Monkey King for possible 2008 Olympic mascot?

A Monkey King figure, one of a number of contenders for the mascot for the 2008 Olympic Games, is seen in Beijing Thursday, Nov. 3, 2005. The city of Lianyungang has lobbied Beijing to make the Monkey King, a figure from Chinese folklore, the mascot of the 2008 Olympics. Some of China's poorer places are competing to see their candidates selected, hoping that a victory will raise name recognition and tourism revenues. (AP Photo)
