Gentleman's Republic

This is a blog dedicated to the life, likes, and loves of the civilized gentleman.

Do you know how they catch monkeys in Africa? Hunters throw out sugar cubes so the monkeys get addicted. Then they dig narrow holes, and put in lumps of sugar. Monkey comes along, smells the sugar, sticks his hand in. But the hole’s so small that when he makes a fist, he can’t pull it back out without dropping the sugar. So the hunters are getting closer, and the monkey sees them coming. They throw their nets, and the damn monkey still won’t drop the sugar.
