Hibbidy-Wah?! NintenDon’t Go There!

Video games feel like they’ve been around forever.  Sure, they might not always have been electronic, or in a sense (lost) “video,” but people have always used games as a distraction.  What I’m trying to say is this: painting the Sistine Chapel was no different from a marathon run of World of Warcraft.  Michelangelo was bored (for four years), and this was his distraction.

I guess that’s the essence of what I’m getting at… video games, or the need for distractions, is eternal.  Well, maybe not eternal.  Only since we as a human species haven’t had to worry about getting eaten by wild animals, die from the simple cold, or basically fight to survive.  Wait.  Scratch all that.

What I really want to say is thank Pong that video games exist.  And thank Pong this game doesn’t:

And thank Pong this kid recorded his experiment in tastelessness (perhaps) and ignorance (definitely):

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Do you think I’d get the same response if my gamer tag was PongDiedLOL?  Or what if instead of painting this:

This took four years? Heh. I could do it in two... hundred.

Ol’ Michelangelo painted this:

Get it? It's like Ping-Pong minus the Ping!

Also acceptable (and probably the better joke):

And the Lord said, "Let there be... Me-damn it! You scored again, Adam! Keep this up, and I'm making you a girlfriend that will keep interrupting you!"
