Now the VOA Special English Program Words and their Stories.
Moneys are very similar to us in many ways. Most have ten fingers and ten toes and brain much like us. We enjoy watching them, because they often act like us. In fact, Charles Darwin serious revolution says that moneys and humans share a common ancestor. Some writer Willion Gelbert in the musical pricess idol wrote Darwin man all well-behaved at best is only a monky shave. His words sound too as music may make listeners smile, while monkeys make us smile, too.Because they are creatures full of play fool tricks. This is quite many monkeys expressions are about tricking people or play fool acts. One of these expressions is mark sharing, meaning tricks or foolish acts. The meaning is clear if you have ever watch a group of monkys play fully chasing each other, pulling tails, stealing food, doing tricks. So when the teacher says to a group of students, stop those monkey sharing right now, you know that the boys and girls are laping instead of studing. You might hear that same teacher warn a student not to monkey around with a valuable piece of equipment. You monkey around was something when you do not know what you are doing. You are touching or playing something you should leave alone. Also you can monkey around when you feel like doing something, but have no firm idea of what to do. For example, you tell your friend you are going to spend the day monky around with your car, when you do not have any job or goal in mind,it's just a way to pass the time. Monkey business usually means secret, maybe illegal activities. A new report may say there is a monkey business seem involved in builing the new airport with some officials getting secret payments from builders. You may make a monkey out of someone when you make that person like foolish. Some people make a monkey out of theirselves by acting foolish or silly, if one monkey has fun, imagine how much fun a barrel of monkeys can have. If you friend says he had more fun than a barrel of monkeys at your party, you know that he had a really good time. Monkey suits are coming names for clothes or uniform, soliders wear. In earlier years, in many American cities, you would find man playing music hand organs on the street. Dancing to the mosic would the man's small monkey, dress in a tight fitting colorful jacket similar to a military solider uniform, so people began to call a military uniform a money suit.
