Even with lots of time, could the monkeys at the typewriters ever type something Shakespearean?

String theory says yes.

I think about the monkeys every time I somehow fix a computer glitch by seemingly random keystrokes or wild ideas, and afterwards I can't explain how it worked. So I dunno...given enough monkeys...and enough time...I mean how hard is Shakespeare, anyway?

I don't think they would either. Still,I think even getting all those monkeys to sit & type for any extended length of time (even if it's complete gibberish) is an accomplishment all on its own.

the farthest they could get is maybe three words that actually are in English
