'It's On Like Donkey Kong': San Francisco Politics Illustrated

When Supervisor Chris Daly last night punctuated his promise to Board President David Chiu that he'd “haunt him politically” by uttering “It's on like Donkey Kong,” he transcended the bizarre and entered the sublime. He caused a legion of hardened City Hall-watchers to say something they never thought would cross their lips: “I can't believe Chris Daly just said that.”

Don't look now, but Daly's reference last night is currently among Google's very highest for the search term “It's on like Donkey Kong.” Quite a feat for a decades-old, passe expression.
