Funny Monkey Pictures
Funny monkey pictures, as well as amusing animal pictures, are a source of amusement for many people. One reason funny monkey pictures can be so amusing is that monkeys tend to be very similar to humans in some ways. Due to this trait, we tend to find them interesting and amusing. Aside from just their appearance being a bit similar, even their actions can closely resemble that of humans, such as running on two feet, as well as using items as tools and thinking things out before acting. Someapes can even recognize specific human words.
Monkeys get caught in lots of funny monkey pictures because of their playful, innocent nature. One can say they are childlike and free-spirited. Monkeys have also been caught in funny monkey pictures while playing pranks on each other, other animals, and even human beings.
A very famous monkey that people should recognize is Curious George, made famous for his books full of humorous antics. The books show several funny monkey pictures involving George, and are created for children, helping to teach them good life values such as sharing and helping others. George was always very helpful to others even to a fault (although also mischevious), and by using Curious George in this way, he is not only a comedian but also in some ways a teacher, which leads to a different perspective on monkeys.
In some nationalities and religions monkeys are looked upon as almost divine. One famous piece of art which some may consider to be included with funny monkey pictures is actually a very deep and serious piece of art carved above the door to a shrine in Japan. The carving depicts three monkeys, Mizaru covering his eyes, Mikazaru covering his ears and Mazaru covering his mouth, together the symbolize “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil”. Sometimes a fourth monkey may be present representing “do no evil.” One can easily see how this can be related to the innocent and playful nature of monkeys, yet the carving and teaching is more of a metaphor relating to our own nature as human beings.
