I'll always remember finding that promisingly titled PlayStation 2 game at the local physical media vendor. I was looking for used DVDS at the time, because of course I owned the PS2 for its DVD and CD playback capabilities, but I couldn't help but to pick up a box emblazoned with the words Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy. I took it home and started playing, and sure enough, the gameplay incorporated both a sphinx and a cursed mummy -- the story checked out! Apparently the SA Forum Goons haven't always been so fortunate, so they've made their own artwork that cautions would-be consumers about what to really expect from these deceitful amusements. I don't really get any of these jokes, because I've still never played anything but Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy: Why risk it when the gaming landscape is apparently so fraught with falsehoods? But if you're curious about one of the featured games despite the clear warnings about its brazen treachery, you can always use TinEye to identify the culprit!
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
