Pac-Man Memories

“Yeah, I was ‘the shy one,’ which, if you ask anyone who knows me, is a total fiction,” says “Inky,” who for over 30 years chased the legendary video game hero, along with his three brothers “Blinky,” “Pinky,” and “Clyde” in the arcade classic. “We’d hit the bars after work, and I was always the one out there mixing it up, starting a line dance, whatever.”

Now a fixture on the convention circuit, the light blue ghost still enjoys the attention from the fans. “A lot of the kids worked out this thing where they take a cookie or a gumball, and eat it in one bite like it’s a power pill, and then I change color and make the face, you know, like I’m scared, and the kids just go nuts for it. You should see their faces. Makes it all worthwhile.”

    Apologies if I have asked this before, but Mike: will you marry me?

      I’ll second that! Two is better than one! 🙂

    Mike has a long line of ladies waiting to marry him already. I have been in line since about 2006. 🙂

    I bet Inky made a fortune in quarters! Wonder how he spent it all.

    Most people would just point to a cute guinea pig in a hat.

    We get a mini autobiography about a fallen celebrity and morality tale for sugary drugs. With the expectant punchline hovertext.

    that’s why we keep coming back
