Just like Obama's birthplace, the true origin of the saying is not known.

The famous three wise monkeys symbol, representing "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil," will be changed in view of the media's attitude towards President Barack Obama and his carte blanche attitude and actions.

The symbol of three wise monkeys was created in Japan in the 17th century and they are named Mizaru, who covers his eyes and sees no evil, Kikazaru, who covers his ears to hear no evil, and Iwazaru, who covers his mouth to speak no evil. While the saying has been attributed by some to Confucius or may be of Chinese origin in the 8th century, the monkey symbol and saying has grown to cover the world. Even Mahatma Gandhi, who owned very few possessions, had a small statue of the monkeys.

From now on, the monkeys will say "See no evil about Obama, hear no evil about Obama, report no evil about Obama." The changes will be made in all factories that produce the monkeys (often made as small statues or as paperweights).

When asked about the change in the statue, the new President of the United States said that he was more than pleased and was happy that the manufacturers were now falling in line with the media.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
