The venerable video game Tetris celebrates its silver anniversary this year – that’s right, everybody’s favorite puzzle game is 25 years old! And you know, it’s still a lot of fun, isn’t it?
But somehow, when inventor Alexey Pajitnov created this elegantly simple diversion, I don’t imagine he had it in mind that the bricks that comprise his creation would someday become oversized, sentient and threaten the populace. Hardly! This is not was Dr. Pajitnov had in mind, and you giant Tetris pieces should be ashamed of yourselves for thinking this is what your creator wants you to do.
As I so often find myself saying, in these waxing days of the new millennium: What has science wrought?

I’m really leery of piracy and copyright/brand infringement – I’ve had a bad taste in my mouth ever since I got burned on that copy of PhotoShop I got on eBay that turned out to be a dud (my first clue should have been the fact that PhotoShop was spelled with a “K”). And so, color me a cynic, but I’m inclined to believe that this is NOT Curious George but some cheap knock-off. Where’s the guy with the yellow hat? Where’s the Jack Johnson music? I call shenanigans on Curious Forge!
(Curious Forge! Isn’t that clever? Just came up with that, just now. Totally.)
Also: Hellllooo ladies!

“Judge says, ‘what you got in your defense, son?’ I said ’57 channels and nothing’s on.’” Wouldn’t have had that problem if you had this sucker! I bet this thing could find entertaining content at the drop of an antennae-shaped hat. Why, I bet there’s a button here marked “Gooder Than Hell.” Gotta buy one of these.
Also, hellllloooo ladies!
Get out of the way, everybody, because I’m about to rock this thing! The mike stand don’t stand a chance! Seriously, how much fun would it be to get on this thing and bust out a few bars of “Precious and Few” by Climax? Or maybe “After the Lovin’” by Engelbert Humperdinck. That’s one of my classics.
