He's @IKEAmonkey on Twitter and fast becoming a meme star. Tweeters were having a blast Monday morning with the tiny monkey that surprised shoppers at a Toronto IKEA.
"BREAKING: 53% of Toronto residents say they'll vote #ikeamonkey for mayor."
"Report: Lawyers are working to free #ikeamonkey. They're working pro bonobo."
According to the Toronto Star, the monkey, dressed in a faux shearling coat and diaper, was sighted in a parking garage of the IKEA on Sunday afternoon. Witnesses told the Star that the monkey -- "smaller than a cat" -- was dashing around, screaming and agitated.
