I laughed immeasurably the other night as I watched ESPN Monday Night Countdown in a bar. Because of the noise, the closed captioning was on and a reference to Donkey Kong was typed as “Donkey Congress”. Which is funny on several levels.
The laughter ended abruptly however, when my husband and I were completel stumped as to why Donkey Kong is called Donkey Kong, when there is less than one donkey anywhere in the game. Kong is self explanatory…and Monkey Kong is damn near appropriate, and yet, it’s called Donkey Kong.
