Nothing brightens up a dull Ikea shopping trip, like a monkey in a Del Boy-style sheepskin coat roaming the aisles

So discovered shoppers in a Toronto branch of the Swedish furniture store yesterday, and since then the monkey joy has gone global, thanks to a variety of silly internet memes. One image combines a snap of the well-wrapped up Rhesus Macaque with another news-story-turned-internet-sensation, the botched fresco Jesus. Our favourite, however is the 'Who wore it best?' image from perkycarrot's Instagram which compares the Del Boy monkey with two other sheep-skin coat wearing heartthrobs; Ryan Gosling and Jared Leto back in his My So Called Life heyday.
