Man. Woman. Monkey.
By C. J. Booth
A woman and a monkey board a train. Separately. Trying to appear nonchalant.
The woman’s husband slips aboard just as the train is pulling out.
The man finds and confronts the monkey in the club car, the last car on the train.
“Are you having an affair with my wife?” he asks the monkey.
The monkey lowers the newspaper he’s reading and stares at the man. Finally, he answers him.
“Would you like a banana?”
“What?” asks the man incredulously.
“A BANANA!” shrieked the man. “What about my wife?”
The monkey shook his head. “She didn’t want one.”
