Monkeying Around

One of my favorite phrases for describing the ease of a given job or responsibility when someone in the House of Lime complains about the difficulty or work required is, "Listen, a trained chimp could do this!" Dear, I don't paint walls because I wouldn't do a good job....(insert phrase as my response). Mom, it takes too long to clean my room...(insert phrase). Why do we have to clear the dinner table?...(insert phrase). It has been suggested that my comparison could be damaging to fragile egos. In an attempt to be fair I have decided to go up against a chimp and see how I perform in comparison.

Your Final Quiz Score: 35 right out of a possible 60
The Monkey's Final Score: 14 right out of 60

You asserted your intellectual superiority brilliantly! The monkey is now left contemplating his own inferiority. Where others have failed to claim the mantel of unequivocal dominance over lesser species, you have truly succeeded! Congratulations on besting the ape and reaffirming the capabilities of the human mind. You have done mankind proud.

You scored in the 84th percentile.

Well, it would seem I don't need to start eating bananas or sidling up to short, hairy guys in the hopes that they'll begin grooming me. I'm quite relieved.

Heh! Congratulations. I would hate to know a trained chimp could blog. :)

Sheri said...

oh thanks for this one. I took the quiz and realized the chimp is smarter than the chump that I am. How embarassing. You did good!

Trini...
I would be more than happy to pick the fleas out of your magnificent locks!
...And fetch you some bananas.
xox

Sounds like a fun quiz. I'll be swinging over there to try it, right after my morning banana.

Fragile ego being what it is... I think I'll pass on this test... Also, have you ever seen a chimp paint? Clean a room? or Clear dishes? I'm not sure how much training would be needed to carry out these tasks... uh, successfully.

furiousBall said...

you're a cute monkey, just don't throw poop at me

barman said...

OK, that test is rigged. Maybe it is just something I made up in my head or something and not back by any truth... I thought that score for Random Trivia for you was way to low.

Common Lime, it is just added grooming, not all your grooming.

I suppose I need to head over and take that quiz. I can see it now, the lowest score in History and Geography ever but science, maybe i can redeme myself there.

i think i had a couple of teachers in school who could have been bested by a monkey.(at least personality wise if not intellectually!)

Breazy said...

I will leave the testing to you and the others because I really suck in geography so I know the chimp will win there.

Hope you are having a great day and thanks for the laughs!

Mona said...

LOL! You say 'Fragile egos'?

& I always thought that egos were fat & bloated....:D

You are so funny :D !!

I'm sorry I was late for commenting on your last post...Came in Just after being out for two days & feel dog tired!

Take care!

mssolitaire said...

LMAO!!!! This is brilliance!!! I love it!

lecram said...

The sliver of difference in the Science/Technology scores made me LOL! Cheers!

coopernicus said...

If I don a Chewbacca suit and walk on my knees, does that count???

coopernicus said...

Oh, and apparently, I'm a moron...the summary listed all my scores as zero...

Craver Vii said...

I did not do as well as I might have expected, so I picked up the chair and threw it at the monitor, screaming until everyone walked away from me.

Now, I'm just content to sit in the corner avoiding eye contact.

BTExpress said...

Me and the monkey each got a zero. I think this quiz is rigged.

Seamus said...

Uhhh, don't take the Famous Monkey Acrobatics and Zipline Quiz! ;)~

Craver Vii said...

Yeah, zero. That's what I got! I'm so mad I could fling poo at the spectators on the other side of my bars!
