Here is an argument. Please take all the time necessary to make up your mind about it...

No monkey is a giraffe;
No giraffe is an elephant;
No elephant is a squid;
No squid is a monkey;
Joe is either an elephant, a monkey or a squid;
Joe is neither an elephant nor a giraffe;
Therefore, Joe is a monkey.
