Great Gorilla Run in San Francisco

Four hundred people dressed in gorilla suits ran in the first annual Great Gorilla Run in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco:

As if wearing a gorilla suit on a Sunday morning weren't unique enough, outfits were heavily accessorized. There were gorillas in leopard thongs, hemp flip-flops, Elvis suits, sunglasses, wigs, bonnets and Viking horns. There were gorillas with hula hoops, gorillas dancing to "SexyBack," gorillas on rollerblades and gorillas pulling red wagons.

"I had wanted to be Al Gore-illa, but the Al Gore mask didn't work over the gorilla mask," lamented Mike Nicolls of Palo Alto. He settled for a tight white Elvis pantsuit pulled over the gorilla suit. "I think the difficult thing will be running with the mask, as it's kind of hard to see out of."

Ah, San Francisco - I remember driving one day and spotting someone wearing cowboy chaps. AND NOTHING ELSE! No pants, no nothing. Just the chaps... The image was burned - burned! - into my consciousness. The horror!
