Default Infinite Monkeys and Infinite Typewriters

LONDON - Give an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters, the theory goes, and they will eventually produce the works of Shakespeare.

Then, they waited.

At first, said Phillips, "the lead male got a stone and started bashing the hell out of it.

Read this earlier on wired, and I was about to post it a few seconds before I read this, heh. Anywho, it seems pretty interesting but if you read what they actually typed - it makes sense to the untrained eye.
