HAVEN'T YOU ALWAYS WANTED A MONKEY?  "Monkey found alone at Toronto Ikea, wearing coat."

    Canada is sweet. Any time I've seen a monkey at the Atlanta IKEA, they're always wearing an SEC school t-shirt and baggy cargo shorts.

    off-topic, who is teaching reporters to write like this:
    "It must be somebody’s pet because he was wearing a jacket," the Ikea
    spokesperson said earlier, referring to the monkey, which was wearing a
    miniature, brown, shearling-type jacket.

    And Exhibit A:
    Fortuntaly [sic], the woman was ultimately allowed to vote. "The woman was ultimately allowed to vote," the local report reads.

    This story wins the Internet and all other media forever.

  3. I'm waiting for the Monkey See post on this.

  4. I'm just appreciative of your Barenaked Ladies reference.

    I'm glad it had a coat. Toronto can get some bitter cold snaps this time of year.

    I'm the closest we have to an ALOTT5MA correspondent in Toronto, and it was a giddy, monkey filled afternoon. The fact that he was wearing a little shearling coat just made the story. Took about 30 minutes for an @ikeamonkey account to start.

  7. I love that it didn't take long for the Mayoral #ikeamonkey2013 hashtag to appear either.

  8. The decision of the Maple Leafs to grow "lockout beards" proved unfortunate.

  9. Did we ever find out if the monkey was wearing a green dress under that jacket? And was it a cruelty-free green dress?
