The Experiment

He led the entrants in to the hall which stretched out to infinity in each direction. Each sat in front of a keyboard eagerly awaiting the bell to start. A bell rang...

In row one the third participant began typing...
nvhuev ld v dv jvs jdjbv djnv

Row three wrote in much the same vein

bjdjsnh cs c skv kv sknv ,a

nsjd nmskv jj j VSD V jd

Each of the participants feverishly typed away engaged in the task in front of them. Some stopped for a quick snack of fruit, then began again that staccato like tapping that promised messages from some heavenly ether.

The invigilator walked down Row 2,994,531 shaking his head

I cant take much more of this. This is basically gibberish.

As he walked back along the rows something made him pause. There was one experimentee who sat shaking his head looking as though he was struggling with the task. The invigilator stopped and walked over to the desk where the participant sat and peered into the screen.

He was astounded to read the following.

Dear Sir,
I know I am one out of an infinite number but I thought you might like to see this speculative entry of mine for your competition entitled experiment. I guess you could call this my experimentbdbhubshbb!!

He left the room to the sound of a flange of chimpanzees howling in derisive laughter in the way only they can. His experiment ruined, mocked by an infinite number of monkeys!!

This was certainly interesting, not to mention quite comical, but I'm not exactly sure what happened at the end.

I was engaged throughout and was tickled to find that they were monkeys, and not so dumb ones at that.

Good job.

Quite a different take on the topic at hand...And, amusing as well. I enjoyed this short and funny story. Thank you. God Bless~

This is an interesting piece. The ending made me chuckle.

You were missing punctuation here and there in the narrative.

I love it when a writer uses a new word - invigilator. Nice job!
