When will you post it? I can't wait to find out. I never really thought about it before.

Here is a link to the history of the monkey wrench and what it looks like, etc.

And this talks about the phrase, throwing a monkey wrench:

But we all already knew what it means. I am curious about the origins of the phrase. Anyone?
