Why do Monkeys have Fingers?

A myth submitted to the site by Sarah

A Jungle, Africa

Long, long ago a bunch of humans were walking through the forest when night came. They had been walking for over 20 hours and decided to stop for a rest. They were woken up by a wizard with a sack flung over his back. He grabbed a bottle out of the sack and told each person to drink one drop of the liquid. Little did they know that he was Wimbleweather the evil Wizard of Wishton. So each and every human drank a drop of the liquid. The liquid contained water, 500 strands of monkey hair and monkey poop.

So after another 23 hours of walking a lady named Mabel Cook screamed, “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I’M GROWING HAIR AND I’M ONLY 20! YUCK! IT’S BROWN! GROSSSSSSSS!”
“What’s wrong with growing hair? Don’t you start growing hair when you’re born,” said a guy named Norman Shufflebottom.
“Well,” Mabel Cook said very confused, “I’m not exactly growing hair on my head. I’M GROWING IT ON MY ARMS AND LEGS TOO!”
2 minutes later……………..
Everybody is running round screaming out, “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! WE’RE GROWING HAIR! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” Then they stopped and said, “I wonder who did this?”
“I think I know,” said Mabel Cook, “it was that wizard that gave us that potion.”
“Yeah. We look really ugly, but at least we still have our fingers. Do all of you realise that we are MONKEY’S?” said Norman Shufflebottom.
