  1. tape monkey

    A junior system administrator, one who might plausibly be assigned to do physical swapping of tapes and subsequent storage. When a backup needs to be restored, one might holler “Tape monkey!” (Compare one-banana problem) Also used to dismiss jobs not worthy of a highly trained sysadmin's ineffable talents: “Cable up her PC? You must be joking — I'm no tape monkey.”
