I saw this movie 25 years ago, and it sucked.

So maybe it went like this -
A few guys are sitting around getting baked and one says "Dude, you know what would be really awesome? Yea, if we had that giant gorilla sitting right here"

Somebody had to be high to scheme up this theft.

To get back to the warning that I received. You may take it with however many grains of salt that you wish. That the brown acid that is circulating around us isn't too good. It is suggested that you stay away from that. Of course it's your own trip. So be my guest, but please be advised that there is a warning on that one, ok?

where was he sitting?

Umm, this was in Gladstone Oregon...

Had the inflatable gorilla gone missing from a roof in Portland, we would have elected it mayor by now, but only after it had an inappropriate relationship with a hot 17 year old boy and appeared in a cameo on Portlandia (as an endangered fish at a city council meeting).

Inappropriate? The boy was hot.

Because I have nothing clever to say about the article, here's a link to play gorillas.bas online.

/Still play it in DOS 5 on a 386 in my "museum".

While I'm sure Portland Police Bureau would be happy to pass on the info, or give you the correct number, the correct agency to contact would be Clackamas Count Sheriff. This didn't happen in Portland or Gladstone (though it is a Gladstone address.)

I used to live right across the freeway from this spa place. I always hated their stupid crap on top of the building. Especially the lame "spas" blimp they had flying overhead for years. The gorilla went up shortly before we moved away.

That's what I was thinking too, but TFA states that 2 air compressors were also stolen.

Except with more facial sores and fewer teeth.

As I recall, the cartoon King Kong was more of a teal colour, so no, I haven't seen a 30 foot blue ape lately.

But then again, if he was wearing yellow polka dots, maybe he was afraid to come out of the water.
