Man, I shouldn't laugh, as really I feel quite sorry for the poor beast, but man this did make me titter.....

It's hard to imagine a more random situation to be presented with when shopping in Ikea. Glad the irresponsible owners got fined.

This is entertaining. I heard that store is trying to talk to the higher-ups at Ikea to allow them to keep it as a pet.

Of course it's quickly become a Meme......



There are some animals I see no reason to own, and monkeys of any type are one of them with the exception of those trained as service animals.

I know how you feel. People shouldn't be keeping monkeys as pets and all, but look at that picture of the monkey in a jacket larger than him. How is it possible not to laugh? His face is just priceless.

Once in a while one of them gets justice by face eating.

Even he knows how ridiculous he looks.

Wasn't the person who got their face eaten by that chimpanzee in Connecticut the neighbor of the owner, and not the owner herself?

I was about 2 minutes away from that Ikea on Sunday and was going to go around the time the monkey was sighted but I had other stuff to do at a mall. Had I gone I would have seen this supposedly world famous event LOL.

Yes...

Note to self: Do not visit friends with chimpanzees.

Maybe. The point is that you should not play with animals that can kill you. Get a cat, they only want to kill you.

The animal was taken from her and is now in a primate sanctuary N/E of Toronto. The owner is seeking legal advice to get her "child" back. Yes, she thinks of it as her kid.

Indeed. He looks like a used-car dealer on a day when no-one was buying.

Brilliant. 

And chalk this one up under "headlines that have never appeared in any publication before, and probably never will again."

Maybe the Simian will have better look pronouncing and differentiating those weird Sweedish names for their products and I bet the monkey in question has an easier time assembeling the furniture. With Ikea everything has to be put together.

I think all Ikea store should have a few monkeys running around, loose; (it might liven the place up a bit)
