How Are We to Understand the Expression: Third Monkey On Noah’s Ark?

Of course, this is not biblical by any means. However, the common phrase I have heard is, “fight like the third monkey on Noah’s ark.” However, the full expression is “fight like you're the third monkey trying to get on Noah’s ark.” The expression refers to the fact that Noah only took animals in pairs, so if there was a third monkey on the ark, he must have fought very hard to get on the ark.
