Kong = King Bomb?


Many of my friends were walking around in a daze today, their minds punchy and overwhelmed in their anticipation of a colossal ape's arrival. In less than 2 hours (at the time of writing) King Kong begins to beat his chest in theatres across North America.

I want to be as excited as my peers; I really do.
