The beloved arcade game Donkey Kong turns 40 years old this month.

^(disagrees with this part of the article and the audio due to the other parts of the article quoted here each involving texts of, "July 12, 2021" and due to various articles like the one I had quoted here earlier involving text of, "This Week in History for May 29-June 4"))
