An experiment has revealed that seven monkeys typing for six hours have produced the complete works of Jeffrey Archer.
The experiment, to test the theory that an infinite number of monkeys hitting keys at random on an infinite number of keyboards would eventually produce the complete works of Shakespeare is being carried out by US organ grinder Jesse Anderson.
“Obviously getting my hands on infinite monkeys was always going to be a tall order, and I’ve only got two typewriters, but they’d knocked up Honour Among Thieves by 8.30,” revealed Mr Anderson.
“Given the fact that four of the monkeys spent the majority of the time flinging faeces at each other or furiously masturbating, I think to complete the entire literary works of Jeffrey Archer by 2 O’clock is quite impressive.”
Mr Anderson also confirmed that he wouldn’t stop the experiment there.
“I set out to see if the monkeys could produce the entire works of Shakespeare, but it will be interesting to see what else they can come up with.”
“In the last hour alone they’ve written Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code and the script for Transformers.”
