The Monkey Shakespeare Simulator
Hey, ACW, have I got a statistical probability problem for you!

The question: can a hundred monkeys with a hundred computers eventually produce Shakespeare?

What is absoutely amazing about this, is that someone actually gave them money to do this.
Defending the expenditure, a lecturer said the filmed experiment made very stimulating and fascinating viewing and was cheaper to produce than reality TV, but there was no sign of Shakespeare.
