"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.

Well, Duh.

Well at least they caught it, so it's not on the lam anymore.

ms. man & I were actually at that very store today at about the same time too, but never saw the little fuzzy guy. Poor thing, now he's getting taken away from his human (who cared enough to get him that fine coat) because he's not allowed to be a pet. So he'll be placed in a zoo, and never get to wear that coat again...

I think it's more likely the monkey works there

Long ago in my car audio days a guy dropped off his giant Chevy Crew Cab Dually to have an alarm system put in.

He described what he wanted protected (glass, doors, ignition kill, topper door, etc), hopped in his ride and split.

I was working alone and had blocked his truck out for most of the day.

About the time I finally came around to start with the topper contacts/wiring, I pop open the topper door, drop the gate and look up to see a sort of dog kennel with a big farking, red-assed, long-fanged baboon in it.

The thing must have been drugged because he only sat there, fingers gripping the bars, without moving a muscle, his eyes never leaving me.

I never found out why this guy had a baboon, but Im pretty sure he didnt mention his leaving with me just to fark with me.

It seemed like the sort of thing a guy hauling around a drugged baboon would do.

it's the meatballs with gravy and those berries (Lingol berries?). Whatever they are, they're eff'n irresistible.
 
2012-12-09 11:30:14 PM
Maybe the monkey was the lookout.
 
2012-12-09 11:30:59 PM
Shoppers eventually alerted Ikea staff, who then contacted animal services.

I'm guessing the staff didn't possess the intelligence, much like the monkey, to get on the intercom and ask shoppers in the store if someone was missing a monkey....

/at least the monkey has an excuse - it can't farking talk!

They're called lingonberries.

This is across the street from where I work. If I get to my desk and there's a monkey there... again...

I arrived about 10 minutes after they caught him. I was quite upset they didn't let him get comfy in one of the living rooms up on the second floor.

I also work across the street, so I'll stop by tomorrow to see if they've got him working the lunch shift the cafeteria.

It's because he hated cleaning bathrooms.

That would explain my experience at the Portland IKEA yesterday. Buncha monkeys in the store wandering around the place.

Do monkeys have property? I'm not sure that I've ever heard of a monkey treating an object as property. I suppose that if they ahve teddy bears and toys they might consider a coat to be property and have a concept of ownership, or some other attachment.

Speaking of lingonberries, I wonder which of the monkey's owners is in charge of changing his diaper?
