Nintendo Now Owns 'It's on Like Donkey Kong'

You know that catchphrase ‘it’s on like Donkey Kong’? It’s usually used when stuff is about to go down! When two people have taken enough crap from each other, and there’s no where else to go but toe-to-toe against each other. Well, Nintendo has filed a request with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to officially own the popular phrase.

The decision was made in honor of the upcoming release of Donkey Kong Country Returns for Nintendo Wii on November 21. Come November 21, dare I say, ‘it’s on like Donkey Kong!’
