Now, don't get us wrong, we love IKEA. Every home we've ever lived in has had a base-level of flatpack keeping it functioning. However, there have been times, deep in the warehouse section, frantically trying to find everything we need before the tills close (usually with a blister-inducing shoe or a wonky trolley) when we've wished we were anywhere else on earth.
One can only imagine trying to deal with all of that with a boyfriend like Simon in tow.
Simon, you see, is a funny man. A joker. A maverick. A man who knows not the importance of identifying the right base to that cabinet or just how crucial it is to bag a Billy in that limited-edition colour. Simon cares only about gags.
Funny-man Simon decided to film a recent trip around IKEA with Dana, making a series of hilarious puns from every item he encountered. He recorded Dana's reactions (which range from absolute despair to complete exasperation) and uploaded it to his YouTube channel. (We told you he was funny.)
Simon has only just moved in with Dana. He does not yet understand that IKEA is not a place for gags. But Simon will learn. We're sure Dana will teach him pretty quick.
