…and on the 8th day, micro fiction was published on some dude's blog.

A Variation On The Infinite Monkey Theorem

Wanda was frazzled; the experiment wasn’t going well.

She was testing a variation on the infinite monkey theorem: If you give a million professional typists each a monkey and a typewriter, will they eventually type out the complete works of Shakespeare with monkeys on their backs?

Unfortunately for Wanda (and even more unfortunately for the typists), the answer seemed to be: No–it’ll just be mass hysteria involving countless hair-pullings, lacerations, and feces-flingings.

But it was PUBLISH OR PERISH, so as long as one of those dirty monkeys didn’t maul her to death, Wanda was going to find someone who would publish her findings.
