the

finite monkeys

theorem is a

corollary to the

infinite monkeys theorem which states that if you have a

finite number of

monkeys in a room with a

finite number of

typewriters, after a

finite amount of time, the room will

smell awful and you'll have a lot of pieces of paper that look like this:

in other words.. a finite number of monkeys and a finite amount of time is basically useless, as far as producing great works of literature are concerned.
