The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

King Kong has been kept alive on life support by surgeon Amy Franklin since his plunge from the World Trade Center. He is in drastic need of a blood transfusion, but only another giant ape can provide the amount, and type, of blood Kong needs. Adventurer Hank Mitchell discovers a female giant ape in Borneo, though, and the surgery is a success. However Kong and his new mate escape to wreak havoc.
