I Think We Have a Winner

I think we have a winning response regarding Oorah's Monkey from Aaron from L.A.:

You've all overlooked the obvious.The word for monkey in Hebrew is Kof, which in gematria comes out to 186.The word Kesef" or money comes out to 160.The difference is 26,which is a common donation among Persian and other Jews, since that is also the gematria yud-K-Vav-k. The donor is obviously a Persian Jew trying to get a monkey off his back.I'm surprised no one else thought of it.

Thank you for laughing.They say there's a special place in Gan Eden for jokesters.My work in L.A. is rather serious and this helps me cope.By the way,my word verification was "schisce"...no joke!(but it could be).

Didn't Ohr Nava have a horse in their Chinese auction?

A horse isn't a monkey. :)
