the story of monkey and the coconut

preachers told this story, it was like a joke i’d heard so many times. I don’t know where the all got it from, or whether it is true.

THe story is that the way to trap a monkey is to drill a hole in a coconut just the size of a monkey hand, and then put a rock in the coconut.

THe monkey will put its little hand in the coconut, grab the rock and then pull their hand out. THing is thought, when they are holding that rock their fist is too large to get out of the hole.

they will not let go of their wonderful surprise and the hunters will catch them

What is the risk and what is the reward?
