Play the World’s Biggest Pac-Man game right on your computer!

It’s going on now online, and is being played by people around the world.

There now.  Doesn’t that sound like a whole lot more fun than work??


Let the games continue!

Let the makers of XBox, GameBoy, Nintendo, and every other video, digital, and handheld game rejoice — it’s not your fault!

Up to now, society has been happy to point the finger firmly in your direction when people asked: why are America’s teenagers so fat?

“They’re sitting inside all day and night, playing those evil video games!”

“They’re not getting enough exercise — they just sit and stare at their computers!”

Hope they didn’t pay too much for that study. (Should have used their computers more…)
