Two monkeys argue over a banana and which of them should have it, eventually finding the solution is to share it. The text is totally minimal, consisting only of the words ‘Banana’ and ‘Please’. The humour in this story lies in reading the body language and facial expressions of the protagonists and interpreting the use of punctuation and font style in which the words appear in speech balloons.
