I have read somewhere that the expression (approximately, in Japanese or another
language) 'See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" came first, and that
monkeys became associated with it because each of the clauses phonetically
resembles a word meaning 'monkey' in that language. Anyone know more about this,
uh, tale?
