  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 127. The noun phrase today is

  • monkey business. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If we say that there is

  • some monkey business or we suspect monkey business, it refers to either

  • foolish, mischievous, or dishonest activities. Okay. Let's continue. The

  • origin of monkey business is originally from Bengali. It was a Bengali phrase. It

  • is believed the British picked it up when they occupied India. A number of

  • temples were often populated by monkeys. Of, of course who do not have the best

  • behavior. They would often steal things from humans, poop and urinate everywhere.

  • Yeah. I've actually gone to a few temples where there are monkeys around

  • and I've heard of cases too. I think I heard of case I remember in Malaysia. I

  • remember another girl I met who was travelling one time and she actually got

  • bit by a monkey. I actually seen teeth marks on her arm. She said the monkey was

  • trying to steal stuff from her she tried to pull back and the monkey actually bit

  • her on her arm. So they have been known to do this. So they poo poo and pee pee.

  • They climb over sacred objects. They steal things. So this is the idea. That is

  • why we say monkey business. Okay. Yeah. They would often steal things from humans,

  • poop and urinate everywhere climb over sacred statues and objects. Any

  • mischievous behavior became to be called monkey business or started to be

  • called monkey business. Okay. Good. So anyway, we

  • have other three examples to show just how we will use this phrase. Something

  • doesn't seem right. I think there must be some monkey business going on here. You

  • often hear people say there must be monkey business going on. Something's

  • wrong something. In this case, they probably mean something

  • dishonest or something that's not quite right. Well, let's look at number two.

  • Every time I step out of the classroom, when I return I am sure to find some

  • monkey business was going on. Basically was happening when I returned. Yeah. If

  • you've ever seen the old movie "Kindergarten Cop. " I know it's really,

  • really old now with Arnold Schwarzenegger. When he was taking care

  • of the kindergarten class and he couldn't control them. They were just

  • going like wild animals all over the place. You know, so yeah sometimes if

  • there's no teacher there long enough, you know the younger the class is the more

  • likely there might be some monkey business going on, while the teacher

  • steps out of the room. Okay. Good and let's look at number three here. The

  • numbers don't add up. A lot of money is missing. I think there must be some

  • monkey business going on. All right. Again this is a case where probably,

  • probably something dishonest ... money is missing. Perhaps somebody stole it or

  • something doesn't seem quite right. Okay. Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. I hope it

  • was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
