Get your hands off me you damned dirty ape!

But I love my groovy gorilla girl,
And her groovy, gorgeous gape, oh
And her fabulous zoo-keeper father
My love looks like an ape

See, that's why the Soviet Union couldn't hold together. They went with apes, whereas the smart countries focused on killer dolphins: http://observer.guardian.co.uk/international/story/0,6903,1577753,00.html

"a new invincible human being, insensitive to pain, resistant and indifferent about the quality of food they eat."

Let's see...I'm six foot six...I just got through a painful breakup with my girlfriend and survived o.k...since she left me I've been eating convenience store burritos with little to no adverse effects or discontent...and, sadly, I am covered with hair. Looks like the experiment worked.

My favorite line: "Mr Ivanov's experiments, unsurprisingly from what we now know, were a total failure."

Glad we cleared that up. I was worried for a minute.

I know the guy they needed, he just hadn't been born yet. Big man named Randy, former Marine. Resistant to pain? He still has a scar on his arm from where he cut off a tatoo with a lit cigar and a pocket knife. Doesn't care what he eats? I used to serve him on the third shift at Waffle House all the time. War machine? Not only is he a former marine, the time he held off half of the city and county police from his trailer is legend. Ahhhhh, good ol Randy....

In the car on the way to [finally] see King Kong (2005) the other day, a friend said that he had heard that King Kong (1933, with Faye Ray) was Adolf Hitler's favorite movie because it awed him. Maybe if Stalin had succeeded in starting a nation of apes, Hitler would have been to intimidated to attack him...Maybe World War 2 never would have happened (insert dramatic music here).

Pretty much when fans talked about it in the 1940s, yes. Also see Alan Moore.

Also when Alan Moore did a fine job.
