A guy walks into a bar with his pet monkey. He orders a drink and while
he's drinking it, the monkey runs around all over the place. The monkey
grabs some olives off the bar and eats them, then grabs some sliced limes
and eats them, then jumps up on the pool table, grabs the cue ball, sticks
it in his mouth, and swallows it whole.
The bartender yells at the guy, "Did you see what your monkey just did?"
The guy says, "No, what?" "He just ate the cue ball off my pool table,
whole!" says the bartender. "Yeah, that doesn't surprise me," replies the
patron. "He eats everything in sight, the little bastard. I'll pay for
the cue ball and stuff." He finishes his drink, pays his bill, and leaves.
Two weeks later he's in the bar again, and he has his monkey with him. He
orders a drink and the monkey starts running around the bar again. While
the man is drinking his drink, the monkey finds a maraschino cherry on the
bar. He grabs it, sticks it up his ass, pulls it out, and eats it. The
bartender is disgusted. "Did you see what your monkey did now?", he asks.
"No, what?", responds the patron. "Well, he stuck a maraschino cherry up
his ass, then pulled it out, and ate it!" says the barkeeper. "Yeah,"
replies the patron, "he still eats everything in sight, but ever since he
ate that damn cue ball, he measures everything first!"
