Monkeys fail to write Shakespeare

In an effort to recreate the works of the Bard, experimenters at a UK university gave six monkeys a computer. "But after a month, the Sulawesi crested macaques had only succeeded in partially destroying the machine, using it as a lavatory, and mostly typing the letter 's'."

The results of the experiment have been published as Notes Towards The Complete Works of Shakespeare.
