    Something that used to belong to my grandfather (toolbox maybe) had a decal on it for some speed equipment company that had a gorilla running stiff-armed like a football player with stripes on its ass. Can't remember what it was for. Anybody familiar with this? Have one? I googled it a number of ways and came up with nothing.

    Sounds like the old logo for Trans-Dapt. Haven't seen one in a lot of years.

    I believe it was "running like a raped ape" at least that's how I remember it.

    Make sure your google filter is on safe search if you type raped ape in the search bar. I shudder to think what's out there... Rule 34 you know.

    It was running like a striped-ass ape and, as stated, was a logo used by Trans-Dapt.

    What is rule 34?

    Perhaps " What has been seen, cannot be unseen"?

    Well, Gator found it!
    Our IT guy at work is a greybeard getting ready to retire. Whenever he gets a computer running really good he says "goin' like a raped ape" in his thickest Maine accent.

    Since this thread isn't closed yet, Rule 34 is that there is internet porn for everything - no exceptions. There are plenty of things I've stumbled across I wish I could bleach my eyes out, but as you say, What has been seen can not be unseen.

    Cool sticker.

    Gator I can't imagine what a raped ape would look like but one thing is for sure whoever did it would be the very first HAMBer that I would call a bad name. That would be one bad bama jama. ;)

    That,s not the one I remember. I recall one where the Ape was running away from the viewer. I think it was in black and white. Does anyone remember that one?
