A tourist walked into a pet store and was looking at the animals on
While he was there, a Command Sergeants Major (CSM) from the local
airfield walked in and said to the shopkeeper, "I'll take a 6114 monkey,
The man nodded, went to a cage at the side of the store and took out a
monkey. He put a collar and leash on the animal and handed it the CSM
saying, "That'll be $1,000". The CSM paid and left with the monkey.
Surprised, the tourist went to the shopkeeper and said, "That was a very
expensive monkey. Most of them are only a few hundred dollars. Why did that
one cost so much?"
The shopkeeper answered, "Ah, that 6114 monkey, he can rig aircraft flight
controls, score 300 on the Army APFT, set up a perimeter defense and
perform the duties of any warrant officer with no back talk or
complai nts. It's well worth the money."
The tourist spotted a monkey in another cage. "That one's even more
expensive--$10,000! What does it do?"
"Oh, that one is a "Maintenance Supervisor" monkey; it can instruct at
all levels of maintenance, supervise maintenance at the unit, intermediate,
and Depot level, and even do most of the paperwork. A very useful monkey
indeed," replied the shopkeeper.
The tourist looked around a little longer and found a third monkey in a
cage. The price tag read, "$50,000". The shocked tourist exclaimed,
"That one costs more than all the others put together! What in the world
could it do?"
"Well, I've never actually seen him do anything but drink beer and play
with`his dick, but his papers say he's a Pilot".
