Pointless Question of the Day
Don't ask to play Q-Bert on my arcade machine. The original game required a 4-way joystick mounted diagonally, which is practically impossible to emulate on a properly mounted joystick, making an already frustrating game all the more agonizing.

Besides that, Q-Bert is one filthy-mouthed video game character. When he dies he always screams @!#?@!.

Poll #384947 Q-Bert's Profanity

What six-letter epithet do you suppose Q-Bert is always shouting at the springy snake thing?

I picked something just so I could see the poll results and I ended up picking the same thing you voted...what are the odds of that?

Re: Asshat

Great minds think alike.

For future reference, you can click on the "Poll #nnnnnn" to get to the results without voting (assuming you have permission).

I'm surprised you didn't mention that great (circa 1986) Q-Bert book we saw at the Jiffy Lube on Capitol on Saturday. That was pretty hilarious.

Oh yeah, I totally forgot about that! We should have ripped that off. It's totally collectible.

Oh, and Q-Bert was released in '83. I guess Q didn't reach children's book status until a few years later.
