License Plate Wisdom

There’s a travel game we play where you look at a license plate and reverse-construct an acronym to produce the letters in the plate number.

This is what led to this morning’s discussion about the Ventilation Monkeys.

The plate isn’t important anymore. What’s important is that there are tribes of wild monkeys living in the HVAC systems of many large buildings. They sneak out at night and steal pencils. They rearrange office furniture so that you always wind up with the chair with the squeaky seat. They make bananas in the break room turn brown.

Through fear.

The bananas turn brown out of fear of the ventilation monkeys. Now you know.
