A lorry driver breaks down on the M6 with a cargo of live monkeys on board, bound for Chester Zoo. They need to be delivered by 9:00 am and the driver fears he will get the sack if they don’t get there on time.
He decides to try and thumb a lift for his monkeys, and eventually an Irish lorry driver pulls over.
“Where are you going ?” asks the Irish chap.
“Do us a favour mate and take these monkeys to Chester Zoo for me” says the driver, “and here’s a hundred quid for your troubles.”
“Happy days,” says the Irish fella, loads the monkeys onto his truck and gets on his way.
The lorry driver goes about trying to fix his truck. He’s still there a few hours when he notices the Irish fella coming back down the motorway, still with all the chimps on board.
Panicking, he flags him down again. “What are you playing at,” he fumes, “I told you to take them to Chester Zoo!”
“I did,” says the Irish fella, “but there’s still fifty quid left so now I’m taking them to Alton Towers”.
