A few weeks ago, I was watching Conan O’Brian and Jay Leno was the guest. Leno told this weird story ordering things off of the back of comic books. He said that when he was a kid (1960’s?) he ordered something called “monkey in a teacup”. He told a big, long, hilarious story about it, but didn’t seem to know what it actually was. From what he said, it was actually alive and ran around the house before his mother opened the door and it rushed out never to be seen again.
What? Was there some actual creature you could order through the mail (besides sea monkeys)? Does anyone know what “monkey in a teacup” actually was? Please answer, it’s driving me crazy!
