ABOUT MONKEYS


hello guys, did you know that there is more to a monkey than a "cheeky monkey"? Well, I have a new task for you (film reviews in the post below are still welcome, though :-))
Here's a list of expressions containing the word "monkey". Choose one (only one, to give other people the chance to do their own research) and explain its meaning:

1- to monkey around
2-monkey business
3-to have a monkey on one's back
4- monkey wrench

Hello Mónica: I choose "Monkey business". I think it is the person who makes trick in his/her business, could be?

Hello Monica,
I chose the word " monkey wrench", perhaps the easier to explain.
It's the typical tool used to tighten the nuts of our sink , washbasin or dishwasher for example.
A big hug for you. See you.

Monkey business is a classic Marilyn Monroe pic. Gentlemen prefer blondes, but then I'm not a gentleman.

Hello anybody!!!
I've chosen "to have a monkey on one's back"
Do you have a drug addiction in order to be the most happy person in a group??? If you have answered yes, consequently, unfortunately, you have a monkey on your back. ;-(
