I've played the MI games since I was little, but one thing I never understood was why using Jojo the Monkey on a water pump would suffice for shutting it off. I remember that the only way I solved it was by saying, "Okay, this pump HAS to do something; I'm just gonna go down the list and use everything in my inventory."

Did I miss an in-joke, or a reference to something else, or... something?

Sure, it's obvious in hindsight.

I doubt that anybody ever got it first time through without just resorting to trial and error, or using a guide/hint.

Seriously?

The monkey was the first thing I tried it just seemed right. Lateral thinking. That said, it took me ages to figure out the gamblers club thing, so it wasn't as though I found everything easy.
If you can read this, well done. Not changing this sig until something happens whenever but not before never.

at school back in the day we used to refer to anything with a really arse about way of doing it as 'Monkey Island Logic' it was funny to hear people say it who have no idea what monkey island is.
