Whilst he was there, another customer walked in and said to the shopkeeper,
"Can I have an art Monkey please".  The shopkeeper nodded, went over to a
cage at the side of the shop and took out a monkey.  He fitted a collar and

the shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the others put together!  What
on earth does it do?".  The shopkeeper looked up and replied, "Well, I
haven't actually seen it do anything, but it says it's a producer."
