Sam, Sam, the Gorilla Man

Every day, from 9-5, Sam stands outside a mattress store on Market Street in downtown Akron, OH, holding a sign that reads, "Will work for bananas." Passers-by honk their horns as Sam waves and dances in the middle of the sidewalk. He's very friendly, I promise. December 2005
