Kipling writes that “they would all rush together in mobs and shout: “There is no one in the jungle so wise and clever and strong and gentle as the Bandar-log (42).” ” The Bandar-log monkeys are the complete opposite of their descriptions of themselves, and the monkeys also brag about the tasks that they do not accomplish. Baloo says that “they boast and chatter and pretend that they are a great people about to do great affairs in the jungle (Kipling, 31).” Today’s bullies and the Bandar-log monkeys believe that they are better than everyone else, and they both think that the things they do are something to be proud

He shows up when you are very close to the deadline and there’s a risk of for example public embarrassment. So he makes you finish the assignment. He got a lot of mails from listeners who related a lot, but they were actually very sad because what the monkey had done to them. Because “The panic monster” only shows up when there are deadlines, yet in real life, there are many situations that don’t have deadlines.
They believe that the community being exactly the same is alright, because they are taught that it is all for the greater good. The community in Harrison Bergeron, is treated more like prisoners than a civilization. They are forced not to move or think they are special in any way. Anyone that is unique or smarter than the average person is forced to wear a handy cap which, “every twenty seconds or so, would send out some sharp noise to keep people like George from taking unfair advantage of their bran” (Rand 1). The handicaps are a perfect example of how the smallest things are met with brutal force and
He wants to be called Great Sage. "You may be a king- you may be a deity-but you are still a monkey“ (page 16). The answer of the guard makes him feel that he is an ordinary monkey.

Thus, the hair makes D-503 question his role in society and position in whether he fully conformsfidelity to OneState rule. D-503’s frequent concerns over his hairy appearance suggests that individuality makes him feel isolated from other Numbers, such as when he describes himself as having “monkey’s hands”.

Monkeys are dreadfully loud like me, so that is one reason I chose it to my last animal. Also, people dread taking them anywhere in public since they are obnoxiously loud, and they devise commotions. Just like me, they become even louder when they are told to be quiet. Anytime I proceed to Billings to shop or anything like that, my sister and I are terribly loud and we cause commotions, and we either laugh until we can’t breathe or we fight. Another reason I chose the monkey, is I always laugh and act silly.
