Was Shakespeare a Sulawesi Macaque monkey?

No.

But as I learned from Mad Scientist Mike Onken, some Sulawesi Macaques at the Paignton Zoo Environmental Park have been employed to see if the reverse was true, putting to the test the old adage “Give a million monkeys enough time and they will write the complete works blah blah blah adf;j;as hbanana banaba.” They’ve even got a (publicity stunt) book you can buy: Notes Towards the Complete Works of Shakespeare by Elmo, Gum, Heather, Holly, Mistletoe and Rowan (monkeys all).

Not to gloat, of course, but we have previously dealt with this very topic at length at the Star Chamber. Read this informative interview with Miles the Talking Monkey.
