Donkey Kong is a popular ape. Ever since he debuted in 1981, he's become a pop-culture icon and is referenced in a variety of TV shows, movies, and even music. I'm sure most of you have heard or even used the phrase "It's on like Donkey Kong" in some form or another. Well, now Nintendo wants to apply a trademark to that phrase with the upcoming release of Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii. The phrase has a variety of meanings, including wanting to kick some behind, so it will be interesting to see if Nintendo can get it trademarked. If you are wondering, the game comes out on November 21st and Nintendo filed the trademark request with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office yesterday.
