Buy an Ektorp if you want to sleep on ektorp.

Ikea has been facing a very Ikea like problem of late. No, not an overabundance of meatballs. I said Ikea-like problem, not delicious problem. Apparently, a couple of Belgian teens have been sleeping in Ikea, made a video documenting their slumber party, and influenced at least 10 other teens to do the same.

C’mon, teens. We live in a society of laws, and we don’t have time for your feel-good, devil may care attitude. Don’t put your shades, when I’m talking to you.

The BBC reported that if these sleepover don’t stop, Ikea will be forced to call your moth—er, police. They’ll be forced to call the police. In fact, they already called the cps on two 15-year-old Swedish girls, charging them with trespassing. They, apparently, never even made it out of the cupboards that they were hiding in because they were too afraid of setting off the alarms.

Ikea spoke to the BBC and said, "We appreciate that people are interested in Ikea and want to create fun experiences. However, the safety and security of our co-workers and customers is our highest priority and that's why we do not allow sleepovers in our stores. Maybe needless to say that the fun in it is overrated. A long night of sitting still, only to then risk getting into trouble with the law.”

There you have it, teens. Stop causing so much darn mischief and start studying or something.

Ikea Makes Sure They Have What You Need by Changing the Names of Their Products to the Most Common Google Searches

Fyrkantig, Sparsam, Dagstorp, Grundtal. Unless you speak Swedish, these words can only mean one thing: Ikea.

But no more. Ikea, who for years has named their comfortable, affordable, and dorm room-ready furniture by following a pretty strict system, is now in the trolling business, and business is good.

Last night, for reasons unknown, so for now we’ll just assume that they thought it would be funny, Ikea replaced the names of their products with common Google searches. So suddenly a thing like Lattjo becomes “My Family Doesn’t Respect Me” and Memnes becomes “My Friend Only Talks About Himself.”

This is all apart of “Ikea's Retail Therapy.” Through this site, Ikea doesn’t just furnish your apartment with practical and fashionable Swedish goods, but also fixes your life — or, at least, gives you something to buy, so you can forget about your actual problems. Check it out.

Of course there's an IKEA instructional manual on how to properly dress the IKEA Monkey, a 7-month-old Rhesus Macaque that became an overnight celebrity after he was found wandering around an IKEA store in Toronto, Canada earlier this week.

Have you met IKEA Monkey, the 7-month-old runaway primate dressed in a shearling coat that was found casually wandering around a Toronto IKEA store yesterday? According to the National Post, the monkey was spotted by staff members in the store's upper parking lot after escaping out of the cage and the car belong to its (now former) owners. This picture (shown left) was subsequently posted online by Bronwyn Page via Twitter, where the fashionable simian has already become a meme of sorts.

In a natural next step for the Swedish furniture giant, Ikea is building its own town, in East London. The neighborhood, called Strand East, will feature 1,200 homes and apartments in the Scandinavian style, and all will be rentals. Says Harald Müller, the head of Ikea's real estate arm: "We're just securing our money long-term –- and of course creating more profits at the end."
