I had a lot of fun writing this update, even though most of it was written while under the strain of a terrible hangover. I really do love Intellivision games and they are a huge part of my childhood. My favorite games were Bump N Jump, Burger Time, AD&D, Utopia, Frog Bog, and B-17 Bomber which was the first speaking game ever made and you needed a special module to run it. I normally know an update is going to be pretty good (at least to me), when I giggle like an imp while writing it. I do almost all my updates at work when I have spare time, so my co-workers have learned to accept this as normal behavior for me. When I am struggling for ideas and it takes me an hour to do a paragraph, I can tell the update will be subpar and I'm just not in the mood to be funny. When that happens, I out source my updates to cheap foreign comedy writers in Asia. Translating it is a bitch.
Here is a flash version of Burger Time that you can play at work or school! Send me your high scores and I will laugh in your face.
I'm slowly weaning myself off the Vicodin, but this stuff really rocks my socks. I feel like I can lift this chair, OVER MY HEAD!
I want to thank Humanity for making the artwork for today’s update. I’m going to ask him if I need help from now on because he is much more pleasant to work with than Shmorky. Shmorky is a big fat buttface. I also want to give props to Spacecow for the awesome Steve Perry images. Rock!
Burger Time Trivia Bonus: The reason one of the food items is an egg is because in Japan it is a common topping option on hamburgers. Those fucking goofballs.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: My cat’s ear is folded inside out, but I’m not going to fix it. It’s part of God’s plan.

Ok I’m going to sleep now. All this beer didn’t react well to the Vicodin, Zoloft, and Cheez-Its. Toodles.
The first phase of The Olive Garden's cyber rollout will introduce their Neverending Pneumatic Pasta Tube. This works on the same principal as bank drive-thru deposit tubes, but with unfrozen linguini and spaghetti.
Do you remember the crazy clothes and hair of the 1990s? Do you remember Crystal Pepsi and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Do you remember where you hid the box your mother gave you?
It's still okay to like Ben Stiller, guys.
