Happy National Gorilla Suit Day! (U.S.A.)

Created by Mad Magazine cartoonist Don Martin, NGSD gives license to folks who wish to indulge in fantasies of full-body hirsuteness without needing to either become a robot monster or kidnap Jessica Lange. For more information, see this post by Mark Evanier (courtesy of the Wayback Machine, proof that the intarwub truly has an elephant-like memory).

And for more on gorillas -- and apes, and monkeys -- in comics, see Michael Eury's Comics Gone Ape! The Missing Link to Primates in Comics.

PS: To non-U.S. citizens: Don't worry! Just for today, consider yourself an honorary American.
