What about this one

I was walking down the street yesterday when I saw a monkey. The monkey was talking to a rat. I tried to listen and understand what they were saying, but the monkey was speaking monkey and the rat was speaking rat, and after a while they looked at me uncomfortably and went somewhere else.
