Well, this raises several questions:
1) How do we know the monkeys are typing randomly? What if they are actually typing out a 'monkey' language?
2) How many of these monkeys are actually the literary equivalent of William Shakespeare?
3) What if Shakespeare plagarized 'his' works from the monkeys in the first place? (Imagine the implications of that one!)

Shakespeare: To be, or not to be? Bacon: Tobie, or not Tobie? Monkey: Barbary, or chimpanzee?

That is the question... :-)
