  • "Let's not forget King Kong, the fictional giant gorilla terrorising New York City, in the same way the fictional giant lizard Godzilla would terrorise Los Angeles in California." May. 25, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "The word for an English or Continental European male monarch, corresponding to "emperor" in the Asian countries and "sultan" in Muslim areas (the words "queen", "empress", and "sultana" are the female equivalents). It is also a common English surname (as in Martin Luther King) and an occasional first name in the United States, as in the case of the film director King Vidor. There is also the term "drag king" which indicates a woman dressed up as a man, although drag queens (i.e. men dressed as women) are - and have always been - more popular."
