look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
The monkey in the middle is the person that is in the middle of two fighting sides. This person is friends with both arguing sides and wants to stay neutral but is eventually dragged into the fight, and one of the fighting sides become mad at them.
I feel bad for John, he just wants to have fun and not get involved in drama but he always becomes the monkey in the middle.
