    I've always heard it as,"looks like a couple of monkeys trying to f@ck a football. " when describing 2 guys trying really hard to do something so simple.

    Stopped by a friend of mine who runs a heavy haul company, new guy wanting a job is there. As the new guy crawled up in the truck and looked at all those gauges and switches. The owner looked at me and said " lord he looks like a monkey doing math problems"
