Passenger keeps monkey under his hat

August 8, 2007, NEW YORK - A man smuggled a monkey onto an airplane Tuesday, stashing the furry fist-size primate under his hat.

The escapade began in Lima, Peru, late Monday, when the man boarded a flight to Ft. Lauderdale, said Spirit Airlines spokeswoman Alison Russell.

During a connecting flight to La Guardia, people around the man noticed that the marmoset had emerged, Russell said.

How I would have loved to be the one that got to say, "Excuse me, Sir, but is that a monkey on your head?"
