The Kong’s Birth

Donkey Kong’s first ever appearance was at Crazy Dale’s Wine and Spirits off of I-40 in Flagstaff, Arizona in 1976. Donkey Kong read Kerouac excerpts and would do faux-bongo accompaniment on two decorative barrels while his friend Kamal read poetry.

The Kong’s Introduction to Video Games

The first video game that Donkey Kong ever played was 3 Ninjas Kick Back on the Atari LYNX in 1993, and it turned him off of playing them forever. He still stars in plenty, but has decided, much like the sober bartender, that the thrill he provides is not reflexive.

The Kong’s Struggles

Donkey Kong, despite his massive strength, has very low self esteem and it hurts him from time to time. He does sees a therapist every two weeks and he credits him with helping him contextualize and compartmentalize all of his aspects of life.

Donkey Kong led the National League in hits in the 1994 at the time of the player’s strike’s beginning. He never had a season that successful again and holds some malice for Bud Selig still.

The Kong’s Downfall

After a dispute with the Roman people, the prefect Pontius (Pontie) Pilate IV publicly crucified the Kong in town square under unfair grounds. Later evidence proved him innocent.

The Kong can be found from time to time back at Crazy Dale’s reading out of the same Kerouac copy, earmarked and ripped to shreds. He remains a big silly gorilla who loves bananas and goes on adventures with his friends and his new shit “Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze” is available for Nintendo Switch.

Joe can be found on Twitter @joebush_joebush, on Facebook at The Post Hole, and at the state courthouse lobbying to get the shoe he threw at ex-Governor Bill Graves back.
