Monkey knows no ginger

Posted by Seetha on June 29, 2007

There is a phrase "Monkey knows no ginger" which, as per me, means that a monkey won't be able to appreciate the significance of ginger. In a broad sense, it is used when someone can't appreciate something.

Could anybody let me know if this is really what it means?
