Tweeters fall in love with coat-wearing Ikea monkey

A monkey, a fancy coat, and an Ikea in Canada. That’s how it all started:

The Ikea Monkey has a name and it is not Billy or Johan, but fittingly, Darwin.

Toronto’s Animal Services says Darwin, a rhesus macaque monkey, which was found in a shearling-like winter coat at a northern Toronto Ikea Sunday, is seven months old and his owners are originally from Montreal.

Much like the fancily clad primate, the story has run amok on Twitter.

Of course, not everyone sees the humor/adorableness of the situation.

It didn’t take long for the Ikea monkey to get a Twitter handle and a few thousand followers. @Ikeamonkey has officially arrived.
