from CNN web site: Chaos in NYC!!!! : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

(AP) Associated Press - Millenium celebrations were thrown into chaos today in Times Square when a giant ape suddenly appeared and proceeded to eat innocent bystanders. It is not known at this time how a 50 foot tall ape managed to sneak by 8,000 police officers and 5 police helicopters stationed in the famous square but authorities were quick to point out that the ape is NOT a Y2K glitch and that people should not top off their gas tanks or buy generators.

That story sounds fishy to me. I have been to New York, and there are no "innocent bystanders."

Oh yeah, O Yeah?? Well maybe that's because you got there after the ape. 8^)

ATE innocent bystanders? I don't think so - giant apes are vegetarians. EVERYBODY knows that!

No, he was just picking his teeth with them....

Notice that Magilla Gorilla was the poster. Sounds like some sort of blatant self-promotion. Maybe he's got a movie coming up...
