Would you like to buy a monkey?

 From The (very funny) Bloggess a hilarious recounting of a thrift store purchaese:

"Last weekend at a thrift shop I found a small, stuffed monkey, which seemed to have some sort of snout leprosy and would probably murder us in our sleep.
I named him “Copernicus”."
