This figure shows the gorilla, commonly referred to as Donkey Kong, in non-pixelated form. What the book doesn’t show you is his nasty temperament and propensity for throwing barrels at people.
My New Year’s resolution summed up in one word.
“A Gorillion Dollars” shows an ape that’s all about the stacks on stacks on climbin’ skyscraper stacks. This monkey’s got so much money, it’s measured in the Gorillions… and wears a top hat.
Look at the face of a true hero. An unnamed soldier that does battle in the far reaches of space in the name of science and his country.

That’s JoJo and he runs this town. I suggest that you deliver his bananas on time.

On a completely unrelated note, here’s a video of me joyriding around on a segway last weekend:
