Drinking Action

A police officer came across a terrible road accident where the driver and passenger had been killed. As he gazed at the wreckage, a little monkey emerged from the trees and started hopping around the crashed car.

“Gee,” said the officer scratching his head and looking down at the monkey, “I wish you could talk.”

The monkey looked up at the officer and nodded his head.

“You mean you can understand what I’m saying?” asked the officer.

Again the monkey nodded furiously.

“Well, did you see this accident?” asked the officer.

The monkey motioned in the affirmative.

“What happened?” said the officer.

The monkey mimed a drinking action.

“They were drinking?”

The monkey nodded his head.

“What else?” continued the officer.

The monkey pinched his fingers together, held them to his mouth and rolled his eyes.

“They were smoking marijuana?”

The monkey nodded.

“Anything else?” asked the officer.

The monkey mimed a kiss.

“They were kissing too?”

The monkey nodded his head.

“So,” said the officer, “you’re saying they were drinking, smoking and kissing before they crashed the car?”

The monkey nodded.

“And what were you doing while all this was going on?”

“Driving,” mimed the monkey.
