That is the Super Mario character that my co-workers think best characterizes my personality and style. Donkey Kong - the barrel hurtling, princess stealing big hairy ape. Not cute Toad or squeezable Yoshi with his retractable tongue. Not even clever, Italian Mario or Luigi. DK. As a result, I have a Donkey Kong figurine in my cube, facing off my neighbor Mario. Which got me thinking and searching for plastic figurines on the intraweb and, lo and behold, I discovered an entire subculture of little plastic vinyl people. Some of the guys were pretty adorkable - I could easily see myself spending over $50 on little plastic toys.
