Usually the monkey is on your back

Not this time:

A man has been questioned by police at LaGuardia airport in New York after smuggling a monkey onto a flight from Florida by hiding it under his hat.

Passengers spotted the animal when it climbed out and perched on the man's ponytail, Spirit Airlines spokeswoman Alison Russell told reporters. Ms Russell said the monkey — a marmoset — spent the remainder of the flight in the man's seat and was well-behaved.

Didn't Johnny Carson warn us about marmosets on our heads?

Gotta give the guy props. Most people are all hat, no monkey.
