Monkey jokes are a type of joke that is often used in comedy routines. They are often told in an animal-based style, and they usually involve monkeys. The jokes generally use puns or wordplay to make the audience laugh.
We don’t know what it is, but there’s something pretty funny about monkeys. From their cheeky faces, the funny noises they make or their generally mischievous ways, there’s plenty to giggle at. It’s no wonder we’ve found endless jokes about monkeys to keep you entertained.
Of course, there’s much more to these amazing animals than their entertainment value. There’s tons of interesting stuff worth learning about primates. Did you know, for example, that there are over 260 different species of monkey? Or that every kind of monkey can be separated into two categories: the New World Monkeys and the Old World Monkeys? New World Monkeys live in South America and have strong tails that they use to hold onto things. Old World monkeys live in Asia and Africa and you can tell them apart by their nostrils, which face downwards.
Okay, on to the jokes – enjoy!

Monkey Story Jokes
WHO was driving?…
A police officer came upon a terrible wreck where the driver and passenger had been killed. As he looked upon the wreckage a little monkey came out of the brush and hopped around the crashed car. The officer looked down at the monkey and said “I wish you could talk.”
The monkey looked up at the officer and shook his head up and down.
“You can understand what I’m saying?” asked the officer.
Again, the monkey shook his head up and down.
“Well, did you see this?”
“Yes,” motioned the monkey.
The monkey pretended to have a can in his hand and turned it up by his mouth.
“They were drinking?” asked the officer.
The monkey pinched his fingers together and held them to his mouth.
“They were smoking marijuana?”
“Now wait, you’re saying your owners were drinking, and smoking marijuana before they wrecked.”
“What were you doing during all this?”
“Driving” motioned the monkey.
