I'll tell you who stole the's that damn Sasquatch

A Chinese man who calls himself King Kong has launched a campaign to convince Chinese officials to allow him to carry the Olympic torch.
"The Olympics belong to everyone - the common people and those with abnormalities included," Yu Zhenhuan said.

"First I am a celebrity, inside and outside of China. Secondly, I think my experience in coping with a disfigurement ties in with the notion of the Olympic spirit."

Hair covers 96 per cent of Mr Yu's body.

I can't help but feel that he would make a worthy candidate if it weren't for the fact that he's not the world's hairiest man.
He may be surpassed only by a pair of Mexican brothers, Victor "Larry" and Gabriel "Danny" Ramos Gomez, listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as having 98 per cent hair cover.

Heck, I think the East German women even had this guy beat. Ah, well, I still would like to see this big hairball running. I just hope he doesn't use too much hairspray that day...

"Hey, that guy is wearing my shirt! Yeah, you, that's my shirt! ... OH! AH! Uh, heh, no, I was, uh, talking to someone else...that's different than you."

If this is the right guy I'm thinking of, not only should he be running the Olympic torch, but should be the starting point guard for the Chinese Olympic basketball team - have you seen this guy dunk? Also would win the dance off at Olympic prom.
