BANANAS THE MONKEY
Man with basket: "Hello"
Monkey: "Hi my name is Mr. Bananas!" saying highly pitched and very enthusiastically.
Man with basket: "Hi" saying cautiously. 'Wow this woman has the potential to be a fantastic ventriloquist.'
Monkey: "Do you have any bananas in that basket of your's?"
Man with basket: "Yes, I believe I do Mr. Bananas." (he digs through the basket not finding any bananas) "Well I'll be a monkey's uncle, I gave my friend the last one."
Monkey: "Whaaat! You're related to me?"
Man with basket: "No, that is just an expression."
Monkey: "Aww man!"
Man with basket: "Sorry, oh your leg is attached to your stomach. Here let me fix that for you." (the man pins back on the monkey's leg in the correct spot)
Monkey: "Hey, will you look at that! Thank you Sir."
Man with basket: "You are very welcome"
Clown: "Thank you Sir."
Man with basket: "You are welcome, here let me give you my card. I know a friend that makes puppets for ventriloquists if you are interested. Also if I may, can I suggest when you are making your puppets talk try not to move your lips."
Clown: "Okay, thank you."
Man with basket: "Nice to meet you but I better go back to the Liberal Arts Picnick tables."
I appreciate you coming over on your lunch hour, doc. He says the pain is a little higher and more to the left.
Class Reunions - There's a reason why you haven't spoken to some classmates for over 20 years.

IUPUI Research History Moment:
The lesser known B.F. Skinner picnic basket experiment established the foundation for rhesus monkey partner embarrassment research for decades to come, eventually leading to the pivotal discovery of the "I'm with stupid" t-shirt.
This color would look fab with my basket.
She definitely gets her looks from your side of the family. She has your hair and my side of the family is a little more colorful.
Cut! Send this scene back to the writers. Have them change the line to "Put the monkey lotion in the basket! Put the monkey lotion in the basket!"
What ya know Harry!! I thought I would never see you again after you left school.
You're never too old to be "clowning around."
Clown: "I was thining of naming him George, you know after George Washington. What do you think?"
Man: "No he looks more like a Richard as in Nixion."
Never, ever touch another person's monkey!
After failing it's accreditation, the IUPUI Clown Studies program ended in 1985.
Hey mister, quit clowning around with my monkey. That's MY job.
Wow!! those Orange socks look trendy
Joker - The Early Years.
Clowns ... Creepy back then, too.
Hey Big Guy, DON'T TOUCH ME! Why do you want to touch me? Yikes, I'm not going to be your BASKET MONKEY!
Hey, don't give me any grief about my monkey OR my wardrobe! YOU'RE the one carrying a basket!
"Well, you're no Toto but as you can see our group is already a little bit 'off'. So, let's get back on that yellow brick road and go find the Wizard!"
