Quote:The mummified carcass of a monkey found in the air ducts of a century-old downtown Minneapolis department store has triggered a mystery.
The monkey quickly had his own Twitter account, the state's governor steadfastly denied any involvement, and at least one Twitter user credited the animal's recent discovery with breaking a curse that kept the Minnesota Timberwolves out of the NBA playoffs for 14 years.
The whole thing is a little bananas.
GOVERNOR SAYS HE'S INNOCENT
The monkey was found in what used to be the flagship store for the Dayton's department store chain — which was once owned by Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton's family. That prompted a reporter to ask Dayton what he knew about the monkey in the duct.
"Monkey in the Air Duct" sounds like some Kama Sutra position to me.
