>Some Shit I Forgot to Write About – The BloWkus episode

Posted: January 21, 2011 in holidays, shit i forgot to write about, wtf

>Ever have one of those moments where you’re, like, “What the Hell am I going to write my blog about today?” and your boss is all, “Rod, you know we’re in a meeting and you just said that out loud, right?”

Yeah. Me too.

So when you’re playing, it’s supposed to look something like this:


Unless I own it and have, like, 20 minutes free time on my hands.

At which point, you get this:


And, yes, I literally sat there for a while trying to find the best combination of pieces for the best result of what it would look like if Pong had a threesome and somewhere in there is a drinking game.

And therapy.

And a lawsuit by Mattel, I’m sure.
