Ikea Monkey Watch

In December 2012 a sweet lil Japanese macaque named Darwin temporarily ruled over the Toronto Ikea wearing a teeny tiny shearling greatcloak. In the months that followed, the internet went full internet on "Ikea Monkey," devising official Ikea dressing manuals and chronicling his whereabouts with prime-cut reportage. Darwin's "mom" lost "custody" of him, but now word is she's got two new monkeys in her possession. Animal activists are already angry. Ikea has yet to make a statement. [Toronto Star; previously]
