RIP: 25 Things That Need to Be Retired from 2012

7. The Ikea Monkey News Cycle

A.k.a. Stupid News.
Why? Because nothing this stupid deserves to make every television news program and website and newspaper over the course of the day. It's a monkey. Wearing a coat. In an Ikea. It's like a bad Saturday Night Live sketch, and we're letting it seep into our brains like it's something we should care about. New Rule: The next time a monkey shows up in an Ikea wearing a dapper winter coat, we should only care if he's holding people hostage inside.
