkey Day:
– Watch “Monkey Business” with the Marx Brothers.
– Watch “Monkey Business” with Cary Grant and Marilyn Monroe.
– Watch one of the Planet of the Apes movies.
– Watch the attached smelly chimp clip.

And here are a few monkey facts:
  • A monkey is any primate that is not a human, prosimian, or ape.
  • Monkeys have tails; apes do not.
  • Chimpanzees can drink water using a “glass” made from a leaf.
  • If there is a lack of food, female monkeys will stop mating until there are better circumstances for successfully raising babies. 
  • The first creature in space was a rhesus monkey named Albert. He launched on June 11, 1948.
  • There is a strong rumour that a monkey was once tried and convicted for smoking a cigarette in South Bend, Indiana.
