    ...I don't know why, but I do. Badly. Anyone know where I can get one of these sexy beasts for a decent price?

    Try ebay. I bought a Tigger costume for about $30 with free shipping.

    I have the fur suit, sans gloves/head. Bought it at Trash American Style back around xmas 2000. Malcolm said, "was thinking about keeping it, but if you wear it to the mall, I'll let ya have it for $10"
    15 minutes later I was in macy's with a black hairsuit...just like every time I'm in macy's, I suppose...

    All, I know is good ones ain't cheap...

    I was thinking about this just recently. Saw a video on youtube of Frank Zappa's 1974 band performing "Florentine Pogen" live, and when it got to the part about "Chester's gorilla, she go oink!" some guy in a full gorilla suit came out from backstage and started playfully harassing drummer Chester Thompson.

    Made me want to get a gorilla suit

    (...or play with Chester Thompson, which ain't gonna happen, so the suit's my consolation prize.)

    Are you sure? I'd watch Trading Places first & see if you still want one afterwards.

    Oh god...I want it so I can go busking with a paper hat and a gorilla costume, it just popped into my head a couple days ago but now I wanna do it! Making a Whamola to go with it...I will be the best busker on earth playing my Whamola Jam in my gorilla costume with a paper hat on.

    I need bright orange sunglasses to go with this...

    You think I could get a busking license with a Whamola? I'm definitely auditioning next year.

  17. You can always shave Phalex and use said hair to create your own custom gorilla costume.
