„Cover me, when I sleep
Cover me, when I breathe
You throw your pearls before the swine
Make the monkey blind
Cover me, darling please.
Monkey, monkey, monkey.
Don't you know you're going to shock the monkey?“

—  Peter Gabriel, Shock The Monkey

„When you go to the zoo and you see a monkey throwing poop, you go, "that's what monkeys do, what are you gonna do?" But what I wish the media would do more frequently is say "bad monkey."“

—  Jon Stewart American political satirist, writer, television host, actor, media critic and stand-up comedian 1962

But what I wish the media would do more frequently is say "bad monkey." Charlie Rose interview, September 29, 2004
