a mother finds out her eldest daughter is doing marijuana.

mother: Anna, you know, I don't really see the point of paying for your private education anymore, since, in my experience, once you have started on marijuana, the snow-balling effect won't stop until you crash and you will just keep going deeper. What i can do if you want, is send you to continue your education at the local monkey-house; Ecole Secondaire St Luc is right next door to our place.

Anna: roflmao. I started actually, smoking pot, because I broke up with my boyfriend Evan. And because of my breakup, Ill either crash, as you mentioned, or I guess I can check myself into a monkey-house, since I am just so bloody depressed, I feel like removing myself from society.

A foul place where visitors have been inside for so long that they no longer notice the stench.
Chris, from Project Runway: "Check out my fur-inspired line of clothing, it's covered in human hair!"
Tim Gunn (politely gagging): "I have this refrain about the monkey house at the zoo. When you first enter into the monkey house, you think, ‘Oh my god this place stinks!’ And then after you’re there for 20 minutes you think, ‘it’s not so bad’ and after you’re there for an hour it doesn’t smell at all. And anyone entering the monkey house freshly thinks, ‘this stinks!’ You've been living in the monkey house."
