image for Monkey spotted shopping in Ikea
A cartoon of Charles Darwin as an Ape, not Darwin the Monkey.

A small monkey wearing a sheepskin coat was spotted shopping in a branch of Ikea in Toronto. Shoppers were surprised and shocked by the sight.

"It was just a small monkey. I thought at first it was a little person in a mask." Mario Tomlin said. 'The monkey was a bit startled when some of the kids thought that it was an elf from Santa's Grotto."

After some commotion the monkey was escorted off the premises by police and taken to an animal sanctuary.

"He's an amazing little chap." Daria Wheelwright who runs the sanctuary said "The police bought him here after picking him up at Ikea and within an hour he had put together three Billy Bookcases that we have had sitting around the office for months. No one else in the office could work out the instructions."

Following a full check up the monkey who has been named Darwin in honor of the man who wrote 'On the origin on Species' the book that first identified our common ancestry with Apes has been released. He returned to the Ikea store and has started offering his services to people who are buying furniture.

"His expertise in putting furniture together is amazing." Thor Hilburg from Ikea's Canadian Head Office said "We have never seen anyone as skilled in putting our furniture together. In fact we are hoping to offer Darwin a job going store to store to set up displays of new ranges across Canada."

Darwin himself said in a statement. "Oooo eee K EEE!"
