King Kong

Giant gorillas make really good pets if you live on an island where dinosaurs are trying to eat you. If you live anywhere else, a giant gorilla is about the worst pet there is... unless you count cats. No pet is worse than a cat.

Nice Kong and really funny article about the cat as a pet, I had missed that one. I have never understood why anyone would be crazy about cats, what exactly can you do with a cat?

ROFL! Look at those googly eyes! And love the detail on that itty bitty woman! LOL! So cool! And A-MEN to the "cat" comment. And I totally missed your blog entry about cats. My gosh..so funny...and SO TRUE!!!

Been there, done that, won't do it again. And to think I went all the way to Skull Island to get myself a giant gorilla only to find out what you just told us. Where were you two years ago? Would've saved me a lot of trouble.
Awesome drawing Shane! You constantly amaze me.

Yeah dude, cats are lame. The dreamy look on the gorillas face is fantastic! Good stuff man.

On the other hand if you are a 900 pound gorilla, having a pet Faye Raye would be pretty sweet. Just look at how much this gorilla loves his pet.

Amen on the cats thing. They're currently using the entire perimeter of my backyard as their personal litter box. Can I borrow your Kong to take care of the problem.

The only thing worse than a cat is 2 cats. I wish I had a pet gorilla. He would probably kill me though. Maybe I'll just get a cat instead... or maybe 2 cats.

funny how love makes us a little cross-eyed...I guess that's why two people have to fall in love at exactly the same time -becuase if one does it just a minute before the other then they look sort of retarded and the other person says, Hey forget about it.

You are officially my favorite drawer of apes...except those 3 other guys.
