Monkey excels Humans
Posted by Alfred F Seneviratne on 11/23/2009

One day, three engineers, one from Dialog, one from Tigo and one From Mobitel, went out for a walk. They were old buddies from the same University and Were together for an University reunion. For no apparent reason, they decided to visit a zoo.
Passed a cage, observed a Monkey at play.

One got an idea to prove who excels the others.
A competition to prove who is better among themselves?

Tigo guy said; "Who's superior?"
Agreed by other two, "Who could make this Monkey laughs; Works for the best firm", was the contest.

Why not, said other two. "Let's have a test".
Over mutual agreement, Tigo guy attempted first.

Being a pure logical strategist, Tigo guy tried to make Monkey laugh. With many Jokes and Monkey remained still.
More practical engineer; Dialog guy made funny gestures but Monkey ignored. Now comes Mobitel guy; always trained to be, whispered something, Nearing into monkey's ear, and it burst out laughing at him.

Other two were astonished, how he managed to beat them?
Reluctant to accept defeat so easily; Tigo guy suggested another test;
"Making Monkey cry," keeping, same earlier rules.
Tigo guy narrated sad stories, and it failed again...
Then, Dialog guy whispered something near to monkey's ear.
No response at all from Monkey.
When Mobitel guy's murmured something near Monkey's ear; Patting the shoulder, it started crying.
Other two just could not believe what they witnessed!

Tigo guy said "OK, you've won twice. If you can win just
This one; we will bow to you, if you make this Monkey run".
And he barked at Monkey and ordered him to run.
It stayed put where it was.
Dialog guy, true to his type, pushed and prodded the Monkey - Still no go.
So comes Mobitel guy who whispered near Monkey's ear. Monkey ran off to Cage's far corner; non stop as fast as it could as if it was scared to death!
